A digital camera just like any modern digital technology is not going to be passed down to your children or grandchildren in 25 years

Do you really think they would even want a mass produced digital point and shoot camera ??

Thats like expecting someone to want my 7 year old flip phone or 500mhz Pentium 2 laptop.

Technology changes, things quickly become obsolete. It makes zero sense to produce a product with a short tech lifespan to be able to last for 25 years because that just raises the cost of a product that will have next to no value in just a few years time.

Damn it all. And here I was keeping my 8-track tape player for my nephew. My IBM-XT too,.
