The future is here…almost

I am writing this on Sunday 29th December having just watch the technology programme ‘Click’ on BBC television. One of the stories featured a Sony mobile telephone with a 20 megapixel camera, not unusual you may think bearing in mind the rate that technology progresses these days. What grabbed me was an additional lens for the ‘phone. I don’t think it’s interchangeable in the conventional sense as we photographers understand it but it did appear to fit onto the telephone body, what’s more it looked like a very handy zoom. It gets even more interesting because the lens contains the ‘camera’ workings as well, it doesn’t have to be attached to the ‘phone to take pictures. It can be up to 10 metres away, is connected by wi-fi and can send the image back to the phone. As I said back on the 16th of November “how long I wonder before it’s a complete reversal, a camera that lets you make calls, perhaps it’s out there somewhere”       Another step nearer ?
