There's been a lot of discussion lately about the fate of Aperture and the future of photography software at Apple with Photos clearly being an iPhone focused app. I was recently chastised on this forum for advising someone who's looking for a point-and-shoot camera to just buy an iPhone. Their argument was that nearly any point-and-shoot camera is better than your phone camera. My counter point was that iPhone cameras are "good enough" and the benefit of having it on you all the time with the ability to instantly share anywhere trumped nearly every other benefit of a point-and-shoot. Even a month or so ago, the iPhone was already recognized by Flickr as the most popular camera in the world. But since then, a couple of additional damning pieces of evidence have caught my attention, suggesting my advice was totally sound. First, is the state of the Photography Industry for 2014 has been published by the CIPA. It's shows that there has been a 75% drop in camera sales since 2010. That's hard to believe. Second, there's more and more sites, awards, or collections of mobile photography showcasing how absolutely stunning images are being obtained with a mobile phone. Apple's latest home page is just one example. There's also Flickr's 25 Most Popular Smartphone Photographs. And some of the most prestigious photography awards now include a mobile phone category. We all know how disruptive the iPhone has been to the mobile phone industry. While, I think it's clear that there is still a niche for professional photography, I'm wondering how the ever shrinking market is going to ultimately play out for enthusiasts. Will Nikon survive long-term? Sony seems to be smart by focusing on sensors and selling them to anyone who wants them (including Apple). What does Canon's future look like? Will entry level DSLRs cease to make market sense and disappear? Will pro-grade DSLR gear get incredibly expensive to offset the loss of revenue from consumers? What do you see happening?
