I am yet to see an image from any smartphone that challenges the crappiest jpeg from any of my cameras except the 220HS - and I am surrounded by different handsets.

Yes, yes, portability. Yes, yes, some 'evocative' images are being made.

Friends of mine, who are amateur photogs with DSLR's, are using their smartphones now to upload snapshots to Facebook. I don't get it. They think it is artsy and convenient. I think, what a waste because the quality could be much better with their DSLR.

I recently posted a comparison of images from a Canon ELPH 330 HS and Galaxy Note 3. The difference is huge, and not in favour of the phablet. OTOH, the P&S market is still getting wiped by the smartphones and etc.

I think an appropriate comparison is an image taken by a smartphone vs no image taken because the person didn't have a camera with them.

You're right, of course, but it's absolutely a quantity v. quality thing going on. And, you know which one just about always wins . . .

I'm more likely to have a camera than my GN3. Usually, it's both, or more...

I ought to check out the latest point and shoots, might be worth carrying instead of relying on my iPhone. My 5D Mk II and 24-105mm are light years better than my phone, but they don't fit in my pocket.

The vast majority of the public are visually illiterate and couldn't tell the difference between
a good image and a bad one. Convenience and conectitivity with social media are their top pr
iorities.

What gets to me is when they don't use fill flash outdoors and their faces are very dark. Well, everyone is a photographer I guess.

I don't agree.

I do agree.

I think you'll find that most people are quite capable of identifying good images, when they're looking for something to hang on their walls. Otherwise, it doesn't matter so much.

Good vs. bad images will always be subjective. A good image to me is one that I capture a moment that tells a story, brings a smile to your face, or brings back memories. Who cares where the image came from? If you're doing a photo shoot, obviously you want gear you can control the situation better with.

I am not interested in smartphones for photography. I like quality photographs and good lenses that don't flare. Primes are what I like. If it is worth it to take a photograph, then I attempt to make it a good one.
