How the iPhone 5 Camera Stacks Up with a DSLR

In our iPhone 5 camera battle, we mostly pitted it against cameras in its own weight class: the Galaxy SIII, the HTC One X and the 4S. Sure, we stacked the odds a bit when we compared it to the Canon S100 and Nokia's 808 PureView, but we didn't go as far as to see how it fared with a Canon 5D Mark III. Maybe we should… » 9/24/12 7:30pm 9/24/12 7:30pm

Canon DSLRs are popular for video shooting, and you can pull beautiful footage from the low end Rebel series to the high end 1D series.
