Glad you enjoyed it.

However, being old and cranky and having lived a fair time on this earth, I have become very cynical of the media. As they say, don't let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Typical sensationalism. How else are they going to get people to read their articles and therefore garner advertising space?

People want and need DSLR's, therefore there is a market and therefore Nikon and Canon will survive.

Good thing you're not the CEO of Nikon or Canon It's that type of hubris and short-term thinking that destroys companies.

You misinterpreted the reason for the post. It was in reaction the the death od the DSLR, not the reason for them to introduce different technologies. DSLR's will live on, it has nothing to do with not saying that other technologies will emerge. Get your facts right before jumping to conclusions.

e.g.

"People want and need film and film cameras therefore there is a market and therefore Kodak will survive." (nope, failed to change with the times, outmoded by digital cameras)

rrelevent to this discussion.

"People want and need a physical keyboard on their phone therefore there is a market and therefore Blackberry will survive." (nope, outmoded by touchscreens)

"People want and need video rental stores therefore there is a market and therefore Blockbuster will survive." (nope, outmoded by Netflix, Hulu, Redbox, etc.)

Irrelevent to this discussion

"People want and need a piano in the home therefore there is a market and therefore Aeolian-American Piano Company will survive." (nope, what was once the world's largest piano company was outmoded by the radio and later television)

Irrelevent to this discussion

"People want and need horsedrawn carriages therefore there is a market and therefore Buggy Whip Mfg. Co. will survive." (nope, outmoded by the automobile)

Irrelevent to this discussion

etc. etc. etc.

Times are-a-changing: today all of these things (and a lot more) fit in your pocket, in one device:
