I was shooting my cousins wedding this weekend, and on 2 occasions while lining up to get shots, someone came up with their Iphone to also get a shot...they look over at me, (7d with grip, 24-70 with lens hood on), look back at their Iphone, and comment "I feel really inadequate right now"...all I could do was laugh...:D...but to have it happen twice in the day....oh, on both occasions the Iphone holders were guys...so you get a better mental picture..

Anybody else get those comments lately...

LOL!!
I usually don´t take it so well. I just hate when I´m framing a shot and someone with an iPhone jumps between me and the subject trying to get my shot and says something like:

"Don´t worry! Don´t worry! This will take just a second!"

Oh, boy.. and don´t even get me started on people shooting in the middle of the reception with an iPad! :D


Photography is about GEAR and not talent or practice. Practice won't make you a better photographer. Expensive equipment will. =D

I have the same set up as you and my nephew commented at a family gathering that I wasted my $ on my overpriced gear when I could have just bought an iPhone. I told him ok lets make a bet, Come with me to my next dance recital shoot and if you can capture the same qualtiy images as me with that iPhone Ill give you my camera, if you cant I get your iphone!...He declined. About a week later he posted on FB how he bought a $2000 guitar (he plays in a band) I responded by asking him why he wasted his money on a guitar when there is a guitar app for his iPhone?

Classic!

To the OP, I have been known to bring my 1Dx+24-70 or 70-200 with a Rode Mic all on the tall tripod to film kids concerts and such. I get similar comments (and lots of requests for copies of video and images.)

At the last show I did a quick pan of all of the iPhone/iPad folks getting crappy shots in the bad lighting. I don't think anyone watched their kids until they got home later.

At least they werent rude about trying to get shots, they asked first and were patient
