FrugalDad.com's 'The Peoples Tech Revolution' infographic is a comprehensive look at an issue facing journalism as a whole, but especially photojournalists, as the rise of "citizen journalism" and high-tech camera phones threaten to make their jobs obsolete. The guide breaks down the iPhone 4S 8 megapixel camera and its role in killing the sales of traditional digital cameras and the industry of photojournalism.

The Peoples Tech Revolution infographic breaks down the current state of the endangered industry. CNN laid off 12 of its full-time photojournalists as recently as November 2011. FrugalDad.com also provides great examples of when the perspective of the citizen provides a more raw photograph, even if it is taken on a cell phone. The Egyptian revolution in 2011 flourished on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, and at times forced the news media to go to those services to get in touch with those on the scene.
