Have you noticed?

The entire non-pro camera market is reeling from the onslaught of cell-phones.

Yet the camera manufacturers (ALL Japanese) are investing a lot in new models to fight over a declining market. I'm amazed at the pace of new product releases.

Meanwhile, my Google Pixel 2 takes amazing photos in good light. And NONE of the major cellphone manufacturers are Japanese. They tried but were pushed out.

When industrial Japan pulled itself out of the ashes of WW2, camera makers were a big part of that.

Maybe there is a nationalistic pride in what we are seeing?

I'm not a Japan expert (although I've been there many times), so maybe wrong on this.
