Considering that the 47% voters sticking with their current phone includes non-iPhone users along with content users of older iPhone models, that’s a lot of people who want the iPhone 4S!

This week’s poll question is: Will Camera Phones Replace Compact Digital Cameras?


Cameras in phones keep getting better and better. It’s pretty easy to find a phone with an 8 megapixel camera and a flash, and they’re not even that expensive. And while almost everyone will buy a cellphone, cameras are considered to be more of a luxury. So do camera phones mean the end for the compact digital camera? Do you still spend money on regular cameras, or are you content with those that come in your phone?

What do you think are the pros and cons of each type of camera? Is the megapixel count really what’s important? If not, what do you consider to be the important things in a camera? Let us know!

    I use my phone-cam for info shots, such as a part I need to replace from a hardware store. Everything else, I shoot with my DSLR.
    Phone-cams are fine for some situations, especially when you don't want to carry a camera, but if you want to see her eyes, use a real camera.

    Yes. For me, they already have. I have my phone and a DSLR -- nothing in between.

    Somewhat yes, it really depends on how the photos are used nowadays.
    And at the same time compacts are able to "replace" DSLRs in some instances.If your photos are all going online, you'll take it with your phone even thou you might have a compact camera just for convenience sake.The thing that a phone can never really do now, is taking low noise night shots.It will change as sensors get better and better, but not yet.

    So if it is a comparison of convenience then yes.
    But if it is a comparison of quality then no.

    For quick snaps and the occasional 'good shot', yes then the camera on a phone is more than enough, however if you want a REALLY good shot, you do need a few more options and quality that only a camera can provide.

    In my opinion, of course.
