Are Smartphones Killing The Digital Camera Market?

By Mike Thompson

It seems as if everyone you meet these days has a smartphone. Whether their preference is for a model manufactured by Apple or the increasingly popular Android based phones most consumers are taking full advantage of the cameras that are now standard with most models.

However, many of these consumers are also the proud owner of a compact digital camera, such as the Canon t3i. Should we surprised at this? After all, smartphones are being used to post pictures to the Internet, as well as populate the many social media sites like Instagram with what seem to be perfectly acceptable images.

Although it is true that smartphones have advanced quite far from a technological point of view, many users continue to find ways to make use of the original digital camera. Excellent quality smartphones can take reasonable photos but it is without a doubt that the price of these smartphones can easily exceed of that of a compact digital camera, that by the way can take substantially better photos.

There is also a wide variety of differing digital cameras that were made for certain uses. A great example of this is cameras made for travelling, such as holidaying or camping.

If you intend on swimming underwear, would you prefer to use a smartphone or a waterproof digital camera to take photos? It is obvious that the digital camera trumps the smartphone in this regard. The risk of misplacing one's smartphone carries a large price, since they often hold a huge amount of valuable and invaluable data, and so it is definitely better to be safe than sorry.

A very strong and sturdy digital camera should be able to be fairly shock and damage resistant and should be able to survive tourist trips, long travels and lots of sudden movement. Dropping a digital camera onto the ground might result in some marks and a few scratches but compare that to dropping a smartphone on the ground. A broken screen won't be the only thing you should be concerned about here.

There is also the factor of resolution quality. Those who appreciate fine detail, such as professional photographers or even the simple photography enthusiast, will certainly not appreciate the quality that smartphones are able to achieve. Even those in the architecture, surveying or realtor industries will need very clear pictures that can only be provided by compact digital cameras.

All in all, whether you decide to take photos with a digital camera or a smartphone is entirely up to you. Do keep in mind that although smartphones are able to take good enough photos, the risk and cost of replacing a smartphone is considerably higher than a digital camera. In any case, a good quality digital camera should be the best and most affordable option for achieving great quality photographs.
