    One Reason you can ditch your Digital SLR (DSLR) for an iPhone

    I own a nice big DSLR. Frankly, I love it. But there are many situations that it's either too big to carry or I just don't have it with me.

    In comes the iPhone. There are several neat add-ons that you can purchase for the iPhone to make it a superbly capable camera.

    One of the programs I love is: Pano. Pano is an award-winning app that lets you take beautiful, seamless panoramic photos straight from your phone, no other software necessary. Selected by Apple as one of the "Best Apps of 2009", Pano has gotten rave reviews from tens of thousands of users around the world.

    Pano gives a transparent overlay of the previous photo to line things up, and you can take up to 16 pictures for stitching. The finished image can be as big as 6800 pixels wide. Pano costs $3.

    I'll post a panorama shot that I took with my iPhone this week.

    In my humble opinion the iphone is only good for grab shots but hey! you could do them with any camera.

    Here is a panorama shot of Lake Coeur d'Alene.

    I'd rather have grab shots than no photos at all!

    Sometimes I feel like a geek when I use my old-fashioned digital compact camera with loads of features I never use.

    If I want quality shots I use my Nikon D7000. If I'm traveling I carry my Leica V-LUX 20. Cell phone are not to be taken seriously as cameras. IMHO

    D7000

    It's a question of what fits into your normal daywear pockets, Bob. If I'm in my suit I'd still prefer the option of taking a photo.

    You know, when it comes right down to it the fact is that I don't care what other people use for taking photos. I also don't care what brand of camera they buy or what car/truck they own. For me, photography is a serious hobby that allows me to be creative. A DSLR is the best tool to that end, for me. I'm retired. I don't wear suits or carry a briefcase. I drive a SmartForTwo Pure and ride a 72mpg Piaggio BV250 scooter because those vehicles give me the best performance for the buck. You don't need my blessing to shoot with a cell phone, many people I know do. Go for it!

    We've been in a transition period for twenty years. A few high-end phones now produce as good an image quality as early high-end dedicated digital cameras used to but, as you say, there's a big gap still. The question is whether the man in the street, as opposed to the specialist, currently benefits from having a dedicated camera if he already has a high-end phone and, on balance, I doubt whether he does. To make a reasoned discussion we'd have to take two devices and compare feature by feature - I'm quite happy to do that if you're interested.
