It's All in the Details: iPhone vs DSLR?

Macro shots of my violin, taken with my Nikon and my iPhone:

Violin Parts

Can you tell which were taken with the iPhone? I used the Olloclip macro lens, which I love. But it does require a good light and a steady hand. You have to get really close to the item to get it in focus. But talk about shallow DOF - something I didn't think I could get out of my iPhone....

Edited to add - the 2nd and 6th photos in the collection were taken with the iPhone - the others were taken with my D300.

These are great! Did you take all of them with your iPhone? Yes the DOF is really fantastic with a camera phone...

Haha.... LOVE LOVE this post! :) You're violin has so much character! ... can't wait to get a "real" cello... not a rental. But - hey - I'm grateful for what I have... you must be able to make some beautiful music out of that. I love the stringed instruments.

How timely this is! A friend & I were just discussing photographing with an iPhone vs. DSLR. So which were taken with which camera? Please tell because I can't! :)

While I don't deny the "power" of an iPhone (don't own one and probably never will), a camera is a camera, and a phone is a phone, so I think :) But I have to give it to the iPhone, the pics above are quite nice :)
