The day DSLR becomes obsolete is getting closer :)

Look at the photos below and guess is it Canon or Nikon?

The answer is: the photos were taken with Motorola Droid X using HDR Camera+.

Ok, sure a mobile cannot beat a DSLR now, but a compact is probably unneeded once you have a modern camera phone with advanced imaging features like those developed by Almalence.

And, of course, it’s a great example of the fact that a good photograph comes from the skill of photographer, not the camera.

The photos are from tosthed’s photostream on flickr. Check that photostream for probably the best mobile photos you’ve ever seen.
