Re: I don't see this as a problem.
>> I've never used either camera on a phone. I own proper cameras that take proper photos (I'm kinda photonerdist, you see).
Your photo-snobbery is preventing you from using a valuable tool that has many more uses than simply "taking pretty pictures."
Let's see, when I park my car in a parking garage and need to remember where it is, I can take a picture of the nearby "Floor 5 Row J" sign much faster than I can type it in in my "notes" app. When I rent a car, it only takes a minute to take pictures of any damage (and the milage) before driving it off the lot... are you going to bother to get out your awkward "proper" camera to do the same? I can use my phone to take pictures of receipts or business cards that I want to throw away but *might* end up being important later. If I see anything that I want to follow up on in the real world (like a billboard, shop, interesting magazine article, poster for a movie, etc. etc. etc.) then I can take a picture of it in about ~4 seconds with my phone vs. >> 4 seconds to type a note to myself.
So go ahead and keep taking pictures of sunsets and fruit and stuff with your proper camera while I use my camera phone to make my life easier several times per day.
