Camera phones are advancing all the time, and I'm watching them develop carefully although there's no sign of them replacing long-range, sports and action camera/lens combinations such as the Sony A1 camera with Sony 100-400mm and Sony 200-600mm lenses, or large aperture lenses such as Sony's 50mm F1.2 and 135mm F1.8 lenses. I'm really excited about my new iPhone 14 Pro Max, which arrived in September 2022, with examples of RAW photos below. With its 48 megapixel camera, this could be transformational for travel and street photography. I'm relatively impressed so far, although the beautiful bokeh of a full-frame mirrorless camera with excellent lens is missing. Also, when viewed at 100%, images have a softer look than say a Sony A1 or A7R IV with a 24mm F1.4 GM lens. Images from an earlier iPhone 12 Pro Max are also included below for comparison.
