'Photography has been destroyed by mobile phones'

Once optical zooms have been successfully incorporated into smartphones, this will surely be the end of compact cameras and low-end DSLR/CSCs as well - i.e. the sort that people buy with just a kit lens... and never add any other lens.

As to posterity, photography has become more of a throwaway commodity than ever. The only photos anyone will bother looking at are those of people who mean (or have meant) something to them. They won't mind too much if these have been taken on a smartphone or a Hasselblad H6D. Tongue

I could see a comment by Lemmy and someone else on my buzz feed but couldn't see the posts in this thread.

Quote:The cheaper and easier you make things, the less value it has. Photography is becoming cheaper and easier and thus has less value to people.

Yawn, views like this have been around since the earliest days of film, photography has become cheaper in its most basic of form and this is good and having more value for people not less.

Its the name George Eastman not familiar to you ?

So, what you're saying is, I can get just as much money for a great photograph of say a bird now as I could 30 years ago? Sorry, this is just plain wrong.
