|Traditional cameras threatened by smartphones|
Cartoon by Bitstrips
As good as smart phone cameras are getting, they are still not a patch on my Canon 5D. And when I go somewhere new and scenic I take my camera for sure. But the rest of the time I am relying on my phone and find myself taking my camera with me less than in the past.
It seems like I am not the only one. Canon, the biggest maker of camera equipment is being hit hard as people spend less on cameras, relying instead on their cell phones. Canon even lowered its profit forecast in the middle of 2013 because of declining camera sales. (Canon hit by rising popularity of smartphone cameras).
How about you? Do you find yourself leaving your gear behind sometimes now and simply relying on your smart phone?
