Buy a new digital camera or just go with a smartphone with camera?
I've had my digital camera for more than 4 years and I'm ready to upgrade.
It seems like cameras in smartphones are just as good now as what I
have in my old point-and-shoot--probably better. I've seen great
photos from my friends that were taken on their phones. The photos I
take are family events and vacations. I don't do any high-end
photography. Is it better to upgrade to a smartphone for pictures or
buy a separate camera? Are smartphones going to make the point-and-shoot
camera extinct? Your advice is appreciated.
