The week in links, April 23rd 2010

Via Reuters: “Nokia exec: phones to make system cameras obsolete“. I checked, it wasn’t posted on April 1st. Call me crazy, but I really can’t see this happening. On the other hand, if I ran a company which depended on sales of compact point and shoot digital cameras, I’d be looking at cellphones and the lower end of the mirrorless interchangeable lens segment with much fear and loathing right about now as their outflanking maneuver unfolded around me.

The Discerning Photographer has an article up explaining why it’s important to do at least some of your own printing. I’m in agreement here: sure, it’s convenient to be able to present work online, but a printed photo just has something about it which viewing on a screen lacks.
