>Modern Tools for Photographers, thumbs up or thumbs down?

>Check out this article from the New York Times about the current tools being used by photographers today…apparently the hipstamatic app for iphone is being used by professionals. Who would’ve thunk it? I have mixed feelings about these apps because there’s no doubt they can create some neat images, but I’m skeptical about them. Shooting with a phone just seems ass-backwards to me when it comes to being a professional, since image quality will never compare. Most who shoot photos with their iphones are not photographers at all; they are social networkers, myspacers, and youtubers. No matter how much the app might make them feel like talented professionals!

Anyway, read the article and let me know your thoughts.
