And I’m seeing so many people do just that. They are double fisting. iPhone in one hand and a more “serious camera” for different photography experiences.
I like this new notion of “double fisting”, and I’ve certainly seen this trend amongst some friends as well. But I highly doubt this becomes a norm. Most people will always “single fist” and that single fist will carry a smartphone as a camera.
Remember too that while improvements are being made to standalone cameras, the speed of innovation is happening much faster on the smartphone cameras. I can’t wait to see this new “iPhone 5S” camera. I have a point-and-shoot that broke a few weeks back. I haven’t yet had the urge to fix it because I never use it anyway. 99.999999% of my pictures are taken with my iPhone.
