Is accessability harmful to the craft of photography?
Photography is becoming more accessible to everyone. Not only are quality cameras and equipment more affordable and readily available, intelligent auto and creative modes allow users to take perfectly exposed and focused images effortlessly. Software and post processing tools are also available both in camera (the 5D mark III has HDR mode built in) and out of camera, with filters, effects, vignettes, textures all a click away.

Furthermore the internet and social media is making it easier for people to share and gain a following, (think flickr, instagram, facebook, blogger etc) -- encouraging other people to emulate them, irregardless of whether they are using the correct techniques.

Do you see this as a good thing or a bad thing for photography? Is it a positive that the barriers to creativity are being removed, or do you see it as a watering down of the craft?
