With the recent Apple announcement of their updated line of iPhones and their deeper pixels, we thought it’d be fun to dive into mobile photography. Ever since Apple, Samsung, and the like began investing serious R&D, Marketing, and PR dollars into that tiny little camera sensor and lens assembly, we’ve seen a gigantic industry evolve, which spawned even more cottage industries to support it. Whether you agree with it or not, mobile photography is a very real thing. It’s not a fad and it’s not something we think you should discount so easily.

Fortunately, we’re joined by David Imel, an experienced and knowledgeable journalist who has covered a multitude of phones and the companies who make them, writing for Android Authority. David joins us to discuss his thoughts on the topic and also shares why he’s not quite ready to leave his Fujifilm camera on the shelf for the latest phone in his pocket.
