An interesting read on how Apple might be in the future digital camera arena.

But, what I can see happening, with or without Apple's input, is a third-party manufacturer creating a whole line of cameras with an iPhone dock at the back instead of an LCD. That way, you could have your pick of lenses, processors, and sensors, while still having all the app access, iCloud and AirPlay support, and mobile broadband and Wi-Fi. Paired with an app to act as an interface for camera control, you could have the ultimate connected camera.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

I can't see too many people buying that as the system would be very limiting and tied down to the cpu power and storage of a specific iphone model. THey could make their own camera system that just has iOS embedded, but that would be a bit risky and require some long term commitment. I think continuing down the lines of the ipad/phone tether or wireless integration would be more feasible as it would just require a little bit of partnership from existing brands with limited hardware changes.

Samsung is adding wifi to their NX line with the recent launch. Maybe next time they could just go full android. That would be interesting.

The author talks of them partnering up with someone - what does he think they did for the 4S camera? It's a Sony camera.

Yeah, there are guts from lots of companies in Apple stuff, but I think the Author meant partnering on a "real" camera.

Could we jailbreak it to get more megapixels and a faster frame rate?

Conceptually, an iphone could just be the computer controller and LCD for the camera... the body itself could still contain all the main features, such as shutter, sensor, shutter button, lens mount, mirror (or mirrorless), card slot(s), frame rate ability, ISO control, etc. It would be possible, of course, to record RAW to the memory card slot on the main body and jpg to the iPhone so that the user could share it immediately.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

I'd buy a camera from Apple, if it is a full frame mirrorless. ;)

Apple never does a me-too product, and all suggestions they came up with are me-toos. There's a reason why they're just columnists rather than working at Apple.

I'd never buy such a silly thing, well I'd not buy a camera from Apple at all, but plenty of people sadly would.

That's a good one! All of Apple's products are "me-too" only in a stylish case.

Apple seems to do a good job of picking the best, or most marketable, features from other places to put into their me-too products. And that's not a bad thing, IMO.

I like and use many Apple products, but a dedicated camera isn't going to be one of them.
