Compact Capture

Consumers choose smaller and smaller cameras for novelty and convenience

Implications - Compact design has been applied to other technology -- such as phones -- but now it is moving into the world of photography and video. Cameras are getting the miniature treatment and becoming smaller and smaller so that even the most sophisticated devices can fit in your pocket. The recent surge in tiny sizing allows for extreme convenience and also balances the existence of larger devices like BlackBerrys, iPhones and iPads.
