Exactly...that was the point of the original article. All traditional camera companies face an uncertain future with all the competing "good enough" products out there. Some companies are just less vulnerable in the long run that others.

I think it has to do with their inability/unwillingness to adapt to the new data. They try old business practices in a new market.

For example, releasing cameras with disabled features just so they can charge more on the high ends. Or not being innovative enough. Or trying to dictate what the customer wants. Etc..

Nikon/Canon don't have the monopoly anymore, that's their problem. They have to adapt or become dinosaurs.

As someone else said, look up the meaning of monopoly.

Canon and Nikon have taken the major share of the market. That resulted from the difficulties of making the transition to digital, where many companies simply did not have competitive cameras and Canon and Nikon cleaned up. It is possible that the market may even out, and smaller players grab back market share, although Canon and Nikon now have the advantage of a much larger income, allowing much greater investment in new products, creating a virtuous circle for them.
