Beside adequate performance from 'pinhead' sensors, there's also something to be said for lugging only about a 1/4 kg instead of 3/4 kg or more, as well as easier deployment, or convenience for carrying in the palm of a hand, ready for every opportunity

A camera like any other 'tool', use the correct tool for the job.                                    Hence why I have pocketables S110, SZ50, DSLR's and FF DLSR. ;-).                                Also depends on one's IQ wanted/ needed for pictures use/ application.

Very true, Jon. But this forum is highlighting 'Pinhead' sensor cameras' advantages, not their alternatives. I was only pointing out one of the externalities associated with larger cameras which are not so difficult for most 'pinhead' sensor models.

If the vast majority of photographers were not satisfied with the products of pinhead sensors they wouldn't be using their phone cameras, confirming Chesterton's aphorism that "if a job's worth doing, it's worth doing badly" - and the traditional camera manufacturers' production wouldn't have declined in recent years.
