Standalone camera: Shot (Dead) By iPhone
It is hard to miss Apple’s “Shot on iPhone 6” advertising campaign. It is pretty much everywhere in San Francisco, not surprising that Apple is gearing up for the launch of its brand new Photos app. The company is spending a considerable amount of resources hyping the iPhone 6 and its capabilities ahead of the new application.
While walking to work, I was wondering if they are just saying the obvious. It is pretty clear that the iPhone 6 (and 6-plus) have become a major disrupter in the world of photography. It has already become the second most popular camera being used to upload photos to Flickr. In a previous post, I had pointed out that: “The ultimate beauty of iPhone — it has made photography not scary. It has removed technology and made it just an act of creation.”
