Nikon Coolpix 990 - Time "Machine of the Year"
Time magazine has named the Nikon Coolpix 990 "Machine of the Year", they go on to say "This was the year that digital photography finally plunged into the mainstream and the Nikon Coolpix 990 led the way."... "Manufacturers (ALL) shipped an astonishing 5.1 million digital cameras throughout the U.S. last year, up from 3.1 million in 1999. "
* Phil - I added "ALL" to the quote as some people were pointing out that the wording "Manufacturers" was misleading and made it look as though Nikon shipped 5.1 digital cameras. I didn't read it that way myself.
