The new landscape for Camera Manufacturers
Jul 14, 2014

With the cell phone taking over and more images snapped with that device than any other device, what will the camera manufacturers future look like?

People used to buy film cameras because there was NO alternative if you wanted an image.

Now, most people are happy with what they are getting from their cell phone.

Because of this, camera sales are dropping.  There are some local up and down fluctuations, but it is clear the trend is downwards (fewer units sold).

What will camera manufacturers have to do to fend off this downward trend?

-offer cheaper, high performance options?

-start making cell phones with nice cameras?

-other options?
