why would camera companies need computational when their picture quality is way better than smartphone camera? What they need to do is add social media features...so the picture can be shared instantly.

Unless you're a journalist, I can't imagine a reason to share an image instantly.

Smartphone cameras only popular cause photos can be shared with ease among friends and families.

I thought they were popular because you already bought the thing for other purposes and always have it with you for communication. So the cameras are just the lowest-common-denominator.

In the 7 or so years I've had a smartphone, I've shared one image instantly, and that one was unnecessary.

But you don't represent everybody's (or even most peoples') use case.

Okay, then give me a reason a photograph has to be shared instantly when it's not a journalistic or editorial reason.  I mean, I've shown my wife an item at the store and asked if she wanted it or if it was the right one, but I'm not talking about that sort of thing.

Why does your vacation image (or whatever) have to be shared instantly or it's of no value?  I think 99.99% of instantly-shared images are shared instantly for no good reason other than the person doesn't want to have to think about it later.
