Digital Photography Review: Connect

Before smartphones, at least for the majority of people, you would only be carrying a camera for planned events. But often the best moments are the ones that weren’t planned.
Photography has always been about sharing events with others and capturing a memory. When you can instantly share an experience with others and can tell a story through a photo—that brings people together.
It’s great to see Dpreview shine a spotlight on mobile photography and the innovations happening both technologically and culturally. It's a new era, and it's only going to grow.
