When time and funding permit, each flower (each plant species) will have its own page, and its own PDF, and eventually its own PPT so that professors and students have plenty of material on Guatemala (and Honduras, etc) to study.

Which smartphone camera is best? Apple iPhone Xs, Google Pixel 3 XL, Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Apple iPhone Xs, Google Pixel 3XL, Huawei Mate 20 Pro camera comparison at FLAAR's office

We have Nikon D5 and Canon EOS 1DX Mark II full-frame digital cameras plus an entire truck full of lenses and tripods for field work at Parque Nacional Yaxha Nakum Naranjo. But when you are hiking through the rain forests it is a lot more practical to use the camera on your cell phone to do quick photography.

We have selected the three smartphones which have a solid reputation for their camera quality:

  • Apple iPhone Xs,
  • Google Pixel 3 XL,
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro camera

Huawei Mate 20 Pro, smartphone camera, now available to test and review

We did a test of the Apple Phone Xs vs Google Pixel 3 XL, now we have the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. So we took all three cameras out to the FLAAR Mayan Ethnobotanical Research Garden and photographed a cacao pod and a tiny cacao flower. Some cell phone cameras are good at macro, but others are not. If you want to do a professional macro photograph of a flower of Theobroma cacao, naturally it is best to use a tripod and a macro lens. But we did handheld since that is today’s real world reality. But if you are a botanist studying cacao, a Nikon, Canon, or Sony with a 1:1 macro lens on a tripod is best (especially if you know how to do stacked focus).

In the future we would like to test a Sony full-frame mirrorless camera

As soon as a Sony full-frame mirrorless camera is available, we would like to do additional tests. When you are hiking the steep hills, the muddy swamps, or simply the hours through forests and across savannas (in the rain forest area of Peten, Guatemala), it helps to have a lightweight camera so you can snap a photo before the monkey swings out of view, or before the jaguar leaps behind a tree.
