After all, it's Xiaomi that's going to put an end to the cameras!

Xiaomi was already growing a lot when the Huawei still reigned in the field of photography. But it looks like it's stronger now than ever. Maybe because right now it's the big Chinese giant. That said, the possibility of smartphones replacing regular cameras has often been talked about. In fact, everything indicated that the first to achieve this feat would be the Samsung. But after all, it seems that Xiaomi will be the one to put an end to cameras.

Xiaomi is working on a smartphone with a 200 megapixel camera that will be released next year, and the Chinese giant promises unprecedented quality. By the way, this is a work that started with the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.

O leakster Digital Chat Station which usually always reveals very interesting things said that the improvements to the innovative camera that Xiaomi will release in 2022 are remarkable. However this equipment will come with a processor Snapdragon 888 plus. Eventually it could be the Xiaomi Mi 12.
But is it really the end of cameras due to Xiaomi?

From the perspective of professional photographers with sophisticated equipment, the answer is clearly no. You will never see professional photographers using smartphones as your main chamber at weddings and sporting events. But what about amateur photographers? What about parents, teenagers and everyone else? Can a person with little or no training do better with a smartphone than with a DSLR? This can already happen!

It's true that our smartphones don't offer the range of a 200mm telephoto lens, but what it lacks in terms of range it makes up for in spontaneity. People use smartphones everywhere. With cameras it doesn't always happen.
A DLSR with a 200mm lens will be great in many scenarios, but it will also be heavy. With the smartphone, just take it out of your pocket and take a picture.

It's true that it will take some time before we have the real sensors resolution on smartphones. Even with this 200 megapixel camera from Xiaomi. However, most people don't need that much resolution unless they're going to print the photos at poster size. If you print the images at a normal size, the photos look great when taken in decent light. If you want to watch them on your laptop or on TV, it's equally well served.

Plus we have the convenience. When we finish taking a photo with the smartphone, we can immediately edit the images in Lightroom, publish the best ones on Instagram and backup your photos to the cloud without having to remove a memory card or connect a device to the computer. In a DSLR, more steps are already needed.
Xiaomi wants to dominate the megapixel war

This isn't the first time Xiaomi has gone further into the megapixel field. I remember this company was the first to launch a 108 megapixel camera on the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 which was released in 2019.

It is true that initially these sensors had some problems with focus and exposure. But it was resolved.
