Most cameras in these days are loosing concept of  digital photography.

Because of due to highly increasing supportive by the smart phone application

and m3/4 cameras are being sold in modern photography.  Infact, you can use your smartphone and just edit by photoshop there you go. Eventually you don't need a dslr to take photo in 21st century.  People are using taking photos by what kind of equipment they like, such as smartphone, compact digital, or dslr.  Because it's due to sensor that has camera body inside/we'lll going to see lot more price dropping for current DSLR in the future.  At that time probably within next 20~50 years or so, we'll actually going to able take photos of DSLR quality in smartphone.  There will be APS-C image sensored in the smart phone future.

The truth is ?  Just use any camera that fits your needs.

The apps as you call them are already inside the camera, I am using Icontrast for expanded DR, and have been experimenting with Nightscene mode which overlays three images for reduced noise and higher shutter speed for hand holding at night.

Here is an example taken with a P&S with a tiny 1/2.3 sensor.  This camera fits in a belt bag, so why would I need to lug around more than this?

Nightscene mode

That's okay for a still life shot, but images of dynamic scenes (e.g., street photography or kids) aren't going to allow taking 3 quick shots to combine like this. People who can't hold the camera steady also lose out on some of these kinds of shots if they're trying to hand hold. But I also have yet to see the kind of bokeh I like coming from a tiny sensor even with software based effects being applied. Maybe 5 years from now? Maybe 10 years from now? We'll see.
