Would my version of a cheap APS-C camera sell to a niche market? Niche markets can be created by high prices; my camera would not be a niche camera, just good value.

You have this the wrong way round. Niches are small segments of a market: your proposal would appeal only to a small niche of the camera market so yours would be a niche camera.

The reason many niche products are expensive is that they are sufficiently attractive to justify premium prices: indeed, it's this ability to command premium prices that lets them survive. As your proposal offers nothing that can't be obtained cheaper elsewhere it wouldn't command a premium price (although, as I explained elsewhere) its price would be higher than what you consider good value.
