No, the alternative is to use the proper tool for the job, and a large tablet is NOT the right tool.

I have seen people using their large tablets (presumably ipads) to take photos in restaurants.  In most cases it appears to be nothing less than showing off... 'ohhh, look what I have'.

I live in Bangkok, where flaunting it is the norm among Thais.  I can guarantee you that every Thai I saw using their tablet to take a photo also had a phone with them.
