Re: Fenway Pics: My sons ipod is often better than my 5D

My wife has been carrying around an iPhone 5 since XMas - her first "smart phone" and one big impact is that she always has a phone with her, shoots a lot, and shares with friends on facebook (in the past, she'd get tired of waiting for me to download, tweak, email or put on a flash drive so she could upload ... by then, whatever she wanted to share was old news).  The image quality is amazing !  So long as you're looking at them on the device or on the web   I've downloaded some into Lightroom.  At 100% they're pretty bad.  Printed to modest sizes, they'd be ok, at least the technically better ones.  And she uses the software zoom feature, which results in really poor (cropped) images.  Seriously, I'm impressed with how good they are for a camera you always have with you.  But not in absolute terms, and definitely not in comparison with my DSLR (or my pocketable Sony RX100).
