Guess Nokia has made at least a tiny step forward towards slightly more serious smartphone photography.

"serious smartphone photography."

So that's what? A contradiction on terms at best?

Not really. If the subject is suitable for what the small sensor does in terms of DOF and color accuracy even a smartphone (in the hands of a skilled photographer) manages to get decent results.
However proper post production is mandatory to get pro results.

I'm going to regret asking this, but who would tether a Rebel T4i...or any rebel camera?

John Zocco's picture

Why not? Those cameras are capable of making quality images, and if someone wants to shoot tethered with one they should be able to. Sounds like some gear snobbery going on.

There is no gear snobbery...I just highly doubt that there is a huge audience for shooting tethered with a rebel... Hell I use to work for Casio and I'm shocked to see the EX 10 up there for camera support.

Audience? You mean all the photographers who use one to make images?

Nothing wrong with a Rebel.

I made this with a rebel

For the simple and slightly snarky answer: Someone who owns a Rebel.

I tether with a Rebel.
