Tonkotsu Ramen: " But it feels good, and I even noticed some of the folks on our tour putting big digital cameras aside once in a while and pulling out their cell phones when they just wanted to make a nice picture."

That statement doesn't make sense unless the shots were limited by the physical size of the camera (if you needed to stick your phone through a wall or put it at an angle the DSLR is not capable of due to size).

In any other case, the camera would be able to take a better pic.

If I have my DSLR with me, the only time i'd use my phone to take a pic is if i needed to upload the pic that very moment.

The article seems like it was written by a person that has not touched a smartphone in years. I wonder if he knows that they've been able to take decent pics for years.

It's interesting because we have people on the forums getting into photography because they're hitting the limits of their smartphones. Then we have these old people that have never touched a smartphone saying it's "enough"

Thank you BRPWS! I am 68 and right there with you on this!

Greg Van Deusen: I've sometimes wondered why cameras aren't made with round sensors to capture the full [round] lens image. It would give you more image area to crop from.

Good idea, could a camera have a round filter for the sensor?

jcmarfilph: If it is just plain OS-crap updates and not hardware for camera such as big sensor( not a hair-size update from previous one), OIS, optical zoom and ergonomics then it is still not a decent device for photography.

Right on! New interface, same old s--t.

Does the dude with the Bud have a shiner or is that some kind of shadow?

photo_rb: Come on! A Nikon F4? Let's go back a bit. How many recall the Miranda Sensorex? Now that was a great entry level camera...or the Pentax Spotmatic?

I still have my Miranda Sensorex.

nathantw: I must not be as old as I thought because I have no idea what #11 is.

It was a preservative for early polaroid BW prints.

It is a coating for polaroid prints.

alegator: I love buying new and better gear, but I have a very strict rule: I never, NEVER buy new gear without selling my old gear.

Great idea! I've been giving this old stuff away.

Lcky: In the 32nd Image in the Boston.com article, Charlie Haughey has a minolta with a wrapped tele, any ideas why he would wrap the lens like that?

That is called "field expedience" or how to repair something in the field.

threed123: Spent a year there as a USAF officer ground controller. Took lot of pics with my Nikormat. Have great memories living in a hootch. It was either join the Airforce or get drafted after college, and in those days they were drafting marines as well-life expectancy was 30 days--no thanks. All us guys were just trying to stay alive and get back home. And today, I put my digital camera into a nice camera bag that I bought about 5 years ago at the local camera store--and inside was a tag: Made in Vietnam--so all is good lol. And the island, Hon Tre off Nha Trang mainland, I spent most of my time on is now one of the best resorts in Vietnam. Google it and look at the images--cracks me up.

Make sure your sons and daughters take a good pocketable camera over to North Korea--it will be their next stop, and possibly they can get a nice shot of a mushroom cloud. Sorry to be cynical, but the world continues to be both a dangerous and beautiful place.

WELCOME HOME SIR!

IrishhAndy: A real photographer would have defaulted on the bills.

Great pic, but he must not have sold all of his gear.

neo_nights: One more comment for the naysayers: have you seen the FIRST picture that he took? How bland it was, even though he was at a beautiful place?

Also, let's not forget: once you live at a certain place, everything looks trivial TO YOU. But to others, it may seem very cool and different.

Ok, it may be a bit harder (perhaps even more dangerous) getting nice shots at a suburban place. But it is doable. And the same rule "get to know your own place" still apply. I wish I had the discipline to do that exercise. It'd surely pay off, even in my urban "uninteresting" surroundings.

Well said neo........and thank you Mr. Krieger.
