In the good old days, every family had a camera to record their vacations and special moments. But now it’s not necessary because we’ve all got smartphones. We can instantly snap a picture and share it on Instagram or upload it to an online storage system. There’s no longer a need for personal cameras.
We’re not talking about high-end cameras with expensive lenses because real photographers and serious enthusiasts use these. Meanwhile, film cameras remain fashionable and a high-quality Leica costs lots of money. But regular personal digital cameras are obsolete because a phone does the same job (via PC Magazine).
