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.”

With 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.”
