Professional Photography with Apps?

photoselec.-copy1The Instagrams, Hipstamatics and Pro apps for the phone become more and more easy to handle tools to snap and share with pretty and artistic results. The New York Times published even war photography on the front page, taken with the Hipstamatic app. What does that mean for the professional photographers? Well, if the phone is the new camera it got the great advantage that it is much smaller and lighter than a professional camera. But can a phone deliver the same quality? Technically not yet and even if it can, there is always the eye that makes the difference, app or not, one got to see it before snapping.
