I organized a panel at the recent PACA (the Digital Media Licensing Association) conference around mobile photography and image licensing. I invited 4 companies representative of what is going on in this space, in an effort to show and explain that the next major disruption in the professional image licensing world will come from your mobile phone.
Everyone is now fully aware that professional DSLRs are going to be replaced by mobile phone cameras. It is just a question of time. Already, this year, there has been more phone cameras sold than point and shoots… While DSLR cameras offer much more than point and shoots, they are already threaten by the high quality files delivered by phones.
