Camera Phones

I went to my daughter's Christmas Show at school today and was surprised by the number of parents using their mobile phones to take pictures (about 20% of all cameras).

I had rather assumed that camera phones would not replace other cameras, merely provide more opportunities of taking photos. But if you are going to take a camera anywhere, you will take it to your child's school play. It would seem then that these people were using their mobiles instead of a more traditional camera. That is what surprised me.
