The Rise and Rise of Smartphone Cameras

I’ve Said it Before, And I’ll Say It Again

Om Malik:

If you think the situation for standalone cameras is bleak now, just wait until we get to the future! It is pretty obvious the smartphone cameras will improve at a much faster rate than standalone cameras, which are still locked into an older model of product development. Soon, it won’t be surprising to have everyday (not just high-end) phones with three to five lens modules that do everything from wide-angle photography to longer aperture telephotos from a single device. With software improvements coming in thick and fast, I expect this will be the new reality within 24 months.

I still have my Canon G9, but I’ve not used it in ages. Any time I feel the urge to take a photo these days, I reach for my phone or tablet.
