I don't understand people who are so vehemently pro iPhone. Perhaps they enjoy living in a fantasy world where the details are all filled in by a computer program. Now, don't get me wrong, the iPhone is a fine once in awhile camera but I would actually appreciate it more if it had less of the digital BS in it. I guess that is something we'll never get because of the opinions of all the "experts" on this god awful planet. Lets just pray to the lord Jesus that Canon does not head down this route too far and we continue to get real photographic equipment and not pseudo reality BS.

Humans operate on narratives that they tell themselves about the world and their place in it. We have an ongoing story in our head, and we are the star. Making compromises or acknowledging the truth about our standards can be very unpleasant because then it's almost like we're not living our best life or just making the best, most admirable decisions.

So when a device like a smartphone comes along that is with us always and is so incredibly useful and is also incredibly expensive, it's easy to tell ourselves a story about that device that is....not a lie necessarily, but an exaggeration. So rather than admitting to ourselves that we really don't care about flexibility, detail, carrying around a bulky item, learning about a complex process like photography, and all of the other inconveniences that a hobby like photography entails, we instead tell ourselves that this tool is perfectly in line with our desires.

So while some people truly are satisfied with phone photography and freely admit they aren't terribly concerned with the technicalities of photography, others choose to lower their standards and come up with justifications for it.

Something like RX100 would be infinitely better for most people
