Just because you leave the house every day with your mobile phone and not a camera doesn't mean that point-and-shoot cameras are dead.
After reading countless blog posts and comments about the death of the category, I can say for certain that there are a lot of people who are completely unaware of what current compact cameras offer.
And this isn't just about photo quality. If you're OK with your soft, blurry, noisy photos from your smartphone that only look good viewed on a small screen and slathered with effects, that's fine. I totally get the "good enough" culture that Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites have created.
What I'm talking about are the other benefits that you get from having a dedicated camera. That includes obvious things, like a better lens and controls, to lesser-known stuff, like slow-motion video capture, high-speed burst shooting or multi-shot image processing. Basically, if you think scene modes and better photo quality are all that current point-and-shoot cameras have to offer, it's time you check out just what's available.
With that in mind, here's my list of 10 ways (although I can come up with more) that make a point-and-shoot camera better than your phone's camera.
