With that out of the way, let us explore how a smartphone camera works. The principle is essentially the same as for DSLRs and smartphone cameras: the sensor is the device that records the images and displays them on the screen.

The aperture dictates how much light the sensor can absorb, which determines the amount of image light that reaches the actual sensor and ultimately the picture you see on the screen. This in turn is controlled by the shutter speed, which dictates how often the camera must take an image and the quality of the image.

Lets explore some of the differences between the two types of cameras. Smartphone cameras differ from DSLR’s in the way they are designed. A smartphone has no optical lens at all, instead it utilizes one of many image sensors located inside the device.

This sensor may be a pinhole camera or a sensor that is part of the LCD screen itself. This sensor takes the image and compresses it into the pixelated form that we all know as a digital photograph. This digital photography ability allows for a number of different shutter speeds and focal length options.

The clarity of the image produced by smartphone cameras is not as good as that offered by DSLRs. The reason for this is simply the nature of the lens used. Smartphones have a smaller sensor than DSLRs. The lens on a smartphone camera is usually a lot smaller and much less robust than that found on DSLRs.

In addition, the lens on a smartphone camera may be better suited for low light situations where image clarity isn’t as important. Another difference is found in the size and shape of the lens.

Smartphones use the CPU to compose the image instead of relying on the camera’s internal lens. As a result, the lens is much smaller on many smartphone models. The result is a camera that is proportioned to the size of the device. For example, a smartphone with a large display will require a relatively large lens in order to capture an image with a high level of detail.
