Head-2-Head Review: Apple iPhone 3G S vs. Canon EOS 5D Mk II

Introduction: The Matchup

By Alex Burack

The Matchup
We, here at H2H Reviews pride ourselves on our resistance to buzz. We can’t do much to give you a fair comparison between products if we get swept up in all the hype everyone else does, now can we? That said, the two cameras, (and, well, OK, we’re maybe using that term a little loosely), we’re looking at here share a considerable amount of industry buzz, hype, and even hysteria. They both can lay claim to that one aspect that keeps marketing execs awake at night - the fact they both redefine the industry.


Have we lost it? Possibly, but we think there’s something to this…


The one place that they both have a remarkable impact on photography is in the rapidly changing business of Photojournalism.
