My son falls into that "opposing thought" group.  He has some older; but quite decent cameras I gave him.  He's also an engineer and he and his wife are both iphone users.  So when they went to Ireland they took their iphones and an SD850IS.  The bigger stuff stayed home.  The majority of their shots were taken with their phones, and only a few with the camera.  I've seen their shots, and it's very hard to tell which were taken with the camera.  A few were obvious because of the 140 mm equivalent focal length on the SD850IS; but at wider angles the quality was equal.

Of my three children and their three spouses, and five grand children, only my oldest daughter has any serious interest in photography, and even she uses her phone at times.
