At this point I'm really starting to wonder whether the limited device is not the big pro SLR. It is getting so you almost need a license over here to carry one around in public.
I had major issues here in Paris with any type of indoor photography, be it with an SLR or with my Leica, until I finally switched to an iPhone, and now nobody dares to object, because capturing cellphone souvenirs has almost become a human right!
My point is if anyone spends the cash for a camera that costs more than a Point and Shoot casio, they probably have aspirations of shooting something better than a cell phone photo, or capturing that one weird news event that ends up on cops.
I assume they want to improve their talents and end result.
I'm not against a cell phone that shoots well, I just find it non interesting. Just because I have a device in my pocket that "can" take a photo doesn't mean that's the process of making a photograph.
