More Photos Taken With Phones Than Cameras

55A milestone has come and gone with barely a notice. The stand alone camera is being relegated to history, with more photos and videos now captured with phones than with cameras. In fact, according to Brand Keys 55% of all photos and videos in 2012 were taken with smart phones, up 20% from 2011. In 2013 I am sure this number will be even greater.

    While the cameras on smartphones have become absolutely amazing for amateur point & shoot photographers, they have a long ways to go still. It is quite interesting to watch the progression.
