Sports used to be done with 4 X 5 press cameras, photography was a high skill. Automating things to bring those skills into the hands of ordinary photographers has driven the camera market. Autofocus, interchangable lenses, built-in light meters, rear lcd's, TTL viewfinders, its all about making the once difficult easier to do.

Absolutely. And then folks wonder why less and less value is placed on individual photographs when the skill required to produce them is diminished. Anyone can push the shutter button now and almost all the technical aspects are automated to produce a reasonable image. Next the advent of deeper AI will not only track focus but will suggest composition. While great photographers will continue to evolve and push the edges, it is the 'just average' photographers who will continue to be displaced IMHO.
