More Consumers Using Phone as Main Camera
While more than half of consumers still use a point-and-shoot as their primary camera, the amount of consumers who use a smartphone as their main camera has reached 18 percent, triple the number from two years ago.
That's according to a survey released Thursday by the Consumer Electronics Association.
"Consumers don’t want to miss out on that great moment. Although they value the quality of digital SLRs and point-and-shoots, smartphones and tablets are great for that quick, can’t-miss shot,” Chris Ely, manager of industry relations for CEA and overseer of the survey, said in a statement.
