Apple may use bayonet mounts for interchangeable iPhone camera lenses

QuoteQuote:
Apple is investigating the use of bayonet lens mounts one of the most common lens attachment mechanisms used in modern photography in its iOS device lineup, suggesting the company is mulling interchangeable lens accessories for its iOS device lineup.
A report in March suggested the upcoming iPhone 6 design featured a protruding rear camera much like the fifth-generation iPod nano, while a dubious rumor suggested Apple is working on an interchangeable lens system for its mobile device lineup. All current iPhone models sport a camera flush with the back case.

An iPhone with interchangeable lenses (zoom plus a few primes) would pretty much kill the compact camera (which is dead anyway ...) and quite possibly Micro 4/3 and Nikon 1 as well :-)

I am amazed at the quality of images from the iPhone - esp. low light. No wonder various iPhone models take the top 3 camera rankings on Flickr.

Here's one taken on my ride on Tuesday morning - this is Bobbin Head about 10 minutes before dawn. It was nearly pitch dark, and the photo makes it look much lighter than it really was - taken on my old iPhone 4S:


PS - I rode down Bobbin Head in total darkness - that was kind of scary. May have to wait for end of daylight savings before attempting another ride :-(
