Most people need is just a smartphone not a camera, definitely there will be less and less players in the camera market in the near future.

I agree, though I find it odd that some people appear threatened by this. When I read people dismissing smartphones because of the IQ (compared to their DSLR or other camera) I wonder "So what?. That person is happy having a camera that is always with them, convenient to use and gets the job done."

I'm using my smartphone more for photos. In fact, I selected it with one of its main criteria being photo capability. For me it's not just convenience: I use apps to experiment with making images (no, not Instagram) that embrace both the foibles and advantages of a smartphone.

It will be interesting to see how Samsung's Galaxy camera phone, which is more of a camera with a built in phone rather than a phone with a camera, sells after release.

If, in my lifetime, I will have produced just one image that makes a real difference in the life of another, I will have achieved my highest goal as a photographer.
