DioCanon: as simple as that:
there is not control whatsoever, no DOF control, no targeted dodging and burning...
just press and even a monkey can be a photographer, the camera will do the rest...
wow...

Gentlemen,
Can't we agree that
- the eye is the most important tool of photography
- a simple camera (like the one found in mobiles) can convey a good image when just simple means are needed to capture it
- a simple camera will fall short of a more advanced one when conditions are more demanding
- even if an image from a technical point of view is somewhat lacking, its content may still be of good value - and could be even better with better photographic tools and corresponding user competence

This is just one more depressing example of how journalist currently think it is important to act as an uncritical promotor for one of the gadgets producers of the world. Initially this way of acting appearantly was much connected with a need to show their coolness/trendyness. However, today, it just seems to have become an old habit of hitting the "i" key first when writing about gadgets.

Yes, mobile phones impact on photography because of their ubiquity and their connectivness.

Next, please! (yawn....)
