DP Connect. Does it belong on a different site?
Feb 9, 2013

Since DSLR's are now standard with ISO's, DR, and IQ we once thought impossible, it seems camera junkies are running out of things to talk about.

Out of boredom, these camera junkies go over to DP connect topics in an effort to call all mobile phone pictures "crap".

This takes away any usefulness of the connect forum. Anyone who finds the froum out of an interest in mobile photography gets to read the biased apples to oranges comparison.

Common sense dictates that a camera small enough to fit in a phone will not be as good as one that would fit in a brick.

Maybe if the site were stand-alone and not directly linked to dpreview, it would recieve less negativity.

It reminds me of MF shooters calling 35mm and smaller formats "crap". Now it seems like the common posture is "Smaller sensors are crap. Unless of course your camera sensor is bigger than mine... Then I need it for the reach".
