In 2012 we have seen some advancement in the field of cameras. Even mobile phones have presented some upgraded versions of their digital cameras. Compact high performance cameras became very popular as well as the touch screens which are more and more responsive by the day. Applications for cameras are most innovative when it comes to streamline editing process, uploading as well as sharing the images and videos are being regularly upgraded and enhanced and we have seen some great new features of Wi-Fi connectivity and smart phone remote camera management. With all the technological improvements that have already been introduced we are all very eager to see what the manufacturers will present in 2013.
One of the first things we might expect is the improvement in the 3D and ultra HD image capture. Many cameras that already exist have made some improvements in this field but it is likely that they will continue developing this technology. Of course, it would be ideal to see the leading companies come up with the more affordable printing devices for these images for non-professional users as well as with some displays that will be able to show the images without using 3D glasses.
Fast Wi-Fi functions are increasing in availability and hence more and more people are interested in cameras that have the option of using this advantage. Also GPS connectivity is something that is becoming increasingly popular. They are faster now when it comes to connection but they still use lots of power of the camera and are not very practical in that way. That is something that we should certainly expect the manufacturers to improve. Same goes for the Wi-Fi services that are currently very power-consuming so it is likely that new systems will be developed to deal with this issue.
Nikon and Samsungs have made some advancement in integrating smart operating systems with cameras but it is a rather new thing which means that there is plenty of room for improvements and that’s exactly what we should expect to see in the near future. Combining these two (Android system and camera) is certainly something to look forward to and it promises a lot. It is most likely that all the other leading companies will also pay attention to development of this system and that in a year from now it will be more sophisticated than it is at this point.
Voice control is nothing new in the phone technology and it has proven to be very practical. It makes the use a lot easier and more convenient so it is logical to expect that this system will find its way to enter the camera world. This is already a developed technology so it doesn’t require much research and development and it will offer the greatest remote control option for taking pictures or shooting videos.
When wearable cameras entered the market a whole new window was opened. In 2013 we expect to see further developments in this area such as constant update of photos to the social networks with GPS location, tags and face recognition system.
