Can the iPhone 4S Replace a “Real” Digital Camera?

Chris Foresman, for Ars Technica:

Would a professional photographer replace her trusty DSLR with an iPhone 4S? No. But, might a casual snap shooter replace a pocket camera with an iPhone 4S? It’s pretty likely.

This is pretty much my conclusion as well. On a recent trip to Vancouver, I left my DSLR at home and brought only my 4S. It freed up my bag, kept my daily carry lightweight and provided shots that are decent enough to print.
