  • Nikon's pre-WW2 history is actually much more directly implicated in Japanese military affairs than your post implies. Nikon has always been coy -- perhaps deceptive is a better word -- about that ...
  • I don't know why this piece of misinformation seems to never die. Nikon is an independent, publicly traded corporation and no single shareholder holds anywhere near a controlling interest in the ...
  • Indeed, that is a nice summary. Thanks for the link, Bob.
  • It's not that far-fetched. Nikon sells a lot of 193nm immersion lithography machines to Intel -- these are the machines that are currently doing 14nm manufacturing. That's not being done with EUV ...
  • I recently did a lot of the same reading as you did, Bob, just to see where things stand these days. You of course know all this, but for others reading this thread, my short summary is: EUV may -- ...
  • Yes, and I would add the third crucial element, which was a perceived favorable market opportunity, especially the price/performance/value proposition/market population quadrad. In other words, ...
  • "Canon have" is quite customary in British English -- the British commonly give companies the plural form of a noun. In American English, we almost always treat companies as singular entities for ...
  • Well, I don't want to get into an extended debate about crime rates, but New York City (I live in Manhattan) is not the most dangerous place in America by a long shot. Places that most Americans ...
  • If you have time for a day trip, one of the greatest ancient Mesoamerican cities is just 30 miles outside of Mexico City. It's called Teotihuacan, and it's utterly fascinating. It was founded 100 ...
  • Two summers ago, my girlfriend and I spent a week-and-a-half staying in a friend's apartment in Mexico City with sightseeing and walkabouts every day. Once, we felt ourselves wandering into a ...
  • Exactly. And it's not just prints where this matters. A pro shooting for publication won't keep clients for very long if he/she is always shooting too tight to give the art director some layout ...
  • Forgive me for thinking that Nikon personnel may not have actually said what you are claiming they did -- that, in fact, this is your extreme interpretation of some comments that were in reality ...
  • Replied in bad numbers
    Unfortunately, you're no better with numbers than the OP is. Your CIPA screenshot shows the figures for all digital cameras -- i.e. including fixed-lens point-and-shoots. That's what "Digital Still ...
  • Replied in a British-ism?
    Although DPReview is now based in Seattle, I believe that much of their editorial staff is British and therefore speak and write that quirky dialect of English that the English use. So I wonder if ...
  • Yes, this is a good point. In relation to documentary photography's place in the larger social and cultural mix, something great could eventually develop out of the upheaval that the Internet is ...
  • I didn't say documentary photography was disappearing; I said it was disappearing from the public discourse. Different idea. So far, I don't see any evidence that those channels give photographers ...
  • I agree with you that nobody is owed the opportunity to make a living doing what they love in this, the most imperfect of worlds, and the small minority who are pulling it off should count ...
  • Is that what Canon was telling us in 1940 when it diversified into the X-ray camera business, and yet the company's consumer camera business had 7 decades of growth ahead of it? Is that what Canon ...
  • Right. Buying used gear for about 50% of what it's worth on the open market is standard practice for camera stores. This has been true in the U.S. since time immemorial. The dealer obviously needs ...
  • Replied in consumption
    Are you seriously arguing that the historically unprecedented expansion of the global middle class, and the concurrent contraction of the worldwide population trapped in poverty, is not going to ...
