Smartphones replacing cameras - thoughts from Craig Mod
7 months ago

2 related essays/articles from Craig Mod on his changed/changing view of the value of smartphones against cameras. Thoughtful and intelligent writing, although I don't have the same opinions.

Short version - he sees cameras becoming less significant as photographic tools because smartphones are getting (may already be) good enough for high image standards and their inbuilt networking makes them ideal for sharing/storytelling.

But read his words, not my version of them

From "The New Yorker"
