Basically, speaking from an economics perspective, RIM has less to gain from aspiring to be a top notch camera producer compared to other OEMs where people expect good cameras like Sony Ericsson or Nokia.
With that said, RIM may change their tone for BB10. We'll see when the phones launch.

To me, either way, I am sure it is going to be more then acceptable. I think there has definitely been a decline in digital cam sales thanks to a lot of the good ones that are available on cell phones nowadays. I also think that the manufacturers of cams know this, which is possibly why cams on phones are getting better since most people like the convenience of only carrying one device with them. I would tend to think that cams on phones will only continue to improve. For what it may or may not be worth, I was discussing this with my boss the other day, and he spent over 20 years with a well known cell phone company. He told me that it is all in the software, or the majority of it is anyway. I am sure Z10 is going to have a lot of useful cam apps for it. I already saw at least one posted on the forums here, and I was pretty impressed with the results. If the cam app "Timeshift" works well in the Nokia phones to which I heard it was pretty impressive, shows that it is not buggy or doesn't lag, providing Z10 is a stable O/S which I know it will be, would prove that if there are any glitches it might be some minor compatibility issues that will be able to be tweaked for optimum performance, so it runs flawlessly or as close to flawless as it possibly can

We are talking about RIM creating a product that is on par or better with the market place, not releasing something half a$$ed

You can't have it both ways.. does the camera need to be good? even great? yes.. people use their camera phones now.. a few years ago it was an option, now its a daily necessity, so it needs to take a good picture for posting on facebook or twitter or even instagram (shudders).. but does it need to be THE BEST CAMERA EVER ON A MOBILE PHONE!!!!!??? Personally I'd rather keep the phone at a quasi reasonable price point and take the 2 thousand dollar DSLR I already own out when I need to do some real shooting at 16MP to make billboard ad's.. if everyone is ok with a $900+ phone, then sure.. it can have the absolute best of EVERYTHING..

I'm cautiously optimistic and personally rooting for RIM

Keep in mind you are also comparing a device using 1GB of RAM with a device that has 2GB of RAM, newer OS (as well as fully functional). The camera, even in the early demos of the real device people have gotten, is not laggy.~S_A
