I disagree, here is why:
- As smartphone’s improve so do dedicated photo camera’s
- Sensor size on smartphone’s are smaller, this means a much smaller dynamic range, compared to a dedicated camera. You can see this especially when shooting in low-light situations (due to physics)
- The range of features is way lower with a smartphone, this will not change in the future either, because a smartphone is not a dedicated camera, with dedicated features. Like applying a setting to a knob
Note: Smartphone’s now day’s shoot as good or even better than the old point and shoot camera’s. The smartphone has completely replaced the compact camera market.
For professional photographers a dedicated photo camera system (in whatever form, now mirror-less in the future who knows) is the way to go
