It's interesting when you say that because everyone I know, including the top notch photographers use their I-phones to capture images : ) I agree with you but...

I do know some colleges are adding mobile phone photography to their curriculum.

Hello, thanks for the joke, I think it is quite funny - I always enjoy everything you write. However, I must add that I have read two wonderful books on photography written by a Lee Frost, photographer I greatly admire: "The A-Z Creative Photography" and "50 Photo Projects". In both books he dedicated a chapter on photographs taken by mobile phones and the result of his work is wonderful. Hugely recommended - not only for those two chapters, of course. Ewapix

A 12 mp sensor in a phone is a LOT smaller than a 12mp sensor in a camera. There is NO way to get the same quality image from your phone, NOT including the difference in the optics

It seems that people love to stay stucked with preconceived ideas. There are some camera/phones with a 12 megapixel sensor. Seems to be quite good for a phone. Some cameras (real ones) don't have that capacity. Agree, megapixels are not everything, especially when it comes to sensor size.
PS and other programs are not good or bad. They are only tools and we, as photographers, must take them for just that. Who has never used a filter to help make a better picture.
The camera, the accessories, the programs, etc do not make pictures. The photographer does.
Let's all do what we really love to do. Cheers everybody.

The camera is a "tool". Like all tools can be used well or badly by the user. Whoever is intelligent can do good things even with limited tools and vice versa ....

LOL...I agree. However, Where do you SELL images you took with your phone?

I think he meant if your ONLY camera makes phone calls.....

I don`t believe in such things! The photography stays in the eye of the photographer not in the tools he is using. As much as a picture stays more natural (not modified with different programs like PS) I think the photographer is more genuine. The tool you use is not so much important, your brain is :)

That is a superficial statement.
Cameras do not take either good or bad photographs it is the person behind it with his heart and sensitivity who does the job.
