sundown at Malibu Creek

Malibu Creek State Park Β· December 3, 2023 Β· iPhone 14 Pro 6.9mm, f/1.8, 1/620s

iPhone 14 Pro. I don't need anything else to document our local expeditions. The GoPro hasn't seen light for over 20 months, and will only see it when we go back in the water πŸ„πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ.

The Sony A6400 + Tamron 17-70mm f/2.8 combo is being used only for portraits.

Om Malik's (along with many others') diagnosis and prognosis is spot on.

The big four camera makers β€” Canon, Nikon, Fuji, and Sony β€” will be left fighting over scraps. Of the lot, Sony seems to be the best prepared to navigate the choppy waters. And it won’t be because of its camera sales β€” it is because of its photography focussed component business. Sony makes sensors for everyone, including the standalone camera’s biggest nemesis: the smartphone (and specifically, the iPhone).
