I agree with Jediboy.
Last weekend I was out in Amsterdam and pretty much all of the people who were obviously tourists were toting cameras - and what I found more significant was that a large number of them were DSLRs - albeit mainly the consumer end of the market.
So rather than cameras being on the way out I think the market for them will grow along with the technology. Now that most DSLRs offer live view and video recording at reasonable prices the general public are now seeing this as the answer to all their needs.
I must admit I did see quite a few phones being used as cameras, but mainly by teenagers, and I did actually see one 'mature' couple using their camcorder to take stills.

If you have one watch you know what the time is. But if you have two you don't know which one is right. The more advice you get the more confusing it becomes...
