I also put together a family yearbook as Christmas gifts and the camera photos generally suck in comparison but it's better than nothing.
Agreed. Camera phones can't handle indoor shots without flash most of the time. They end up super grainy and/or blurry.
But on the other end of the spectrum, there are the spec whores who end up buying the newest dSLR yet haven't produced a decent picture ever. They can talk all about the specs they want, but the more you're talking, the less you're doing.
A camera is only a tool... dSLR's just make it easier. If you don't have the eye for it, it doesn't matter if you have a $10 camera, or a $10,000 camera.
