Would Sony's collapse be good for photographic industry?
4

So let me make some simply statements and contemplation: Sony is really large global corporation with enormous available funds for development. They are pushing engineering advancements heavily, but it always look as if they themselves don't know whether those advancements are usable for practical photography at all.

Their business rise is bolstered by heavy marketing that is focused on paper specifications, and that also pushes the other companies in the same direction, while there is so little actual need for such pushing, and constant offer of new upgraded cameras that nobody really needs actually degrades camera market.

So, if Sony camer business would fail, they would still survive as a corporation, they would continue to produce camera components, particularly sensors, and seel it to other camera companies according to that companie's needs, not according to current Sony's desire to win the edge in techonological advancements.

In such circumstances camera manufacturers would be relieved from technological war, and would be able to focus on user's experiences, and to offer new, less technologicaly improved, but much more pleasing cameras.

Does it make sense?
