The iphone XX definitelyNo, sorry, that's one zero too many. Give it a few years and we might get there, though
Amlan you are right...if its not specifically for photography, i have stopped taking my dslr..dslr photos are not soo beautiful out of camera..also people want pics then n there to share the fun..nobody wants to wait.Some more thoughts on this, I'm in a wedding and I'm shooting with a manual 50mm 1.4 prime. Essentially all the phones around me have a dual camera and can detect faces and simulate the lens blur of my fast lens. They have high ISO boost and even shoot in low light. Plus they can upload to whatsapp/fb/Google/insta instantly while i have to thether. Even the pros here with flashes, tons of Gmaster and L lenses are not getting the same appreciation as the phone pics.
Guess the change of taste and the ability of the new tech to shoot better means we'll have to improve as well.

I'm sure even people who shoot film have their place this is like being a specialist in processing and developing film. The whole craziness of a DSLR might get rendered obsolete soon.
Stuff like this Sony teases smartphones with 3D ToF sensors; may give us a glimpse of future smartphones
In my mind its going to be the ability to tell stories, the ability to get that decisive moment that'll help keep us relevant.
The problem is that most of the learning i do is the tools, lightroom, how to use a function on the camera, how TTL metering works on a flash etc. What would be a great place to learn the story/asthetics part of photography?
Story and aesthetics are important for mobile photography too. The difference between mobile cameras and dedicated cameras lie in technical capability and ergonomics. As for learning the art of telling stories, how good is your writing, and how good are you as a raconteur?
A possible way to practice telling stories with a camera is to first write the caption for the photo, then take the photo. This is a technique borrowed from product design - create the product brochure first, then create the actual product.
Next week looks like a big week for Canon: 5 RF lenses and a basic full frame mirrorless camera for a crazy stupid low price. Looks like they are trying to build an ecosystem before they launch their pro series, including a 100 MP MILC.
