Photography is changing. Get used to it or get left behind. The smart phones and pads out sell DSLRs and are so much easier to use.

And are just this side of useless.

Seriously? LOL. You just said that? LOL. Get with the times, pal. Do a quick search on the huge variety of ways people are using iPads and other tablets, not only for recreational purposes, but also for work and enterprise purposes, too.

I meant the cameras are.

Unskilled photographers do well to use them.

You mean, they do better than when they use nothing at all. Barely.

Yeah, that's not an elitist, narrow-minded statement. LOL. You need to relax and have a more open mind. Just because someone chooses to do something differently than you doesn't mean that they are "barely...[doing] better than when they use nothing at all." People used to think that anyone using a phone to capture a photo was just producing pure rubbish, but today I see fantastic photos being produced by phones all the time...and by people who may have the eye for imagery but maybe not the technical knowledge to use a dedicated camera. That's fine, and that's great, because it means more people-- regardless of technical skill level-- can partake in photography.

I'm still waiting to see a decent picture taken with a tablet.  The examples of mobile photography in the articles on Connect are all garbage.
