    Since many have gone to the latest IPads and Iphones, has photography
    also moved on to those devices?

    Close-up pictures, I can see, but can't seem to think faraway photos
    would benefit from an IPad/IPhone device.

    Am I wrong? Have any of you photographers gone to using them for
    photography?

    Are the photos really good? I imagine the quality is great, but I'm
    still hung up on zooming for pictures and I don't think they can do
    that!

    Or can they?

    Are there gadgets to hook up somehow to be able to zoom in, say if one
    were using an IPhone? If so, what's the gadget?? Thanks!!

    Cell phone and tablet cameras are toys. Quality is not very good due
    to low contrast and poor performance in low light. You can only get so
    much out of a tiny sensor and simple lens. However, having a cell
    phone camera is better than no camera.

    Absolutely right!

    Well, we already have. It's an ongoing process. When, in 2002, I borrowed our
    departmental digital camera to take pictures of my newborn granddaughter, it
    was, I believe, 2Mp. And I think we had paid $1700 for it. Now both my cell
    phone cameras are 8Mp. (On Monday I'm trading in my work cell phone; for all I
    know, the new camera will be even bigger.)

    But the rest of the digitals, from P&Ses to professional cameras, have been
    getting better too. Cell phone cameras will never catch up, but they'll
    certainly be more and more useful to a growing cohort of users.

    I just got my first tablet a week ago. Haven't tried the camera yet. (Or is it
    "cameras"? I think there may be one on each side.)

    Physical constraints (S/N) will limit low light performance.
    Aperture and sensor size will limit creativity (DOF selection).

    The only thing "right" is that the camera you have at any quality is
    better than none at all.
