That's not a question for "young" adults; I'm an old adult. My smartphone has not a very good camera (Samsung Galaxy S plus), so the phone is no alternative for a compact camera. Since I don't participate in social networks I don't need the smartphone-camera. My next smartphone will have a good lens so I think, in the future I don't need a compact-camera. I will always need my DSLR because I don't belive that the quality of the smartphone-cameras will ever reach the quality of a good DSLR. My opinion is: if you interested in serious photography you need a DSLR. For everyday-photography and the participation in social-networks a good smartphone-camera will do it.

I do not own a Canon, but this is - after reading the test - absolutely a standard lens for a DSLR. Pentax have a similiar lens but with a "quick-shift"-function: that means, you could adjust the distance durcing the AF-mode... that's pretty cool.

On Technique: Digital Photo Collages article (107 comments in total)

Interesting, really. But I find these pictures far to busy. Especially at the transitions between the original pictures. You don't know what to look at in the picture of the London bar or in the picture of the living room. I think they would be better, if there are transitions like some panorama apps are able to create...

Perhaps a bit more structure in the rules would be good for the not-knowing...

In reply to:

amicus70: I don't like the retro-design. It's a design of the 70s or 80s - and there it belongs. We are living in 2012. If you want to use a camera with a design like a box, use your old DSLRs... you will soon find out why the major producers no longer use this design for a camera. Modern cameras have a much better usability.

I can't remember me saying something negativ about the photographic qualities of this camera. No, I agree that this camera have a high quality. But holding this camera or looking at it... no. This camera-body has nothing to do in 2012.

Seems to be a man, since we share 96% of our genetic material with the gorillas (once I heard that on tv). O. k., you're in! Yes, and he looks like he wants to bite in your camera...

In reply to:

Reg Natarajan: This is exactly where cameras need to go. If I can carry a slightly larger phone and get this kind of quality, I'll do it in a minute. The best camera in the world is the one you have with you, and the worst in the world is the one you left on the shelf at home. I need Android for business, though, so I'm looking for Samsung and Sony to step up.

Yes, but I've read, that you could wait a long time for an android-mobile with such a cam...

That's a good app. But I think, you don't have to use it on every photo. It depends of what you want to say with the picture: like in the sample it's good to remove the other people because everyone could have a look on the second core of the picture: the art in the background. But I think this app is very unuseful when you take a picture of a crowded street. Nevertheless everyone have to decide for themselves, if he or she want to use this program.
