Politically Correct Photography: What Do You Think?
...could this be happening?
A message from Doug Clifford...
The word "digital" is one of the hottest buzzwords today. Adding "digital" to any product means cutting-edge, and often bleeding-edge technology. This is certainly the case with cameras. While high end digital camera solutions (Phase-One, MegaVision, and Leaf ) have been around for several years, the market has been small and the price very high.
In the last twelve months
The photographic product spotlight has shifted dramatically away from traditional film-based cameras to digital cameras aimed at consumers. There are two technologies currently being sold. Cameras which capture images using CCD chips, and those which use CMOS chips. The plethora of manufacturers jumping on the digital camera bandwagon include Apple, Agfa, Canon, Casio, Chinon, Epson, Fujifilm, Fujix, Hewlett Packard, Intel, Kodak, Konica, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Polaroid, Ricoh, Samsung, Sony, Sound Vision, Toshiba, Vivitar, Yashica and more.
