Everyone knows that the iPhone 5S has a great camera. I say it myself all the time, even as someone who’s spent too many thousands on cameras and lenses over the years.

What does that really mean, though? It’s true that the iPhone 5S does take better pictures than just about any other smartphone.

But how close am I to throwing away my dedicated photography setup? I decided to put the 5S against a “real” camera — taking near-identical snapshots across a day and night in Harajuku, Tokyo — to see how things shake out in practice.

Interesting comparison, and it’s no surprise which device wins.
