New Haven, CT, October 21, 2013
- A recent survey conducted by the Association of Personal Photo
Organizers found that the mobile phone is not replacing digital cameras
any time soon. Surprisingly, 71% of women, ages 45 – 60 polled, prefer
their Digital SLR followed by 28.6% using their mobile phone and only
20% using a compact camera.
"We found that there are still
limits with your camera phone,” says Cathi Nelson, Founder of APPO.
"Detailed shots are captured much better with an SLR zoom lens; the
camera phone can’t get those same details. Plus, camera phones struggle
in low light and good photography is all about lighting.”
Digital SLR’s ability to snap multiple photos within seconds, 88%
surveyed said their biggest challenge was now finding time to organize
all their photos. With 55% using their camera on a weekly basis, they’ve
noticed that digital photo management is starting to play a huge role
in memory preservation.
"With this being a major concern,
eventually the next front-runner will provide a combination of refined
photo technology along with extremely easy ways to manage and organize
the prolific photo taking,” says Cathi. "This combination is tricky
because you can’t take the personal out of a photograph.”
