This 'Photography Industry' infographic details the changing sphere of capturing images. Recently undergoing some major alterations, this is a business under major construction.

Heavily influenced by the recent surge in mobile photographic technology, the industry is feeling somewhat devastating which is reflected by this chart. The graph, which mentions Kodak's recent file for bankruptcy, paints a somewhat dire picture for the future of this industry. Point-and-shoots are being dramatically outnumbered by smartphones, and it may be accurate to say that these models are a dying breed.

Though telling a somewhat sad story, the infographic itself is quite attractive and actually references the lo-fi style which dominates smartphone captures today. The chart details a fairly short history of the camera, but is quite comprehensive in telling the story of photography. Stats for Snapshot Business Charts Trending: Older & Warm
