CutUp – Studio Oefner
Oefner deliberately selected still and video cameras to slice apart. This is an allusion to his earlier photographic work, where the image made with the camera is the “art” and the camera itself is merely a tool. For this series, the tool is transformed into a piece of art. It is at the same time a deconstruction of the technology of image capturing, revealing the beauty underneath the surface of these objects.

Everyday objects manually transformed into functional film cameras
It’s not uncommon to see, in any situation from a museum to a public park to see both amateur and professional photographers capturing moments using technology ranging from sleek smartphones to cumbersome lenses. Less common is the sight of a photographer shooting with a loaf of bread, mannequin, or shed.

2019 outlook on the shipment by product type concerning cameras and related goods (pdf)
Via Benedict Evans newsletter: "Fascinating set of charts for the Japanese camera industry. The compact camera is now mostly gone thanks to smartphones, but the higher-end removable-lens cameras have stabilized, and at a much higher revenue than pre-digital, and lens sales are doing great. Also, the customer for these cameras is now younger and less male. Digital has opened up pro/hobbyist cameras even as smartphones killed snapshot cameras."

Sony Ericsson W800i review
On the back of the phone is a 2.0 Megapixel camera with flash, auto-focus and even a lens cover. We were very impressed by the quality of pictures the W800i takes and while it's not good enough to replace a stand-alone digital camera, it's clearly the best camera present on a mobile phone to date. The camera takes photos at Small (160x120), Medium (640x480) and Large (1632x1224) resolutions and can shoot panorama, frames and burst.

Canon is officially done selling film cameras after 80 years
Over the next 80 years, Canon would produce a long, respected line of rangefinders and SLR cameras that turned the company into a global leader in camera equipment. But after the introduction of Canon’s first digital camera, the RC-701 in 1984, Canon’s focus began shifting more and more toward the emerging digital camera market. Even as virtually all of its film cameras were discontinued in the digital age, Canon kept the EOS-1V alive for professional film photographers as its sole film camera.

Just hold one - the Asahi (Honeywell) Pentax Spotmatics
The Spotmatics are dear to my heart because they just feel right in the hands. They have documented family birthdays and been a regular carry around camera when shooting locally in the neighbourhood and in Toronto.  I have loads of more technically superior cameras in my collection but for some reason the Spotmatics are the Beatles of cameras, quite accessible for both beginner and more experienced shooters alike.

Flickr’s top photos of 2017 are dazzling proof that the SLR isn’t dead
The raw numbers about devices used by Flickr’s community reflect the impact of the smartphone revolution: 54% of all photographers use an iPhone, with traditional cameras manufactured by Canon and Nikon next in line at 23% and 18%, respectively. I’m struck, however, by the fact that all of the top 25 images were taken with a conventional camera rather than a phone.
