Back in 2004-2006 most of the cameras our photographers used were worse (in terms of image quality) than most of the phone cameras available now.
DSLRs are not going to be replaced soon, we're just trying to be open to this new smartphone and image taking/sharing era.
Also, as you should know or realize, a good photograph is not about noise and technical quality. Do you remember film and analog cameras? :)

Well this should be interesting. Now I have to figure out how to get my images off the phone and online. Things are always difficult here in the Sandbox!

I remember that I tried to upload a couple of times some pictures made with my cell phone, but they were rejected with an simple objection :) I think it`s a good thing that DT is doing this. Good job!

It's very likely that the AR will be very low for users who shoot only mobile and never used a camera before. They might see better results in Editorial though.

Don't see this as a transition to mobile-only but as an addition to the database. The acceptance rules don't change much following this announcement, we just made it more obvious now.

on November 22nd 1963 Mary Moorman shot one of the most famous photos ever, with a Polaroid, a split second after President Kennedy was shot.

Always amazes me when "established" creative people express objections and dismay over the inclusion of other creative people's creative works as if to say; "but that guy's paint, brushes and easel's aren't of the same quality as mine". Or "that guy's guitar isn't as expensive as the one I paid for". I guess indie music shouldn't be sold in the same stores as famous artists since they're not with record labels and NetFlix should only rent hollywood produced movies... If you're nervous about the coming competition step up your game or move on. Simple. I applaud Dreamstime's decision.

Ok, I'll make sure to practice taking photos of fleeting water beings with my phone :P

But seriously, it's a good move - I don't see how this will take away from established DSLR photographers.

My phone has only 2 MP resolution so I must buy a new one to compete on this new market. Or I must use my DSLR like a phone. I believe will be hard to keep it with only two fingers. :)

Huh? I thought with microstock sites it was supposed to be all about noise and technical quality.

I think we would all agree that a 'good photograph' is not about noise or technical quality, but getting them accepted certainly is, or has been, as much on the technical side as the creative :)

Interesting assignment , i already submit few ones but i have to tell that i disagree in one thing. Put mobile photos competing to camera photos..... Is clear that 95% submissions will be made with camera. I submit mines taken today with my phone, i will submit a few more probably with my camera.....But a camera gives more flexibility and i think was much more interesting see everything made with phone or perhaps DT can put a mark in those that are really made with a phone.

Congratulations to Dt , always making something new.

Interesting. I am assuming that these images will still be reviewed for decent technical quality. I am curious to see what mobile phone images will be accepted. My guess is going to be from the pricier end of the camera-phone spectrum.

I have a question, though. If DT starts accepting images taken from mobile phones (which I assume would include Kindle, iPad, etc that would take a pic that is not a DSLR), could we send the taken image(s) straight to DT from that device?

what's the point? if somebody work for dreamstime or other agency should have camera with him to catch the moment...there are already tons of camera as little as an iphone, i mean a sony rx100 or a olympus epm1 can be taken always with somebody. Why acepting mobile photos? there is flickr for those photos, instagram.

the problem is that many take microstock seriosuly as a way to erarn money. so invest money and time, the time of hobbyist microstockert should be finished, or as yuri arcurs said the microstock in the long is just for hobbyist. including mobile photos, more and more hobbyist less and less professional. microstock is not consolidating after 5 6 years.
