Tension Rising - Smartphone Eating Digital Camera Sales

CIPA-camera-production-analThe graph that we have seen today clearly tell us that the smartphone is eating away the digital camera sales market, above all the compact camera sales is almost touching ground, the sales volume of DSLR is also shrinking every year, the Mirrorless system camera market is limited and also we are not able to see any significant improvement in sales record of mirrorless camera compared to previous year.

    This is evidenced every time I visit the zoo or the Dallas Arboretum. I see maybe 5 DSLRs, very few tablets, a few bridge cameras, some compacts but nearly everyone is shooting with a cellfone camera. And, you can bet the ones with the DSLRs, compacts, bridge and tablets are carrying in their pockets a cell phone with camera!

    I haven’t yet given up on carrying my loaded backpack but the thought has crossed my mind . . .

    Appealing cameras and photo equipment are simply too expensive, and the rest is crap. U.S. and EU markets combined are maybe ten percent of the globalized world of today: gear the products and policies to their tastes and expect massive sales of the same iterations year after year, really? Besides, next to cellphones, digital camera technology appears outright backward, and camera company policies are borderline retarded. So, leave “real” cameras to maybe two hundred thousand professional photographers throughout the world, to technical departments, hospitals, universities, and the rest of us several billion will keep happily snapping away with our iphones, galaxies and whatever new things are appearing daily.
