Don’t waste your time nor mine on any bit of that dinosaur debate

- - Blog News

The iPhone 4s, which is nearly always located in my shirt pocket, produces (albeit for now as jpeg only) images in bright sunlight and shade nearly just as well as my first ever digital camera, purchased nearly 11 years ago in 2001 to cover the war in Afghanistan — a Nikon 1Dx. At the time it cost well over $6000 USD.

    • The best camera is the one that’s the right-tool-for-the-job. Sometimes it’s a MFD, a M4/3 or even an iPhone (not just because you have it with you, but because it’s the right tool).

      “Mark these words deep into your conscious — within the next five to tens years (likely less), most professional photographers will be primarily using a camera which is indeed located within something as portable and ubiquitous in our purses/pockets as an iPhone.”

      I agree, technology changed rapidly over the past 10 years, and it will change even faster in the future.

  1. the technology became extremely affordable. we sold a house to do a start-up in the photography business, which bought us 2 cameras, 3 lenses and a trip to Europe. These days you get a decent camera as a birthday gift.

  2. There have been a couple image projects that did not involve a camera, nor involve going anywhere. Perhaps Google Street View will completely replace cameras in the future. ;)

  3. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally
    educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.

    I am very happy that I came across this during my search for something relating to this.
