Atlasman: The industry (SLR) is stalled by Canikon and their lack of interest in producing mirrorless systems: the future of photography.The old pond is drying up!
Bye, bye all the manufacturers who are not making any profit on their cameras. Bye, bye those whose return on capital for cameras is poor. And, bye, bye sites like this that will have fewer and viewer visitors. The only market left will be smart phones and high end pro cameras. And, what sites and camera manufacturers can survive on just pro cameras?
Dennis: “We’ve centralized our ideas around cameras but can change our approach to offer products to that bigger market.”“We want to create a product that will change the concept of cameras. It could be a non-camera consumer product.” “Rapid expansion of mobile devices is a change in business environment given to us. Our task going forward is to find an answer to that change.”
Sounds like they're more than ready to produce something revolutionary. As soon as they figure out what it is.
Just like polarid and Kodac tried to do. Unfortunate, Nikon's camera division has not shown any expertise outside of its own space. Further, whatever they try, they will be up against the likes of Samsung who has shown the ability to enter other spaces quickly, effectively and mostly profitable. In my opinion, Nikon should significantly cut their expenses and ride the dsrl space until the very end or sell the division (maybe the best idea.) And, if Nikon is having future problems, what do you suppose smaller brands are going to face.
wayfarers: Nothing from Fujifilm series X offering? Why?
This must be a filler article, because it basically only shows cameras that were reviewed by someone (the writter) in the past. For instance, the canon sl1 has not been reviewed yet by this web site, but its sensor is the same or better than the other canon cameras mentioned and it is smaller and lighter.
Kinematic Digit: Great review. I use the Pixel Kings, and was looking at these Odins to control groups as the Pixels don't do that in TTL. Pixel tells me that group control is coming via a Firmware update, but at this point Odins have the advantage here.
Waiting for someone to come up with something that goes on my 580's that canon radio device will work with.
