On article CP+ 2017: a taste of the show (17 comments in total)

Did DPR do a CP+ interview with Nikon executives? I'm curious to learn what they have to say for themselves.

"...its slender design..." -DPR

It's 24% thinner than a Sony RX100 IV.

brycesteiner: Wow! A new model for what should be included in a firmware update. Great job Nikon!

They spent of all of their 2016 R&D budget on Nikon DL. :-)

"The D5600's body is essentially unchanged from that of the D5500..." -DPR

Nikon could have at least thrown in a 100th Anniversary strap. :-)

"We want to be number one in the overall ILC market"

2016 was Canon's 14th consecutive year of being #1 in worldwide ILC market share, so that's not exactly a "stretch goal". :-)

Nikon statements about what they are going to do in the future are meaningless. They couldn't even follow though on a product line (DL) that they already announced.

I thought that disqualified someone from being a CEO. :-)

Yes, everything is a big news media conspiracy, LOL.

Photoman: At least Nikon ain't as stagnant as Canon...or are they? Fuji and Sony are the leaders of the future and that scares Nikon and Canon. Remember Kodak, Polaroid, Agfa. Once big but now very, very small.

Sony is a distant #3 in market share, and Fuji trails far behind that. They aren't very "scary" companies. :-)

Cool "industrial art".

"Thus far, the company has exceeded its $15,000 goal with nearly $53k in funding and 27 days remaining in the campaign." -DPR

I'm surprised by the demand. It's not as if there already aren't already a bazillion different camera bags on the market.

Did DPR do a CP+ interview with Nikon executives, like in past years? It would be interesting to see if they can find something positive to say. I suppose the biggest unknown is what they plan to do in the mirrorless sector.

Since Nikon is following in the footsteps of GoPro with KeyMission, NIkon's next product announcement will be a drone that crashes. :-)

Shlomo Goldwasser: The problem is Nikon can't stand out and corner a particular segment of the market. It tried to be a sailing ship and appeal to the masses, but the seas are increasingly ruled by Canon. It tried to be a starship, but there are technical limitations for Nikon, and besides, space is owned by Sony.

There is no niche Nikon is trying to fill that Canon and Sony do not do better at right now. Even Pentax has more brand distinction now as it delivers great specs for a low price with the K1 etc.

Nikon needs to go on the offensive more and undermine its competitors. A small full frame bare bones mirrorless for around 800-1000 dollars, and I, together with many others, would be sold.

I don't understand why Nikon's Japan-only DSLR market share (BCN) is only 32%, compared to 63% for Canon. Based on the quality of their cameras, Nikon should be doing better than that. Maybe they have horrible marketing/advertising. I don't know.

Nikon doesn't know how to throw the proper Anniversary Party.

Send in the clowns, the management clowns,...

"Nikon has released precisely zero information about any of these special editions and accessories..." -DPR

That's probably because they will never ship, like their DLs.

I suppose the Nikon booth also includes a display of their dormant-to-dead Nikon 1 system, and their sales flop KeyMission cameras.

They all look like very nice cameras. In spite of whining by the anti-Canon crowd, Canon continues to vastly outsell the ILC competition.

I still have two of them, although I haven't used them in years, the K1000 and the ME Super.
