Olympus dumps P&S cameras, Who's will follow them?
May 16, 2013

It appears point and shoot pocket cameras have fallen out of favor and are gathering dust on store shelves while consumers have turned to their smart phone cameras instead.

Now Olympus has just announced they are stopping production of P&S cameras.

I wonder which camera company will be next to abandon the P&S camera market. Any guesses?
