How Smartphones Are Replacing Your Digital Camera

With iOS 7 on its way, your digital camera just might become obsolete. Here’s why.

Preference: With new technology on its way—particularly in the form of the iPhone 5S—the functionality of the digital camera is being overlooked. The new iPhone will have an improved iSight camera, which for the average person, is more than enough. Not only that, but there are a plethora of simple tips and tricks for perfecting your smartphone photography ability.

Sales Decline: The fact of the reality is: there has recently been a steady decline in the sales of digital cameras. On the other side of that, there’s been an increase in consumer spending on smartphones. You do the math.

Growing trend: A growing number of consumers are finding it much easier to use their smartphones to capture and share images, versus using their digital camera for the same purpose. It’s easier to engage in social sharing and photo touch-ups right from your phone and the simple click of a button.  For the type of photography that most consumers are interested in, the smartphone can provide the same capabilities—without having to purchase an extra device, and a costly one at that.

What does it all mean? Overall, we never forget to take our phones with us. Because of the easy accessibility, increased means of sharing, and satisfactory camera functions, the smartphone is quickly taking over as a multi-purpose picture-taking device. Not only that, but there is always room for improvement as new smartphones are introduced almost every year.

Surprise, surprise—you might be saying goodbye to your cameras sooner than you think. On the whole, there’s no better time to start looking into selling your old cameras.
