Digital Cameras vs. Smartphone Cameras

When you are going out for a day in the city or a dinner, most people do not bring their digital cameras but always have their phones on them.  Most of us have made the switch from regular cell phones to Smartphone’s.  We always have these on us and are constantly connected to the internet.   These Smartphones are especially critical for the  IT recruiters for the Boston-based IT staffing company in which I interned at this past summer.

I had gone to a concert a few weeks ago and had brought my digital camera to take some pictures.  With all the lights on stage, the images would come out blurry or really dark.  My friend on the other hand was able to shoot pictures with her phone at better quality.  It turns out that the cameras on cellular phones have been improving slowly and now are even more convenient then bring around your camera.

Phones like the HTC Evo come with a camera that has 8 megapixels.  In addition, these cameras are also equipped with an HD video recorder capability.  Somewhere along the years our phones have been revamped and now are the only thing we will need.  Your phone is an accessory that many do not tend to forget.  Now it allows them to take pictures, shoot movies, and many other things right at your fingertips.

Of course digital camera makers are now looking into internet capabilities as add-ins.  This would allow users to take pictures or shoot movies and connect wirelessly to share with friends and family.  Not all the cameras have this capability at the moment, but at this rate digital camera makers may end up with strategic partnerships with cellular phone makers.

Therefore, if you’re a technical recruiter, work for one of the local IT recruiting companies, or just are going to a concert, Smartphones with camera/video options is the way to go!
