    This. While cell phones and point and shoot cameras get better all the time, so do professional grade DSLRs. There is no comparison whatsoever, but that doesn't mean that the average person needs one. Cell phone cameras today are great *for what they are*, and may be plenty for folks simply documenting life's adventures. For other folks, a P&S camera might fit the bill and provide what they need. When image quality is critical, a good quality DSLR is the bare minimum, and some would even say a good medium format is needed. Comes down to what you need, but when the image quality provided by something like a D800 is necessary, there simply isn't anything less that would do. Whether you need that kind of quality or not is another matter, but there aren't any cellphones or P&S cameras that can even come close a newer FF DSLR...

    Exactly!
    Thing is most people don't NEED a FF DSLR. I'm sure that the % of the people that buy a consumer grade DSLR will continue to decline as many of the people that bought those in the past will find a phone camera to be satisfactory.

    If the resulting captured image is the only criteria for one's approach to arriving there, then all bets are off IMO.
    But the pleasure one has in getting there is another sensibility is it not? The physical manipulation & tactile sensations & response of the equipment to some of us is huge!
    I like the analogy of the sound processing of my bass guitar in overdub recording. In today's recording world, digital processing has become outstanding & the preferred approach. Top grade analogue processing on the other hand is expensive, & "labour intensive". BUT, the satisfaction is beyond comparison.
    If you want the best time keeping, go quartz.
