I think you linked the wrong article. I didn't see the market share for professional photographers in there.

You won't find an accurate representation of marketshare for "professional" (whatever that means) photographers here on MM, either. "Professional" or not, you're going to get a response from ppl who want to talk about their phones.

At least from that article, you can imagine/imply that the "professional" photographer market isn't too far off from the numbers.

But if the OP WANTED someone to just blindly validate iPhones, they should have just said so...

You might have a point Brian if this wasn't a "Photography" forum. I felt if might be kind of redundant to say, "Photographers", do you use and blah blah or blah blah. My hopes are to get working professionals to use my product but I would like it if non pros would start to use pro equipment if the cost came down by 60%.

Does it resemble the bastard child of an Alesis ProTrack and a Sekonic L478?  If it does, pop me on the "probably interested" list. smile

That would be clever, but I just hope that the OP does the market research for the hardware.

Those that need them already have one (or more), and those that "want" them probably just want to pretend to know how to use them.

And the  people like me, who wouldn't ever use one because I don't know how, and I don't see how it would improve anything.

Widows desktop, 2 ipads (original and 2), and android phone. Will be converting to all windows 8 as soon as possible. The Surface tablet looks great. Will happily turn my iapds into frisbees.

Droid. Only because I HATE "Big Apple" (but always liked Motorola).

I do have to give Apple props for marketing genius. They have turned into exactly the big controlling monopoly that they used to market against...all the while maintaining that "cool rebel upstart" image. Damned comical. lol

I do have a pair of cheap (99-cent store) white earbuds though, just so I can be stylish at the Starbucks too.

You misunderstood what I said completely, Lyman. This is a photography forum, yes. But

1) there's a wide mix of people here, some professional, some otherwise, and more importantly,

2) the only people who are going to respond to this thread are people who feel passionately enough about their phones to say something. Asking random people in a forum is hardly a representative "sample" of professional photographers. I would daresay that the Huffington Post statistic would just as accurate a reflection of "professional" photographers, if not more so.

But good luck getting "working photographers" to use your product. I'm sure it's the next big app for "professionals".

Best Phones for Photographers

They feature tons of features that are 'extra' in both driods and iphones
and have had them built in for years , long before mac /driod even featured them.

The Nokia N8 is a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash and a large sensor that rivals those found in compact digital cameras. People can also make HD-quality videos and edit them with an intuitive built-in editing suite



The Nokia 808 PureView features a large, high-resolution 41 megapixel sensor with high-performance Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology

Exactly. This is a pro device but I hope that advanced amateurs will give it a try too. I really can't imagine a mom or dad using it to snap pics in their back yard.

you'll find pros using both. No different than Apple/Windows users.
