Well , perspective depends from point of view .

Out of the western richer bloc , Australia and Japan , future , as you paint it , is reality already :

Half year after presentation Canon 5D3 was nowhere to be seen around in the Philippines .

So I got mine in Bangkok .

Printing is getting less and less relevant , screen view of photos no doubt requests less quality .

If we're talking about the future I don't think this necessarily will apply much longer. We've already got small 300+ ppi screens. 4k tv screens are 8 megapixels. I foresee a return to the need for high resolution images because all digital screens are going to be producing print quality images.

At the moment the planet seems hungry of smartphones , more than anything else .

In this world photography is a commodity not art .
