Are point-and-shoot cameras in danger of extinction? As the cameras in phones like the iPhone and bevy of Android-powered devices start stepping up their game, there's less of a need to tote a second recreational camera. The New York Times says that simple point-and-shoots are endangered because of the rise in popularity of highly technical smartphone cameras.
In fact, after reading the article, which quotes one iPhone user saying her camera is now "one less thing to carry," I realized that I toss my camera in my bag far less than I did pre-iPhone camera. And the images that are on my digital camera have been there for a few weeks.
Are you guilty of this too? Do you think the point-and-shoot could ever go the way of the floppy disk?
