Tonkotsu Ramen: " But it feels good, and I even noticed some of the folks on our tour putting big digital cameras aside once in a while and pulling out their cell phones when they just wanted to make a nice picture."

That statement doesn't make sense unless the shots were limited by the physical size of the camera (if you needed to stick your phone through a wall or put it at an angle the DSLR is not capable of due to size).

In any other case, the camera would be able to take a better pic.

If I have my DSLR with me, the only time i'd use my phone to take a pic is if i needed to upload the pic that very moment.

The article seems like it was written by a person that has not touched a smartphone in years. I wonder if he knows that they've been able to take decent pics for years.

It's interesting because we have people on the forums getting into photography because they're hitting the limits of their smartphones. Then we have these old people that have never touched a smartphone saying it's "enough"

I get your point but racist may be the wrong term there, just saying.

So much better UI. I personally think sharing images and discussing them is one of the best ways to learn for everybody. I like that Dpreview keeps trying to perfect the system, shows that they are invested and care about the community.

Lavs12: So, Canon beefs up the rebel, doesn't update the 60D/7D higher/highest end crops and puts out 3 new FF. Oh, and started what will probably be some kind of 3 tier Mirror-less line, starting with entry level model, of course. The powershots just coming out look really nice, too. By seriously boosting L lineup recently, the incentive to go FF Canon has probably never been higher as they have pressed their advantage. Canon definitely knows this and is trying to create a direct pipeline to FF- L- lense nirvana for themselves. Think about the customer base they are trying to hook..... People who probably never took pictures before their phone could take some that that made them think, hmm this is fun. Right now strategy is camera phone-powershot/rebel-6D- L lense goodness(in bed forever=) then they can sell you whatever body they want that makes them the best sales demographics across the board which best maximizes profit margin.

There will definitely be an upgrade to the flagship Aps-c line. I think Canon is seeing how many people they can get to skip that step at the moment. I shoot a 60D and love my 10-22 and 17-55. I think I am in the same spot as a lot of people now, what to do?
