the true faults of iPhone photography

This week in the MacNN forums, Mac Elite "PeterParker" started a thread discussing the pros and cons of taking pictures with an iPhone from the point of view of someone who has studied professional photography. Today, one Mac Elite hit their head against the wall while trying to figure out problems with iTunes 11, and turned to the forums looking for advice.

Yesterday "rotuts" started a thread asking others if he should update to 10.6.8 after only recently upgrading to 10.6.4. Also yesterday, Mac Elite "jeff k" turned to the forums looking for help with a hard drive that wasn't mounting. Files locked on a secondary hard drive are plaguing one forum-goer today, as they wonder what they are doing wrong and how to fix it.

    It's not hard to see why taking photos with an iPhone (or indeed any smartphone) is a pain. The ergonomics are dreadful. It's designed to be held and used as a phone not a camera. If I made iPhone cases with built-in batteries, I'd design one that'd attach easily and be shaped like one of the better point-and-shoot cameras. It'd be for people on vacation who use their iPhone more as a camera than a phone.

    Since you can use the volume buttons to trigger the shutter, ergonomics have improved drastically.
