Still not a replacement for my real camera but my how far cell phone cameras have gone.

A generation old but my new to me Samsung Note 8 is doing well

Nice pics. I love the Note series.

Much of modern cell phone photo prowess comes via computational photography. Fortunately for us, this is something Sony has publicly stated this is something they are pursuing for their cameras. I suspect the recent advances they are making with autofocus capabilities have stemmed from their efforts. It will be interesting to see what happens, although I do hope lens makers continue to produce high quality optics as well as, instead of replacing them with, computational capabilities.

Cell Phones have completely replaced point and shoots.

Still not a replacement for a good ILC but it is good to know that I can pull out my phone and get respectable shots
