Last July, Nokia unveiled its Lumia 1020 smartphone with a 41 megapixel camera – it says consumers would be able to “shoot first and zoom later” without affecting quality. More than the camera features itself, I say, the good part here is that – it’s still easy to carry.
On the other hand and this time, it’s Sony’s turn. In their case, the Z1 allows stand-alone lenses that connect to smartphones, allowing them to take higher-quality photos. Wow, this phone already looks like a camera! See that?!
Well, following Apple and Samsung’s patent battles — the war on smartphones’ cameras promises to be a blast!
For consumers, these are good innovations – but then, always try to make things simple from usage to handling to storage – most of all, remember that this is still a smartphone more than another camera; otherwise, manufacturers should just have to re-categorize their products. Makes sense?
