Despite the fact that books have been around for over a thousand years, they have not been completely forgotten. Whether you like it or not, there will always be books around, but the question of whether they will become obsolete remains to be answered.
Ebooks are more in circulation than physical books
Despite predictions that the future of printed books is doomed, print books are still in demand. In fact, print books are still one of the top moneymakers for publishers.
Print books offer a unique reading experience. While digital books are often cheaper, they don’t offer the tactile feel of a physical book. They are also hard to carry around. In addition, books in the physical realm can often be found at bargain prices.
A study from Oakland University shows that physical books still rule the market. Even in this digital age, publishers are still making a large investment in print.
e-books are destined to join the ranks of clay tablets, scrolls and typewritten pages
e-books are a relatively recent phenomenon. While the print medium has been around for centuries, the digital format has finally taken the mantle. For a number of reasons, e-books have been a boon to authors, publishers and consumers. Moreover, with the proliferation of e-reader devices, e-books are now more affordable for consumers. This has paved the way for e-books to become mainstream. The demand for e-books is only likely to increase as technology evolves.
In the past few years, the electronic book has become a mainstream consumer product. Earlier versions were clunky and difficult to navigate, but the latest editions boast an intuitive user interface and a host of high-tech features.
Film photography is fairly obsolete, but it still exists
Despite the hype of digital cameras, film photography is still an option for those who want to shoot images that are permanent. Many manufacturers still produce film cameras, so a film camera can be used for many years. You can also display or frame your photos, which makes them easier to organize.
Film cameras allow for a range of colors that digital cameras cannot replicate, making them ideal for photos of wild landscapes and deep red flowers. In addition, some cameras have negative imprinting, which records aperture settings and shutter speed directly on the negative.
