By way of showing that the sharpshooter vs. shotgunner debate is an old one that well pre-dates the digital era, here's an amusing paragraph. It's about a newfangled device called the "hand camera" (incidentally, for which you could easily substitute "digital camera."
"It is amusing to watch the majority of hand camera workers shooting off a ton of plates helter-skelter, taking their chances as to the ultimate result. One in a while these people make a hit, and it is due to this cause that many pictures produced by means of the hand camera have been considered flukes. At the same time, it is interesting to note with what regularity certain men seem to be the favourites of chance -- so that it would lead us to conclude that, perhaps, chance is not everything, after all."
—Alfred Stieglitz, 1897 (from Bill Jay's Album magazine)
