Recently, Qualcomm deliberately made a headline-grabbing claim, by boasting their, soon-to-be-released, SnapDragon 820 chip would be able to "support superior DSLR-quality photography and enhanced computer vision", all in the palm of your hand, via a smartphone.
This incendiary statement flies in the photography world of reality. The new chip runs on the new 14-bit Qualcomm Spectra ISP and Qualcomm claims 4K video capability at 60 fps, 25 MP at 30 fps, 40% less battery consumption, 40% faster processing, superior autofocus, and last but not least, NO shutter lag.
Clearly, no thinking person, let alone informed photographers will pay much attention to such a sound bite but I reference the Qualcomm claim in this post to highlight my point - too many people think equipment alone makes a better photographer. Take a look at my recent posts on Smart Phones vs DSLR Cameras and Photography with an inexpensive camera.
