Did video kill the radio star?

They say that video killed the radio star, but rather than moaning about it, why not embrace the march of technological progress. Sure, older technologies become obsolete and fall out of use and out of popularity, but there's a good reason that music videos took off - they gave a whole new creative dimension to the musical experience, allowing for visual artistry to complement the sound. And it happens in every sphere.

When it comes to photography and videography, for instance, it's tempting to say that the smartphone killed the camera. More people than ever before are taking photographs on their smartphones rather than on dedicated cameras. But one of the most common gripes is a lack of quality when it comes to smartphone photography, and thanks to that, there's an enduring and undeserved perception of smartphones as low-quality photography instruments.

I say undeserved, because with lenses from Struman Optics, any smartphone can become just as powerful as a professional camera. For instance, consider the Struman telephoto prime lens, with 14x optical zoom that circumvents the graininess often found with digital zoom. With the telephoto lens, you can take the kind of photos that you would otherwise need a whole camera for, but without sacrificing the convenience and portability of a smartphone.

At the end of the day, the smartphone is a powerful tool for photography, and rather than finding excuses to fight against the technological revolution, Struman's working with the new technology to give you the best creative experience.
