Camera Phones and the Future of Digital Photography


Tech News World has an interesting article that examines the rise of Camera Phones and their impact upon the wider Digital Photography market. Camera Phone sales boomed incredibly in 2003.

'Market research firm In-Stat/MDR, a division of Reed Elsevier PLC, found that vendors shipped 50 million camera phones worldwide in 2003, a dramatic increase from the 18.2 million units delivered the previous year....

Camera phones now deliver about 1-megapixel resolution, which does not provide enough clarity for even a high-resolution 3"-by-5" photo. Camera phones with 2-megapixel capabilities are starting to hit the market, but observers think the devices eventually will have to support 3 to 4 megapixels to deliver the resolution customers desire.'

The article examines some of the newer applications for Camera Phones, including in interior decoration, law enforcement and journalism - as well as some of the limitation of camera phones, including small display sizes, manipulation of images, lack of features, privacy concerns, not being able to use phones in all situations and lack of options with batteries.
