HTC teases huge mobile photography advances in the next 12-18 months
More specifically, Whitehor and HTC recognize that smartphone cameras have rendered point and shoot cameras effectively obsolete when it comes down to performance and portability. Now, they want to "approach the performance of regular cameras" until it becomes “much harder to justify buying a dedicated camera outside of specialist or nostalgia reasons.” The expert also points out at optical zooming as a "big feature", a deciding factor for smartphone cameras reaching "fully-fledged camera" level. According to him, optical zooming is "not too far off at all for HTC", but "the tech needs to be refined".
"We’re trying to match the performance of dedicated cameras where one piece of glass inside it costs £3000 alone."
It’s good to know that HTC isn’t being overly ambitious with this (although the highlight above does speak otherwise), because the thought of smartphones doing to DLSR cameras the same they did to point-and-shooters seems rather unrealistic at this point.
