    it's not a camera, it's a phone.

    would you get a surgery by someone using a kitchen knife? it cuts flesh, just like the scalpel does. what's the big difference?

    These people are playing, not working in an area critical to someone else's health. Art is, in a sense, play.

    Ok, perhaps the example was a bit extreme, what I'm saying is that there's a tool for every job. Mimicking the tool won't get it done better. If at all.

    This is a great thread!!! Lotsa fun for sure.... I have a friend who uses her iPhone extensively and she has this nifty little set of lenses that attach *magnetically* on the back of her phone. She also is a Nikon aficiondo so the phone isn't a replacement per se - more like an enhancement.

    Within reason, whatever it takes to get images that are valuable (in one way or another) to the taker is a plus.

    Toting around a big tele and tripod for an iPhone makes no sense...bring a body too.
    On the other hand....the ones that just snap on and will fit in a pocket or purse are a good thing IMHO as the truth was posted above, the best camera is the one you have with you.

    If I'm going out to shoot pictures I will have film and decent optics, usually German, and generally a proper tripod.
    When I'm at work or running down to the shops or out on the bike then I don't have a bag of my good expensive cameras with me but I always have my iPhone and there is a compact pocket digi that always leaves the house with me because it fits my shirt pocket and I hardly notice it's there. Also because I am yet to find a Hapyucc and a source of 16mm film....
    Some of my best photos were taken on the pocket digi simply because it was in my pocket when an unmissable shot popped up when I was at work or on the way to the supermarket and even when I've been out with real cameras there have been fleeting images that would be gone before i could get a film camera out of the bag, but in 5 seconds the pocket cam is in my hand and fully powered up for a quick shot.
    To get a good photo first you have to get A photo in the first place...
    There is no doubt though that given the choice I will take a photo through Zeiss Ikon, Schneider, Hexanon or Fujinon optics on some lovely film....
