Nokia exec sees camera phones obsoleting DSLRs

Nokia logoDSLR cameras will become a thing of the past in the near future, Nokia sales chief Anssi Vanjoki said on Tuesday. This is because of the fast developing technology in cameras found in smartphones, which will "revolutionize the market for system cameras." Cellphones with the ability to record HD videos will be commonly available within 12 months, he says.

Those same handsets will be capable of connecting to users' HDTVs for playback of the content they've recorded as well. A handful of phones have or will have HDMI output today, including even rare conventional phones like the Samsung Instinct HD.

Thus far, a handful of high-end smartphones have neared dedicated point-and-shoot resolutions thanks to eight- and even 12-megapixel cameras. They also have the processing support for higher resolution video and have seen the feature reach some devices, such as the Samsung i8910 and HTC Evo 4G. However, the size limitations of cellphones induce noise and optical errors compared to the larger sensors and glass of DSLRs, and with few exceptions optical zoom has been off-limits.
