WOW, I didn't thought so much people would participate in this discussion.

We could turn the problem around.

Why not maken a camera where there is a sensor and optics and you can put your phone in so we can use the phone for the editorial tools.

Something like a grip for the phone with sensor and optics.

This has been tried multiple times, but it hasn't generated much interest. It becomes another thing you need to bring with you, and most peoiple are satisfied with the camera they already have in their smartphone.

It is also difficult to make a well working mechanial interface for a good fit on all different samartphones on the market.

IMO the best version was the Motorola camera attachment as it was cutom designe to fit a specific smartphone genometry, but then people wanted larger smartphones and Motorola had to give up on it.
