As long as the result is right, it should not matter what equipment was used.


I think pretty much everyone is on board with that.


Absolutely.  It's the "as long as the result is right" part that is the issue.

Both side have valid points.

IMO if an image is technical okay... why not acceptable.?. :)
How much different is a Ipod, iPAD, Iphone image from a point and shoot.?.. where is the line.?.

But that's the problem, they AREN'T technically OK. They might be compositionally OK, they might be creatively OK, but I don't see how cellphone pics can be technically as good as something taken from a high-end camera. If they are, then we are all fools for spending thousands of dollars on tripods, cameras, studio equipment, etc. etc.

There's a big different between "technically OK" and "as good as a high end dslr".  As has been pointed out, in favourable circumstances the best of the cellphone cameras can produce technically adequate photos.

We pay for high-end cameras because they are far more capable and perform well in tough circumstances. We can do lots of things with a good SLR that are simply impossible with a cellphone.
