Re: Camera Phone vs M43

In terms of hardware, Sony Honami i1 is expected to pack a 20-megapixel camera capable of taking 4K resolution video (4000x2000p) with aspect ratio of 2:1. It is also able to snap 5248x3936p quality pictures thanks to the new resolution algorithm set

The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip is reported to be able to support a camera with a 55ml camera.

One of the big selling points for M43 was the smaller size and weight. A smartphone with a 20 megapixel camera is much easier to carry around.

How long before they start to offer different lens attachments for smartphones and begin to phased out dedicated cameras?

The advantage m43 has over smartphones is not megapixels. It's sensor size. No smartphone will ever have the sensor size of m43 (the Galaxy NX doesn't count, it's a camera that's had Android added to it, not a smartphone that's had a decent camera added to it).

Go learn.

Put "larger sensor more light better" into Google.

Once you understand, come back.
