Canon 700D vs iPhone X camera?
Sorry all camera enthusiasts!

So, i tried googling it, but only 700D vs iPhone 6/7/SE came up, suggesting that those phones are the equal in camera quality, but that surely cant be the case? So, which one is better?

Links and pre-knowledge appreciated

I would have to say not. No iPhone has good zoom, as it's basically all Digital-Zoom, which we all know is terrible at best.

In any camera that can even begin to be deemed as "good" it needs to have a good mechanical-zoom, at the least.

However also keep in mind, many cameras of any kind you try to compare, can be hard to compare right off the bat due in part to their default ISO settings and alike. This often needs careful tweaking by the user to better suit their camera-usage needs, lighting environment, etc.

If you are going to use it for casual photography iPhone might be more handy since you wont need to carry camera around you. However since the sensor on 700D would be larger that means more light can pass through the lens and you have wide ringe of lenses to choose from in an DSLR in your case 700D. The difference between 2 will be noticeble when you use them in an low light enviroment where 700D will be superior.

iPhone has a decent Camera considering what you are getting inside a Phone, I have to give it that much. But yea it will depend on your usage, and what you may want to have for options, as well as output wants/needs. No phone camera is going to be a match towards any DSLR

You cannot compare phone camera with full-size digital cameras. Latter are always better. Just because of optic laws.

I wouldnt even go for an iphone x if u wanted some smartphone cam. A pixel 2 is cheaper and competes with it. Its better in some areas with the iphone x. I cant say that its better than it because its personal preference and it would trigger a lot of iphone fanboys. Not only that, you can get a s9 for around 600 to 700. The s9 currently has the best low light camera in any smartphone, like seriously, nothing can even come close to it in low light, if thats what you like to take a lot. If you want a cheap phone that can work, but not overly amazing, a one plus 6 could work too. Its not the best camera out there, but its certainly amazing for the 520 dollar price, and the "bezeless" design with a notch. It also destroyed the iphone x in most speed tests, search it up, im serious. Overall, the iphone x isnt a bad choice, im just saying price wise, its the worst you can do to yourself, especially the fact that your wasting your money, and new iphones release in a couple of months, the spotlights obviously the rumored budget iphone x (still around 700 to 800) with noticeable downgrades from the iphone x for the budget. If your only gonna go for photography, i would still HIGHLY go for the 700d cause its meant for photography.

If you have the money, get a high quality camera. The iphone x just isnt worth the 1000 price point, you could even be "saving" by getting a regular iphone 8 which has a pretty decent camera overall. There are MUCH cheaper options like the pixel 2, which is hailed as the smartphone camera king, but i still think that the iphone x, pixel 2, and the s9 plus are all equivalent, they're so close that you cant say one is better. But its likely you already have some kinda smartphone, you dont need it. Unless if you have like an iphone 5, or a s5, or.... you get the idea, you should upgrade. Note, this is only for the camera section. If you can ONLY use an iphone and you're really that stubborn of a iphone fanboy, then wait for the new iphones that are coming later this year.

Are you implying android users are peasants? The arguement of "android users are peasants" makes no sense, and does not support the "iphone is better". If anything, more expensive is supposed to be a bad thing, im just the one trying to save my money, not to spend on overrated and overpriced products. Plus, the flagship android smartphones can range from 700 to 900 dollars, while the only smartphone iphone offers that can somewhat compete with android flagship phones is a 1000 dollars. Heck, i would use that to buy a gtx 1080, or something better than my amd radeon hd 7970. Anyways what im saying is, people who use the "android users are peasants" arguement is totally irrelevant, rude, and is false.

Honestly, go for a 700d, and if you even wanted the iphone x, im guessing you have a 1000 dollars laying around. Go invest in a good camera, it may help you some day, unlike a smartphone you'll likely throw away in like 2 to 4 years.

Seriously? Just go with the camera. You'll have a mechanical zoom, capability to take 32GB's of photos...and at a significantly higher pixel density.

Even if you don't get the DSLR, your average point and shoot digital camera will still be a better choice than any camera on a mobile device.

Not at all. I ment everyone buys what he prefers better. If I don't like Google Pixel, I wouldn't buy it and that's all. But if anybody HATES one specific smartphone... That's probably means that he wants to have it, but can not pay the price.

Yeah, not because of the freedom that Android offers or anything like that.
