And so it has begun, the great retraction of overgrown industry.

A few years ago it looked like Fujifilm was interested in serving other/new customers, whereas now it appears they look at sales data and plan on selling more of the same to the same market. Wow.

For a company to stare up its backend and call it the future is a very scary thing. I predict the end of Fujifilm camera manufacturing within five years.

Good. I hope it gets a lot worse. They've been crapping all over my life for a decade or more. There are too many players in the game, all contributiing to the fiction they'd like us to believe is reality. I'd like to see some majors fold and a whole new paradigm take over this industry.

If ever an article shrilled shill this is it.

The sick thing about this industry is the fundamental flaw of its basic economics. They have huge staff and manufacturing run time commitments, whores to these two forces, thus new cameras are made every 3-6 months, needed or not.

Incremental improvements are carefully camouflaged as advancements in order to feed the greedy beasts of production time and staffing overhead. The whole system is truly broken.

If I can work remotely and offer meaningful contributions to society then camera manufacturers can do the same. Ultimately they will have to or go the way of dinosaurs.

My response? Screw them. I haven’t bought a new camera for years. Extreme? Yes. Am I happy about it? You might be surprised to know I don’t miss taking pictures in the way I thought I would. I’m actually more connected to living.

P.S. If you had the balls to call them out for who they are your job would actually be credible….and the world a much better place for it.

Reality bites, especially when you haven't been listening. It is patently obvious these are NOT the executives to lead the company forward.

Incompetence must never be rewarded, and when it is the company deserves to fail. After all, they've earned it.

Any CEO who does not truly understand the message behind these numbers should be, or ultimately will be fired. There is no cream left in this cow. A sad testament to the seriously flawed concept of releasing new (and often totally pointless) products several times a year.

The insightful company that commits to making 'real' cameras in each form factor, such as Black Magic has done with the Pocket Cinema, could indeed own the industry. And they would have earned it.

Waay too bad you seem unable to filter out digital fakes.

Without starting a flame war....the origin of some of the burned houses look quite suspicious. I would imagine there are more than a few who would gladly put in an insurance claim on a house they can no longer afford.

In reply to:

algoa456: Thank you for a really lovely sequence. I suspect you have other sequences that could be made into a second film probably just as lovely.

That said, I wonder how you would have felt if a grizzly had indeed popped out from a clump of trees? I daresay you would have regretted the frisson of danger you were enjoying.

Grizzlies are remarkably silent for such large creature. And occasionally a bad tempered bear gets it into its head to not be put off by strange noises, but arrives to see what the fuss is about. Ever hungry they'd happily eat you given half a chance.

Most people are lucky in the wilderness. Occasionally someone is not.

Absolute Rubbish.

A little too much bear fear. THAT would have been worth doing some research on.

These comments deliver a consistent stream of negative press for Panasonic, perfectly accurate too. They do make great razors, though. Perhaps they should leave it at that, their camera expertise is in the toilet.

With all these 'fantastic' specs is there anyone, ANYONE on planet earth who can provide the firmware version? If it's the same tired old dog Panasonic has seen fit to flog all these years then this is definitely a forgetable model.

What a joke. The U.S. military having budget problems. I can't stop laughing.

Contraction in the hyper-inflated, artificially sustained camera market is looonng overdue, years and years at least. A self inflicted wound is the reason it occurs to such a significant degree.

It's a disappointing fact we're drowning in camera options, have been for decades, yet most of them are only slight variants of each other and the ridiculous waste of resources continues without a second thought.

I've come to strongly disregard the attitude this industry foists on its buying public. They simply do not deserve our continued, unquestioning support.

On article Nikon reshuffles management structure (242 comments in total)

Business Development and Research & Development are fourteen and sixteen boxes down, respectively. I suggest bumping them into the top five. Perhaps then we'd begin to see the cameras they are truly capable of making......and that many would be interested in owning.

Meanwhile it's just business as usual with the cream at the top not taking any financial hits while the rest of us take the brunt.

I wish google was that easy to scrub.

If the past five years of lame Panasonic imaging gear is anything to go by, these three guys could be replaced and never missed.
