    An advance perhaps, but the tagline to the article:
    "Time to ditch that heavy DSLR? Maybe in a year, year and a half"

    And then in the article:
    QUOTE
    Whitehorn doesn't believe that smartphone cameras will replace digital
    single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras – for a while, at least. "We're trying
    to match the performance of dedicated cameras where one piece of glass
    inside it costs £3000 alone," he said. "We're never going to match that
    in the short term, but we are getting towards those effects."
    ENDQUOTE

    Are silly claims. Unless "towards" includes a few kilometers of
    distance from the truth.
