How long before our cameras are obsolete ?

I presume that most folks here do not earn their living from photography.

I bet most of the images we make are viewed on screens and stored in a computer.

I love my camera gear and I enjoy photography of all sorts but the quality of the latest generation of smart phones is impressive. Both for stills and video.

What's more they are easy to carry..........you  can make phone calls and text...watch films and TV. And play games . Not to mention access to the net. I' stating the obvious but this coming together of technology must signal the end of photography and camera gear as we know it .

The latest smart phones are Impressive ..really impressive. Bearing in mind my 2 opening statements do we need more? .......So when will the penny  drop and will we start to swap a £1000 camera for a £1000 smart phone?

If we all come to this conclusion together there is going to be a lot of good gear on Ebay for not a lot of dosh  ?
