I HATE the instagram type photos! I work in a photo lab and when those type of shots come through I don't know if I'm suppose to leave them as is or try and "fix" the coloring.:lol: As for people using their phones or disposable cameras at a graduation or some such... I just feel very badly that their pictures will NOT turn out. I do the best I can to lighten them up enough so they can see the graduates all the way up front. Sadly they don't realize that the flash on their phones or disposables just don't reach that far! ugghhh:confused:

Hey! It worked for Marge Nelson [Teri Garr] in "Mom and Dad Save the World"!

Segways are COOL. I was a phone shooter until I got my DSLR late last year. I never relied on it to get the perfect photo, but it at least got something when I tried to get the shot. But I never expected it to get a photo from the back of a dark auditorium either.
I still kind it funny to see some people trying to get photos that I KNOW are not going to turn out. But to each their own. I just chuckle inside and move to the side to get my shot with my camera.

LOL. I did not say they were cool LOOKING. But I did the chance to do a tour on one in Minneapolis and honestly, they were pretty cool for a guy like me with back issues. It let us do a route that I NEVER would have been able to walk and see a lot more of the city than I would have gotten to see on foot. :lol:

Amen!

It's kinda like senior tricycles. They don't do squat for looks, but it you are old and unsteady on your feet, they're great! And definitely cooler than hobbling around on a cane. Besides, they'll carry the groceries home.

Drooling techno-zombies that are more concerned with the brand than actual function.

Yeah, because Apple is terrible at function:rolleyes:

I guess this situation works both ways. I went to my sister's graduation today and brought my 7D and 70-200. In the row behind my family there were a group of four or five rather obnoxiously loud people and one of them must have saw my camera because he commented to his friends that I'm a moron for wasting my money on a "professional camera" when there are phones that do the job just fine. Okay then, whatever floats your boat I guess.

Sony and Fuji (and probably others) have released slim cameras with a pretty decent zoom range that use a periscopic, fully internal zoom lens.

[cut images]

That camera is not much bigger than a phone. I have no idea why they won't implement something similar in an Android or even WindowsRT based device.

Money. I didn't look into the cost of those, but my guess is that if included on a phone, the price could easily exceed $1000. Right now, I don't think there are many people who would drop that much on a phone. Though I believe current generation smart phones are around $800 right now (outright cost, not including any deals associated with plan discounts), so I could be wrong on that. However, I don't think there is a mass demand for optical zoom cameras on phones. Why add something like that when it will cost more to manufacture, drive up the price, and therefore push away potential sales.

It's not a high horse, it's called being a human being. Instead of laughing at someone else, why not just offer help? That's being on your high horse? Also, we get at least two of these threads a week where people recount how they laughed or snickered at someone else with less-than-capable equipment in a tough situation. It gets old. We get it, these morons had the little phone cameras, hilarious. You want us all to come in here and slap you on the back and agree with you, 'what a bunch of idiots these parents were.' And when someone doesn't, they're on their high horse. I'm sad for this world if we've come to the point where being nice and offering help is somehow in the wrong

I totally agree. The sneering derision aimed at mobile phone camera/cheap camera users on photography forums is so tediously predictable. While I find the sea of blue screens at concerts mildly annoying, let them have their video or photos if that's what they want. They're not trying to capture pin sharp footage, they're just trying to capture the moment, because it means something to them.

I was at a concert last year, and the woman next to me was struggling to get her compact camera set up before the band came on, so I turned to her and explained that I could help her, so she passed her camera to me, and I set up the shutter speed, ISO and aperture for her to get the best possible shots, and quickly explained how to adjust them. Why sneer when you can just be kind?

Not to mention the self-superior sneering derision on this board aimed at those who just find using phone / tablet cameras in these ways just humorous.

Besides, compact cameras do have some capability to be adjusted. From the ads, apparently iPhones are capable of taking breath-taking landscapes while the "photographer" is running. Magic machine, that iPhone.

I would normally wait for a false advertising lawsuit in case like this, but Apple has such serious fan boys/girls they would never consider anything that Apple does to be a problem, even at twice the price and half the capability. (Before people get on me about this, my kids have IPhones and I have nothing against Apple personally since they have a pretty good thing going.)

The Battle for the cellphone throne! Samsung vs. IPhone :D who will win this is the question?

Who cares really?
I know I don't, it is just a tool not a way of living nor a necessity!

Go grind that axe of yours somewhere else. You might also want to find a dictionary and look up the words sneering and derision.
