Snapshot Voyager is about my own personal photography journey. I am always looking to try something new, inquisitive as to how it works, and to the end results I might achieve.

Camera Industry Commentary

After more than a decade of growth fuelled by the digital revolution, the camera manufacturers are now in decline.  The market is now saturated, people are only renewing what they have, and manufacturers really haven't offered anything truly innovative to the average consumer.  Sure, some cool stuff, like the A7/A7r, has come out that appeals to enthusiasts, but nothing revolutionary for the 'man on the street'.

Manufacturers also failed to see the smart phone revolution, which has stolen most of the compact camera business, and even now none of the traditional manufacturer offers (with the exception of Sony) offers a phone with a camera in it, or a partnership with a phone manufacturer.

What I am looking for is something to change my photographical life, not just a new lens or body, but something indispensible that doesn't leave my side.  Not sure what that is yet, but I'll know it when I see it, and I doubt it will come from Canon, Nikon or Fuji.
