On using a cellphone as a camera, another perspective

My last post argued that Instagram can be legitimate art, capturing real images and creating beautiful collections of pictures.

In this post, we play devil’s advocate and argue that phone cameras are crap. I take that back, Olympus argues that and there are quite a few people upset by their new anti-cellphone-camera campaign.
I spoke to someone today who mentioned that they saw a hilarious ad in New York saying something of the like, “If it makes calls, it’s not a camera.”

I’m sorry if that was someone in this class, I really don’t remember.

However, I did do a little search and discovered a few more gems:

Camera with a phone?

So, do phone camera photographs count as legitimate photographs?
