Nokia's EVP Predicts Camera-Phones to Make SLR Cameras Obsolete

Reuters, The Register: Fast developing cameraphone technology will shortly make SLR system cameras and even professional cameras obsolete, Nokia's Markets EVP Anssi Vanjoki said in a speech in Helsinki.

"There will be no need to carry around those heavy lenses," Vanjoki said, pointing to a professional photographer taking pictures of him.

Vanjoki said HD video recording was also coming to cellphones within the next 12 months.

  1. Amazing! It will be wonderful to have optical zoom, multi-zone auto focus, image stabilization, great light gathering capability, large pixel performance, near telecentricity, and multielement lenses in a cell phone shortly.
    I imagine this is due to the Invisage break-through.

  5. Shortly? Define that please. To me, that means within the next month, year, etc. This guy is smoking too many birch bark doobies in Finland or maybe the long winter has caused the onset of dellusions.
