Here's what happens when you give a Nexus 5 to a photographer
One way or another, it's clear that smartphones have already narrowed quite the gap in terms of quality, compared to traditional DSLRs. Sure, sure, it's still a child's play for the latter, but there's no denying that phones are coming dangerously close to transforming the traditional DSLR into a professionals-only product. That's because smartphones can now manage shots that are more than good enough for 99% of the trigger-happy crowd out there. These people are not professionals, and most smartphone snaps taken are done by amateurs or hobbyists at best. But what happens if you put a flagship phone into the hands of a trained professional? Some pretty darn good shots. Duh!
Anyway, Italian blog AndroidWorld has done just that with a Nexus 5. They've given the budget-friendly flagship to a professional photographer for a month, and the results are quite impressive, indeed. Some of the snaps below, taken by photographer Alexander Michelazzi, have been edited, using VSCO Cam or the built-in Android editor. According to the reviewers, the Nexus 5 is the best cameraphone in its class.
