And speaking of the possible disappearance of the camera as a single-use still-picturetaking device, check out "The iPhone Fashion Shoot" at FStoppers. Photographer Lee Morris shot model Olivia Price in the studio with the whole fashion protocol, from hair stylists to retouchers—but using an iPhone and a pair of $50 floods from Lowe's.
Of course he was interrupted by a call from a telemarketer mid-shoot, but there's a price for everything.

Featured Comment by Edward Taylor: "This may not spell the end for better cameras just yet. And these portraits from an iPhone do not surprise me at all. When I first started reviewing cameras, I used to test them out in the studio. That was a mistake. It turns out that the results of those tests were not reflective of the relative strength of the test camera. In the studio, with controlled lighting, and particularly when photographing a human, almost all cameras look pretty good. (Believe it or not, portraits have far less detail than most things). Take the same camera out into the real world, and the picture is much different. I love my iPhone, but in most circumstances it cannot compete even marginally with better cameras."
