Many believe that the emergence of smart phones into the market threatens the survival of the basic, low to mid-range, point and shoot digital cameras. There was an important study performed by optical component experts Schneider Kreuznach that verifies the capabilities of mobile phone photography. Approximately 1,000 camera users from different countries were interviewed regarding how they prefer to take photographs. Many of the interviewed camera users agreed that due to the technologically advanced features of cell phones, they believe that cellular device cameras provide users with better quality pictures.
Smart Phone Cameras
Only thirty-two percent of the individuals polled said they would rather continue to take photographs with a digital camera. There were a large number of users from Asia that were very open to using smart phones for all of their picture taking needs. More than half of the individuals from Asia would gladly replace a point and shoot camera with a smart phone.
Smart phone manufacturers recognize the importance of optimizing their camera capabilities and producing models that have higher-resolution with stronger lens systems. Many of the major mobile phone producers are joining their efforts with the leading specialized digital camera lens manufacturers to make these upgrades in future models. This will prove to be a strong team up considering that many users will soon start to use smart phones because of the other great features they provide. Smart phones have reached great levels of popularity due to the incredible features and applications that are available. Top cell phone manufacturers have also designed many Samsung Function accessories, Motorola Droid 3 accessories and even Samsung Conquer 4G accessories to help equip your mobile device.
With the increase in demand for higher quality smart phone cameras, manufacturers have started to act so that they could meet these demands. Consumers are also beginning to realize that there is no longer a need to carry both a digital camera and a cellular device to take pictures. One of the current limitations of mobile device cameras is the limited amount of storage for photo images. However, as the resolution becomes sharper by increasing the amount of megapixels, the storage capacity will increase.
Many of the high-end digital cameras are still more optimized for photography because they can take higher quality pictures than mobile devices. But casual picture takers are not as concerned with these differences. What attracts many customers to mobile devices is that they offer many great features all in one, small, easy to carry device. With many technological advancements to come, it will not be long before mobile devices can take pictures with the same quality of high-end digital cameras.
