Re: Hmmmm.... S100 or iPhone 4S?

I think that many are missing the point of the whole question. It in't how "good" the picture of the 4S vs the S100, it is the image you take.

In my opinion, and also stated by others, there is a fundamental shift in photography. Just like from B&W to color, then film to digital, now we're seeing the camera in a totally different light -- as an always-with-you communications tool. And the iPhone does this better than the S95.

Note that I'm not saying that the iPhone will take better images than the DSLR, or even the S95, there will remain a place for high end cameras. But for daily use the photography field is shifting-- again.

Further, I would guess there are more Facebook users than there are DSLR owners. And the new smartphones address this user better than compacts or DSLRs.
