Cult of Mac is a web site that no self respecting photographer, beginner or otherwise, should pay any attention to. It is rife with poorly written and thought out articles that would get a failing mark in Grade 6 English. This quote is a perfect example:
it’s not simply a matter of megapixels, but about the other “value added” touches that truly make the iPhone a camera worth hanging up your SLR for.
Hint – people who say this are morons.
The iPhone is a great camera – FOR A PHONE. If you want to take great pictures, you certainly can with an iPhone. But I can take great(er) pictures in more situations and conditions with a DSLR than I can with any cameraphone.
