Just over 4 year ago when our StreetView Spherical Photographer Dan Root started working with search giant Google to bring their virtual tour network into and around local businesses, it seemed that his hometown of Rochdale was the perfect place to start. Today we’re delighted to showcase one of our local projects with Rochdale Council with next generation digital coverage of the revealing of the River Roch.
Unless you are an avid photographer, there is a good chance that you haven’t purchased a standalone digital camera in the last couple of years. Like most of us, you are likely to pull out your smartphone when you need to take photography on the go. Smartphone cameras have evolved to the point that for most of the consumer market, smartphone cameras will suffice. To a certain extent, smartphones are cannibalising the sale of standalone GPS and navigation devices, portable music players, and even tablets. A smartphone has become an all-powerful all-purpose device pushing aside standalone devices with ease.
