Camera Phones get Sexy; Do Users Care?

Article: Camera Phones get Sexy; Do Users Care?

Summary: Wireless phone manufacturers makers are gearing up to ship mass volumes of camera phones worldwide in hopes of sparking new markets in mobile imaging. They say they can resolve looming design hurdles for 2-megapixel and higher-resolution images as well as real-time video. Predictions that the industry will ship 800 million camera phones by 2007 and that consumers will snap perhaps 100 billion digital images a year. The limiting factor is the lens and optics. Just as megahertz alone doesn't produce better computers, megapixels don't produce better images; you need low signal-to-noise ratios, good color balancing and superior image processing.
  • Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., for one, wants to push quickly toward the 5-megapixel camera phone and push digital still cameras to become something only for professionals
  • Adobe Systems Inc. is beginning to deliver capabilities in its applications to let designers build professional graphics for handsets based on the so-called Scalable Vector Graphics Tiny standard
  • Mattel Inc. is about to launch a $25 camera phone for children.
  • Boeing Co. wants to put camera phones in airplane seat backs to let users create in-flight video networks
  • Nokia and Samsung both expressed confidence that LED and flash modules and optical focus mechanisms will find their way into camera phones starting with the 2-Mpixel generation next year
Question: With the increase in consumer photography equipment, photographers have become a dime a dozen. With a move from digital cameras to camera phones, is this good news, perhaps, for professional photographers? If everyone and their dog has a camera phone, does it bring back the prestige and possibly add some professionalism to owning a "real" camera?
