Just be sure to set it to auto-upload to all social media sites, as well as a public photobucket.

Or you can decide to use a better camera than your POS Android smartphone, and give it more capability than previous decent cameras have had.

Or you can just complain about how useless new things are.

Makes sense. The market for point-and-shoots like this has largely dried up thanks to increasingly good smartphone cameras. If the camera companies want to stay competitive, they at LEAST have to improve their shiatty software and UI.

Yeah, I'm surprised this hasn't been done sooner.

Eventually, smart phones will become decent all-in-one devices, but they still have a way to go. I'd like to see a real optical-zoomable lens, and better flash, along with the usual camera goodies (a smart camera outfit would team up with a smart phone maker to make it happen as a co-branded phone).

On the flip side, a full-function media player, capable of streaming from DLNA (for people with home media servers) for video and music, and outputting to HDMI.

Camera makers might also consider, if unwilling to team up with smart hone makers, to at least open source some of the camera interfaces, and allow customization and greater control. The idea that users could greatly enhance their functionality with the purchase of a better app would be appealing for many casual users, and a must-have for enthusiasts.

It is hard to say what is going to happen to the point-and-shoot market. Obviously camera phones are taking a huge bite out of the segment, but the optics in most camera phones still suck. Until we start seeing more models like the Nokia 808 PureView, you're going to have people who want something better than a phone for their vacation pictures but still want it to fit in their pocket.

I do think that dedicated camera companies will increasingly be restricted to mirrorless and DSLR markets. But we could also see a surprise where a camera company jumps into the smartphone arena with models that have great lenses and larger sensors (1/1.5" or even a 1/1.66"). I don't think companies like Samsung or Sony want to cannibalize their point-and-shoot lineups, so I'd expect it to come from a camera company instead. And Apple currently has this weird hard-on for ultra-slim handsets, which doesn't leave much room for good lenses with decent optical zooms.

FTFM. Also forgot that the 2/3" sensor would be good if you didn't want something as big as a 1/1.5" but bigger than a 1/1.6".

I wonder how hard it would be to write an Android app that on the surface was a game, but whenever launched also scanned the camera's memory for any recent photos showing lots of skin tones and sent them somewhere.

Not that anyone would ever do that...

Difficulty: define the human variation of "skin tones" in a mathematical way.
