I'm sure that people will find new forms of art, especially in the field of photography from cameras that are able to shoot 24, 30, 60 or even 120fps.

If you don't want 24fps, you don't have to get it...
And, if you do get it, but don't need the full 24fps, then I'm sure you can slow it down like the current 1DX.

The question you should ask is... why do you need 11-14fps (currently offered in the 1DX), but not 24fps?
Canon 7D - EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L, EF - 20mm f/2.8, EF 50mm f/1.4, EF 100mm f/2.0, Custom Cine 50mm & Custom Cine 35mm

I would feel the same as a writer feels about a pen, typewriter, word processer.

The art is in what you take a picture of, science is how you take the picture.

Was the "art" of writing murdered by the advent of a word processer with spell and grammar check?

Will a hack writer like me be able to write better if I use a fountain pen?
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

Originally exposures took a huge amount of preparation to take the picture, and then to develop it.

Did it cease to be photography when SLRs were invented, or later on DSLRs?

Great point.  I am sure there are some who felt that the advent of DSLRs and photoshop "murdered" the "art" of "photography".

In any capture-the-moment situation, like sports, wildlife and action, photographers will love the ability to pick the exact frame from a high speed burst (why do we buy the 1DX?). But for product, landscape, waterscape, architecture, street, portraits etc. it will add little to nothing. And art will still be art, it just may have a slightly different form in some areas.

Yes, fountain pens lay ink down more easily and reliably (once you have it tuned properly). I actually threw out all but a few specialized ballpoint pens once I got a good FP.
I'm guessing you weren't talking about the quality of your script though.
