That is, you have to ask the right question, and LL has asked the wrong question. If you ask "Can you take great photographs with small sensor cameras / phone cameras?" the answer is "yes". But if you ask "Are there great photographs you cannot take with a small sensor camera / phone camera?" the answer is also "yes". And you use a large sensor camera / SLR because you want to take all the great photographs, not just some of them.

I think it is fair to say that many people out there believes that their belowed Foveon/MFDB/whatever camera ALWAYS takes more eye-popping, fantacredilicious images than lowly compact cameras.
