Tony Northup explains the Death of the Consumer Camera


In the above YouTube video Tony Northup explains the Death of the consumer camera or what happened to create the chart below in my June 9th post about the impact of SmartPhones on the camera industry.

Tony's video is going on five years old but this phenomena that he describes has been continuing since he did the video. Each year there are fewer and fewer reasons that demand professional photographers use a DSLR/Mirrorless camera. I think many professionals use DSLR/Mirrorless cameras because that's what they are use to. They understand the controls and nowadays using a big camera makes you look professional and using a Smartphone makes you look like a beginner.

All this is continuing each year. It is interesting to see the amazing jumps in technology that Samsung and Apple take.
