  1. These cameras(M10 and M3) have APS-C sized sensors. Typically 5-10 times larger surface area then smartphones and pns, better dynamic range, low light performance and great color rendering. Plus 18-24 MP means you can easily print large photos of upto A3 paper size without having to worry about pixelation. Plus interchangeable lens cameras offer you ability to shoot various subjects and photography styles. You can do super macro, great landscapes, portraits with stunning background blur(selective subject isolation next to impossible to achieve with any phone camera), astrophotography, long exposure tricks plus a whole lot when it comes to videos. There is much greater control over what and how you shoot. There is much larger room for improvement in post processing. Dont forget photography was always a (relatively) costly hobby and it still is today. Its not the camera body itself its the whole lens ecosystem which matters. Cost of maintaining a lens system far exceeds a typical smartphone. I do agree that due to the advent of samrtphones people are not inclined to using cameras. Trust me once you start shooting with decent dslr and a fast prime, you wont ever touch your smartphone camera be it even iphone or pureview or anyother smartphone.

  2. Who the hell are buying cameras now is a million dollar question. There are mobiles that can take stunning pictures and 4k videos.
