cell phones has been adding pixels for a while, as to nullify the need for general consumers to toddle a compact camera in daily life as well on travel since, say last Fall when for the first time mine sold two or three Weeks after putting in some of the most popular second hand markets . I always have the sought-after models and normally re-sell over-night as long as you tag a couple W10,000 below the going rate . (empty scenes in electronics-dedicated districts or rather buildings listed on Top Menu, is not a recent scheme for it has been a good decade after On-Line shopping malls took over the lime-light) here some manufacturers have changed strategy to up the ante, in producing more powerful cameras, still retaining its mobility BUT becoming quite expensive .
