I forget the make of my first digital camera but I remember its price; around about $1,000.
What's so amazing is that the cameras in today's iOS devices have resolutions thousands of times better for far less cost and they're far easier to use. But as great as that is, what makes taking photos with iOS-based products really factastic are all the photography apps now available.
I recently wrote a slideshow titled 12 crazy good iOS photography apps wherein I covered a collection of iOS apps that make photography using the iPhone, iPads, and the iPod Touch not only more interesting but, in several cases, improve the results immensely.
Check out the slide show and if you have any app you think I should have included, let me know.
