Hi,

I went to Dover, England today, and took some photos with my Wiko Darkmoon and I was surprised, this phone is at 200€ and I didn't expect this, my question is, do you think phones will replace cameras one day?

Surely not reflex, but bridges and compacts, i'm pretty sure.

Also, feel free to critics :)

For a lot of people, they already have. I think phones will replace cameras for people who, prior to digital compacts becoming affordable about ten years ago, didn't bother owning a camera back then. The kind of people that if they had a birthday party or went on holidays, etc, bought a disposable.

Low level hobbyists will still want cameras smaller/simpler/cheaper than DSLRs, MILCs or film; pros and heavy hobbyists will still want advanced small cameras like the Canon S Powershots, or Sony RX models.

There was a boom period for compacts between them being ludicrously priced for mum and dad shooters, to them having less of an edge over phones, that they probably occupied more of the market than is their natural place.

For phone shots, OP, they're quite pleasant. How's the b&w conversion done? Shot like it, or Snapseed etc?

I think this is pretty damn good, OP. Not just for a phone either (pixel peepers may say different). I personally would have raised the highlights in the foreground but not sure what editing tools you had to work with there.

I agree that phones have improved greatly at a much faster speed than cameras lately but I don't think they will ever quite get to a point where the quality and control will match. The advancement will probably start to slow soon and surely dedicated cameras also will continue to improve and stay ahead (at least noticeably enough for the enthusiasts and professionals).

For uses where image quality doesn't matter all that much, they already largely have. They won't replace anything else at this point though, because there's nothing really left to replace. They took out the point-and-shoot market, but they'll never compete with interchangeable lenses because their uses are simply different.

Journalists use phones a lot more often now. I've noticed that Al-Jazeera appears to be using a GoPro for some of their footage now too.

still can't beat zoom lenses

or telephoto lenses for that matter

I've always thought compact p&s cameras were stupid inventions anyway - I'm not sad to see them go.

Nice picture OP

An $80 Fuji still has much better image quality. Phones have a long way to go.
