It's not really surprise.
It's already happens.
All you need is good smartphone with 4K camera and couple of service to edit images, and you can be already a good photographer.

Do you think to sell cameras will be reasonable for good price? At least you will never make such a great photo with smartphone.

This is already very noticeable, because it is better to buy a phone with a good camera and install a couple of applications. Why spend more money on the rest of the equipment?

What you recommend to do with camera stuff then? Canon or Nikon are still better quality than any smartphone camera.

Have you seen the galaxy s 10 or iPhone x. They got such a great camera setup, which make it really possible that it will affect the digital camera market.
