Re: Grim future for the camera makers?

I think images posted on social networking sites like FB reflect current trends. I have tons of friends and friends of friends who post images of their dinner, pics of friends, pics of places they are at right now... Many of the images are technically very poor. But the normal users of that kind of media really don't care at all about what we call IQ, and they often don't seem to care much about basic things like exposure, much less composition. People may appreciate a really nice photo, but most folks don't really care very much about making them. It's mostly about documenting where they are and where they've been and sharing that with the friends. In that roll, cell phones largely make compact cameras superflous and just one more thing to buy and carry.
