2011 Predictions

Any thoughts on what cameras will be like in 2011?

A few of mine:

1) The long awaited successor to the Fuji F200EXR
2) Propagation of backlit sensors - Samsung already has their own backlit sensor

3) RAW mode on compact cameras! Samsung has endowed their newest superzoom RAW mode.
4) More N8 like phones
5) Kodak releases the P880's successor ;).

I think we'll be seeing more medium format digital cameras.

I predict that:

Glass will continue to be the most popular substance for lenses.

A newuser will come to DPR soon asking which is the best camera to buy. Rinse, lather and repeat...

There will be at least one new camera model from at least one of the camera manufacturers....

I forgot to add we will be seeing the Ricoh GRD IV.

And more mirrorless cameras :p.

And more lens for mirrorless cameras :p.

Is anyone waiting for this? I'm really surprised Fuji is hanging onto making even P&S cameras since their sales are so low. They've already discontinued their digital SLRs.

2) Propagation of backlit sensors - Samsung already has their own backlit sensor

3) RAW mode on compact cameras! Samsung has endowed their newest superzoom RAW mode.

Prices of digital cameras are continually falling. New units of new models for entry level dSLRs can be bought for $500 which is half the price they were selling for 8 years ago. So taking inflation into account, digital cameras have never been cheaper to buy!
