Who cares what non-enthsiasts use? I'm here because I am an enthusiast. I'm also into high end audio. Do you think I care that most people listen to MP3s on the crummy ear buds that came with their phones? Do you think those will kill off high end audio gear for enthusiasts? I'm also into astronomy. Do you think I care that most people never even look at the night sky with their eyes much less own a telescope? Do you think that kills telescopes for enthusiasts?

you say, 'who cares', but i you always get very defensive in threads that mention the explosion of smartphone use, and the stagnation of dslr sales.

if you really don't care, why do you keep posting in thread about cell phones?

Because this site is not about those who don't care about photography! Take the cell phone garbage to facebook or connect or something at least until they because more than bottom-end compact competitors.

It is beyond arrogant for you to be the judge about who does and does not care about photography based on their technology choices.  That's a ridiculous statement.

Whether you happen to like it or not, the reality is that the camera technology is changing rapidly in all market segments, including cell phones. If you want to stick your head in the sand, go head.  Seems to me  "Open Talk" is a perfectly reasonable place to be talking about the impact of these things in a serious way.

Imho, there's a lot camera makers can and have learned from the Apple, Samsung, Nokia, and the rest.
