Nikon 1: Do Nikon listen to their customers?
8 months ago

There is a long thread on this Forum about why Nikon 1 is failing - over 130 posts so far. Question is 'Do Nikon listen?' and if so 'To whom do they listen?

130 or so posts on a thread on this forum may not make a ripple at 'Nikon towers' but a post from a website like 'Thom Hogan' just might:

http://www.sansmirror.com/newsviews/the-nikon-1-head-scratcher.html

Thom repeats many of the arguements made on this site ... but if you read his blog it is clear that he actually loves the N1 system ... as most of us who actually own it do! And he has put his finger on the two main elements of Nikon's lack of understanding viz;

a) Why a 1inch sensor does not really matter for most customers and why Nikon have failed to get that message accross

and

b) Why a higher price requires a full feature set - or conversely with the current feature set the price is too high.

worth a read remembering that he can possibly make a difference wheras I doubt any amount of our rantings ever will....
