For years I have visited Imaging Resource as one of the main and best sites to read reviews on photography cameras. For instance, when I purchased my Pentax K10D, it was in big part thanks to the positive comments they posted about it.
Well, this week I was shocked when I found out that their most recent review is... of the iPhone 4 camera; which says a lot about the status of photography, about the quality of the iPhone 4 camera and about the merging situation of plenty of pocket devices.
After all, as they say, the best camera is the one you always have in your pocket; and for loads of people, it means the iPhone 4.
Regarding the future, recent rumours suggest that Apple has chosen an 8 megapixels camera to be used in the forthcoming iPhone 5. I don't know about others, but my current compact camera is a Fuji Finepix F30 of 6 megapixels, which is more than enough for 99% of my pictures. If the iPhone 5 gets a reasonable price, and if its camera is good enough, maybe it might become my next compact camera as well.
