Cameras are electronic goods now.

A fast moving fickle market where trends come sweeping in and clear away the established order.

VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, Walkman, iPod, iPhone, PC, laptop, iPad. Blackberry, Nokia, Eriksson, IBM, Compaq, Atari, none of the losers saw it coming....I suspect several camera manufacturers will be caught napping too.....

The difference that I see though is that all of those products really depends on a massive mainstream market for success.

Digital as it stands today on the other hand is already bias towards the more serious user, even say a D3200 or Nikon 1 buyer is likely to value photography much more than most of the market.
