Only Big Three Camera Companies Will Survive
Dec 30, 2013

And, sadly, Panasonic is not one of the three. I think it makes sense, even though I don't like the prognosis. According to the New York Times, only Canon, Nikon and Sony will remain after the dust settles.

I can see Pentax and Samsung eventually packing it in. Maybe Olympus and Fuji, too. I'm hoping that Nikon, the smallest of the big three in terms of diversity, will not become a takeover target. But, if it is, let it be Panasonic or the other way around.

By the way, that glaring spelling error in the link should not survive!

Here's the original article in the NYT:

If life is, indeed, a journey, ask yourself how you can make it as interesting as possible, so that at each day's end, you can give a good accounting of what you have learned.
