Nikon S6600 and L620: Worst product launch ever?
11 months ago

Why are they saturating the world with even more tiny sensor cameras? They can't even beat the image quality of some cell phones! Are there not already enough 12x and 14x cheap zooms? And the L620 is really absurd, it has 2010 specs and you can get a used 2010 compact for probaly $50 at most. 18 MP on a tiny sensor is laughable, I doubt the crummy f/3.3 lens can even resolve that much. That's literally all the changed. They need to stop wasting their team with this trash and start making 1/1.7" the absolute bare minimum standard for new compacts and 1" for the P models.

There's no reason they can't make 35mm f/1.4 and 24-85mm f/2--f4 "pro" compacts, and 28-116mm f/2-f/4.5 "enthusiast" compact with 1" sensors. Oh, I suppose there is, that colossal failure of a system they ingeniously called Nikon 1. When every camera in the series needs to be slashed 50%+ within a year or updated within three months because it isn't selling, it's time to cut bait and start over. 1" fixed compacts and DX system compacts. That's what any rational product manager would suggest, too bad none of them seem to work for Nikon.
