Smartphone cameras are pretty powerful especially that several flagship models have multi lenses/sensors now, but can a $100 accessory make them just as good as a professional full-frame camera?

    The xenvo lens is probably too small for the "large" sensor on the 12 pro max I read somewhere that even the s20 fe has a larger sensor than the 12 pro max so that's why large was in quotations but yeah fyi I have a canon 200d cause I need more versatility for my photography/cinematography work xD

    It would be interesting to see the results you get with Momo VS stock while using a tripod and either a self-timer or wired/wireless shutter so there is no camera/phone movement. My guess is that your shots with the Momo lenses will benefit from a stationary placement.

I have been toying with the idea of getting a moment lens (plus case and CPL) for my iPhone 12 Pro Max but the outlay required made me pause for thought. In the meantime I thought I'd try a clip-on CPL which cost me just $6.00 !!! (I'm in China so these sorts of things can be very inexpensive. Doing my first trial it certainly works & I can't tell any drawbacks (other than it's a bit finicky getting it aligned properly, but what do you expect for only $6 !!!

    LLamaCannon 1个月 前

    Honestly, if you buy 3 or 4 of those lenses (140*4) you are spending close to 600 dollars, not including a flagship phone. For that money you should buy a second-hand DSLR with a 50mm 1.8F and get insanely better performance. Best part is, if you want to add anything just buy new lenses and 3 years down the line just buy a new camera that can fit your already bought lenses. Cameras in phones in my humble opinion are not replacing actual cameras anytime soon. I say this as someone who switched from phone cameras to DSLR just to see what the hype was about.

    The Sony RX100 VII is a good compromise if I don't want to carry a large DSLr but want better phoot/ video quality than what my iPhone 12 Pro or Pixel 2 XL can provide (for most images this is pretty rare). I plan on getting the Alpha cameras though as it allows for lens swapping.
