Tips & Tricks - iPhone iOS 5: perfect photos in 15 moves

A recent market study by NPD Group showed that all sensed: immortalize the moment with smartphones becoming more and more common and undermines the market for compact digital cameras cheaper.

"Manufacturers have come up with something to revive the fortunes of the compact camera"

All paparazzi - In the USA, it refers to the study, the percentage of photographs taken with a smartphone rose from 16% in 2010 to 27% in 2011 . At the same time the percentage of shots with cameras dropped from 52% to 44%. Even the market data are consistent: in the first 11 months of last year sales of compact digital cheapest kind, the so-called "point and shoot", was down 17%. In short, more than a quarter of photos and video taken with the phone.

Quality pays off - probably to determine this trend is not only the increasing popularity of smartphones in the U.S. as in Europe, but also improvements in integrated cameras. The demand for better quality on the part of the photographers, in fact, is reflected by the fact that the market for cameras with interchangeable lens (DSLR and CSC) in the United States increased by 12% in units sold, which is a bell'11% more turnover. The sale of so-called "superzoom", or by 10X or more, even increased by as much as 16%.

Run for cover - The historical producers of cameras, according to the data, seem to have partly offset the flight of the general public towards smartphones, but it is possible to predict that by 2012 will have to review some production decisions in recent years. Omit, for example, the frantic race to the megapixels - the current 10/16 are already more than enough for many people - and reinsert a real viewfinder "optical" to be able to shoot without the display - such as smartphones - becomes almost unreadable when it is illuminated by a ray of sunshine. It would not be bad either make the compact more convenient to take with him and improve the bundled software to be installed on computers to simplify the management of albums and sharing on social networks. By the way, when will we see a real camera with apps, maybe Android? (Sp)
