Digital Camera's Losing Their Appeal

submitted on December 8, 2010 by midget in "Products / Gadgets"
The point-and-shoot camera, which has been a part of American households since 1900, when George Eastman introduced the Kodak Brownie, is endangered. Like other single-use devices — the answering machine, the desktop calculator, the Rolodex — it is being shoved aside by a multipurpose device: the smartphone and its camera, which takes better snapshots with each new model.

Geoffe Haney, a 44-year-old collections manager at a museum in Bay City, Mich., who also owns an iPhone 4, said the device was “my camera first, my phone second.” He added, “I have 40 photo apps on my iPhone — it’s like having 40 different cameras with you all the time.”

    No surprise that camera prices are falling, or that features are being added.

    I don't know, I like having a regular digital camera and not just the phone camera.

    I dont have an iphone but my old cell phone has a camera on it and I dont think the quality was that great.
