Re: Why Are Cameras Dying Off?

Cameras are not dying.   They are mutating and evolving into smartphones and tablets.

The new craze is the tablet.

There is plenty of talk on how the smartphone is smaller and more convenient than a compact.  However increasing number of people are taking photos with 10inch tablets!!! How is this convenient ?

The tablet is flat so easy to carry, it is easy to hold.  And it is easy to compose a photo on a 10inch screen.  Much better than a compacts 3inch or smartphones 4 to 5 inch and a DSLR s viewfinder.

I suspect nikon may start supplying optical systems to other companies tablets.

The next trend could be tablets with a 200mpixel 3inch sensor.  And a flatish optical lens system supplied by nikon.  no optical zoom, just the equivalent to a 10X zoom using nokias pureview technology.  A DSLR killer ?
