I'm kind of an intermediate 'photographer'. Use a Nikon D3100. So, today I took some test pictures with the new iP4S camera and a few of my friends who are much more serious and have much better cameras than me made a couple of comments like "I'm always astounded by what a bang for the buck you get with the D3100, not a pro level, but those are some dang fine pictures from a sub $1000 DSLR. Problem is, they were from the iP4S. I think I'm probably just going to give my point and shoot away at this point. There's really no need whatsoever for it.
