The future of cameras


The next generation of cameras to come will merge smart phone technologies and picture taking together in one seamless design concept. I remember hearing such statements years ago however it doesn’t seem that far fetched any more. Leica has recently come to the table with a CMOS 12.1MP sensor design concept showing that this really could be a possibility.

The coined “Leica i9” camera phone of the future would also boast an impressive 8x optical zoom. I’m just wondering what price this would come out at. I’m pretty sure dpreview, B&H and Amazon will be keeping their feelers out on this one. Can’t wait!

Lets just hope that Canon can pick up their game when it comes to merging the two technologies together!



So if you could have any feature on a camera what would you choose?
