Annie Leibovitz ♥’s Her iPhone Camera
We recently noticed a story about professional photographers who are choosing to go with smaller cameras and smartphones for their photography because it makes the process simpler and more discreet. Add to that list one more noted photographer: Annie Leibovitz.
Leibovitz recently told NBC’s Brian Williams that her favorite “snapshot” camera these days is Apple’s iPhone. The reason?
“It’s so accessible and easy,” Leibovitz told Williams.
Meanwhile, the New York Times just posted this story about accessories to turn your smartphone into “a semi-pro camera.” (Whatever that means.)
Watch the interview with Leibovitz below and tell us in the comments what you think about the whole “smartphone photography” phenomenon.
Just a fad or does it have the makings of a major move away from big digital SLRs to compacts as the tool of choice?
