An inbuilt assumption here is that some image capturing devices are substantially inferior to others and that those using the 'inferior' devices can't be photographers or produce decent 'photographs'. However...it is the photographer that creates the image using an image capturing device and at the end of the day there might be billions of people using image capturing devices as and when they feel it appropriate.....but not all of them will qualify as 'photographers creating photographs' in the same way that everyone who knocks something up in the kitchen isn't a chef although both are 'cooking'. Bottom line is that decent images will be taken by decent photographers and the quality will show.....they don't really have to worry about the death of photography anymore than chefs worry that better kitchen gadgets will be the death of the culinary arts....tools are just tools...it is craftsmanship that counts

It evolved. Gone are the days where people spent hours waiting for that precious moment, getting their setting right. Now its taking any ol photo and sitting on lightroom for a couple of hours.
