Why Are Professional Cameras Dumb?

In front of clients, I use professional cameras to “IMPRESS” them.

Paying customers see value in the size of equipment I carry.

However, these machines are DUMB, compared with its smart cousins.

Our iPhone and Android cameras can do so much more and quicker.

The  main difference is sensor size. Bigger size the better quality.

If professional cameras can  build the smartness into their dumb machines, more creative work can be done in a shorter time.
