Re: Here's the niche for DSLRs

I'm an editor for a nonprofit and I need photos all the time. Volunteers send in photos for the newsletter and we just can't use them -- because they're low-res shots from smartphones. They might be nicely composed, but they're not high enough IQ to reproduce well in print. Facebook or web, maybe, but not print.

That's where the niche for DSLRs still is: Print-quality photos for glossy magazines and newsletters, not snapshots for the internet or for facebook.

I'm sure before long smartphones will be able to do it all and then my worries will be over. In the meantime, I wish I could put a DSLR or MILC in the hands of every single volunteer. Then maybe I'd get plenty usable photos for the newsletter, and I could put out one, just one, issue with all high-quality images. Sigh. . .

I doubt that very much. IMHO, it is the photographer taking the images that makes them usable, or unusable; not the gear ...

BTW the images below are all taken with 5MPx phone cameras, and all will print sharp at A4 size.
