Despite the rise of smartphone cameras, the sales of standalone cameras has actually tripled since 2003, according to Reuters.
“Camera photography is certainly not dead. We’re just seeing a skewing towards what the smartphone can’t deliver. People are recognizing that and are going for a higher end camera.”
— Liz Cutting, senior imaging analyst, NPD In-Stat.
“For several years, it has been predicted that smartphone adoption would cut into camera sales. In fact, the exact opposite has happened.”
— Prashant Malaviya, Associate Professor of Marketing at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business.
