"(M)ore low-end to mid-priced cameras sold in bubble-packs at
Walmart" can easily mean that manufactures will have to lower
prices and/or boost capabilities of high end cameras to hold as
much of that part of the market as possible.

Personally I wouldn't object to a $29.95 camera with 1Ds MkII
performance.

Well, me neither, Bob.

It's just that the market for P&S cameras seems to be quite saturated and the marketing tactic of saying "Buy our Point and Shoot Wonder! Now with 30% more MEGAPIXELS!" seems to have lost a lot of its punch now that the general public is catching on to the fact that more megapixels doesn't mean better 4"x6" prints.
