PR 101:

1. Don’t ever point out what your competitor’s product has that yours doesn’t.

2. Don’t ever admit that you made a mistake and you might keep making that mistake in the future.

3. Don’t ever say that you need to listen to your customers more. It is something that every company could do more of. Mentioning it just makes you sound like you know you should do it but you choose not to.

“But some of our competitors, like Panasonic and Sony are adding 4K”

Actually they are not “adding” it. They have already added it. Nikon isn’t showing up to the birthday party late. They simply forgot about the birthday all together.

Aren’t interviews supposed to promote your product and not your competition’s product?

I bet this guy has a Sony A7s and a Panasonic GH4 with the product names scratched off so no one knows he shoots with a competitor’s camera.

mpgxsvcd: The very root of Nikon’s problem is that they have lost some die hard Nikon fans. The oil issue was devastating to their brand. What it did was take some users who wouldn’t even consider switching to another system and make them think twice about staying.

They have always made cameras with excellent image quality. However, some of their customers now question their reliability. In a Professional Photographer world reliability is paramount and all of their recent cameras are geared more towards Pro users.

They really need to convince everyone that the oil issue has been resolved and will never happen again. The statements he made make it sound like they are almost willing to leave it up to chance.

Talk is cheap. He openly admits that it could happen again. If it happens again they will be done.

I hope Nikon survives this simply because I think they have a long history of making a great product.

If they had spent their time making a great mirrorless camera instead of making excuses they wouldn’t be in the position they are in now.

"We need to listen carefully to our customers."

Yes. Yes you really need to do that.

We are going to wait and see if we fail or not. When we fail we will try to make a change but we definitely won’t ever ask our customers what they think we need to do to earn their business back.

" In my opinion, 4K is too much"

That says a lot about where Nikon is heading. It doesn’t matter what he thinks. It is what the customer thinks and right now they are asking for 4K so you need to give it to them or some other company will.

mpgxsvcd: What makes the LX100 a "Point and Shoot" camera. Yes it has an Auto mode. However, all cameras including Full Frame DSLRs have an Auto mode.

The term "Point and Shoot" is what should die. There is no such thing as a point and shoot camera. All cameras have some sort of camera control now.

The more appropriate term is compact or more specifically you can say small sensor compact or large sensor compact.

"Because it is a point and shoot camera. I chalk it up to anything that isn't an interchangeable lens camera."

Then you are very single minded.

I am guessing that it won't be long before the LX100 is banned at concerts and sporting events. This really is a professional video camera even though its lens is not interchangeable.

A lot of people don't realize that the point of a fast wide aperture lens and a larger sensor is to get rid of the flash for most pictures. Sure you might need a flash for a fill flash. However, your phone actually works quite well as a flash if you are in that situation.

This camera doesn't need a flash for most situations like the old small sensor "VERY SLOW" lens cameras did.

Car? Red Dragon? Car? Nope. Red Dragon wins it all the way.

On Size matters: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G7 X article (175 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tariag: It sounds cute, a good alternative to the RX100 III...
But I will keep my G1X II, because I love it's unofficially-bouncing-flash so much.
I they could have included it in this G7X, I would have considered a switch...

Maybe you should practice with the direct flash more then? Other people make it work. The bounce flash option in other cameras is “unofficial” because it wasn’t designed to do that. Those built-in flashes are delicate things. I can guarantee you that a broken flash is worse than a direct flash.

This is a strong camera from Canon. I hope more of their cameras go in this direction in the future.
