Consumer DSLR's dead in 5 years

For all the naysayers regarding M43 with Olympus and Panasonic, there is perhaps a silver lining in the storm cloud of technological advancement. Misery loves company. Especially company that refuses to acknowledge their own possible demise.

Christopher Chute from market intelligence firm IDC predicts Nikon may be out of business in 5 years if the trend continues.

“You’re talking about a 10-15% decline in DSLR shipments all over the world. Which is kind of shocking because that market’s been growing double digits for almost ten years. Nikon recently said they have a five year plan to address this. And my view is, that five year plan should have come out five years ago. They’re not going to be around in five years.”
