Default Huge 2mp camera with optical zoom

Maybe our 6mp sensors of today will be like this next year:

And if we are really lucky we can even reckognize shapes behind all the
noise. What the heck. Its like computers. People look for GHz not actual
performance.

Enjoy your 6MP phone.

That won't change the physics behind photography. The more light you
gather the more are the chances of getting a good image. And as I
understand, the bigger your filming plane (film or sensor) and the
bigger your lens (light gathering hole), the better is your image
likely to be.

IMHO, the need to shrink phones and have a big lens/sensor to capture
good images are opposite directions. Something, that'll never make good
cameras out of phones. Yes, it is very much possible that the quality
of images from phones might be so *acceptable* to general users that
they switch to phones exclusively for shooting.

Personally, I want a hot-pluggable chip in my head to snap and store
anything that looks interesting ;-) That will always beat carrying
around any equipment (phone/camera) on convenience and speed.
Cheers,

Siddhartha

But surely the technology will advance to allow the sensitivities we have
today in dSLR sensors to made much smaller in a few years time?

Cute. Doubt that the image quality will be all that great, though.
There's a reason telescopes are big, and it has nothing to do with
technology.

Agreed, why the need? Especially since all I have seen, compress the
image beyond what I would waste any space to save.

though.
