As long as you view small

Our son-in-law is an Apple guru with both an iPhone and a Nikon DSLR so he shoots with both. His iPhone does a beautiful job with little technical consideration required, coming off with images that look great on the small viewer. Take them home and put them on a 27 inch monitor however, and it's a different story. The images tend to fall apart much sooner than work from the larger sensor. For me, it's all in the final viewing. If Web use or social sites are one's only ends, the phones seem to be closing the gap. I for one, like to hang a nice print on the wall or make a book with full spread photos. I would never consider doing that from a current phone camera.
