iPhone 7 and Leica M9-P Slug it Out in Camera Battle

by Habeeb Onawole 5

Smartphone cameras have gotten better in recent years with some even offering performance on par with some DSLRs and Rangefinders. Shin Noguchi is a Japanese street photographer and he has decided to pit the camera from one of this year’s flagship devices, the iPhone 7, against a Leica M9-P with a Leica Summicron 35mm f/2 lens.

So how does an $800 phone stack up against a camera setup that sells for $9000? Shin takes both cameras for an outdoor shoot and from the results, the iPhone 7 doesn’t do badly.

In Shin Noguchi’s words ”the iPhone 7 is the best 1/3” sensor camera. Nothing more, nothing less.”. While the Leica rangefinder does a great job, he said he’s fascinated by the photo quality of new smartphones.

Need an extra reason to get the iPhone 7? You have it up there.

What do you think about the photos? Do you think the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus  will be able to hold its own against the Pixel phones which have been reported to have the best cameras on a phone?

    This looks faker than a Big Foot sighting. Either this guy is a terrible photographer or he isn’t using a real Leica M9.
