Biological_Viewfinder: We are at a turning point in photography history:

The truth is that technology is making leaps and bounds. We now have a smart phone with more MP than any consumer camera currently made. The truth is that smaller is better. And in the future children will grow up to mock us and our backpacks of camera gear, as if we were Bill Cosby walking to school in 3 feet of snow, uphill, both ways.

The truth is that it just no longer makes sense for the average consumer to go out and buy a dSLR. Once shutter-delay is resolved, there won't really be any reason at all for an average consumer to buy anything big and bulky, ever again.

Yes, Bill's way to school was hard. But that gave value to the process of obtaining knowledge.

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

These arguments are futile and a waste of time. For what I care you can shoot with a soap box after you drill a hole in it. I'll be shooting with my Canon 5D mark III or my Panasonic pocket cam if I feel like it. Or even my phone.
And I do not feel any need to justify my choices or bash other cameras, DSLR or otherwise.

mpgxsvcd: The GoPro doesn't need an LCD anymore. It has an app that does live view while recording.

Sdaniella, your comparisons don't make sense. You compare apples and oranges.

Too slow with the app though.

Sdaniella: here, more info:

this is meant to outdo/replace smartphonecams, for hd video or stills, which rarely handle ultra-wide angle that covers up-close 'whole body' self-shot perspectives without cropping head or lower body/legs.

so far, I've been avoiding upgrading to a smartphone because their cam FL are mostly longer than 24mm equivalent fov, and so never wide enough for my non-fisheye general photography needs. but fisheye fov expands on the wide option totally missing on smartphones unless one mounts aftermarket WA lenses for smartphones, and even fewer (none?) have swivel screens

What 2?

In reply to:

jcmarfilph: And the trend goes on... hiding mediocre IQ, blown highlights, blocked shadows by putting non-sense filters.

How about just using those filters creatively?

Who need talent when you have technology :)
(I don't mean than the photographer have no talent, but appart selecting the point of view for the camera, most of his work is to wait than the machines finish the work)

So why use your car if you can get to work by foot?

Could be something good for a wedding photog to sit down later and analyse your day. Maybe for some other professional.

makofoto: DxO still refuses to acknowledge GoPro ... the most popular camera in the world and capable of higher quality then these phone cameras?!

GoPro IS a high end compact camera.
