Where We're Headed: In five years, point-and-shoot digital cameras will be as antiquated as film cameras are now. That's because smartphone cameras will not be digital but computational, able to react almost as the human eye does, to almost instantaneously focus, track objects and adjust to variant lighting conditions. This ability will be made possible by technologies evolved from advances such as Nvidia's Chimera and DigitalOptics’ MEMS autofocus technologies.
Prediction: The lines between still photo and video will disappear, thanks to features like HTC One's Zoe three-second video-still mode. All captured visuals will "move" for as long as the Shutter/Record button is pressed. Instead of having to choose to shoot either a video or a still, you will simply shoot and decide later if the result is a still or video — or both.
