What smartphones can't do

NO RATINGS
Regardless of the number of pixels or quality of their lens, smartphones not only lack optical (true) zoom [digital zoom is a "fake" and greatly diminishes resolution]--but they don't have a socket for a tripod mount. So many of the photos taken with them come out a little fuzzy, since it is hard to hold them steady-enough while their "shutter" captures the image. It can be very frustrating--so it you want photos which are sharp, keep a regular digital still camera and a tripod handy.

Just to show how easy it is to be wrong in predicting the future of technology and trends, check out this EDN story on a 2005 market report claiming that smartphone cameras would actually cause the digital still camera market to grow, as users leanred to love digital photos but wanted a better camera experience:

This may be the case for the low-end point & shoot cameras BUT any day their optics is far superior to those in mobile phones.

The high end camera market is thriving and is not in any danger of going away...
