photog4u: Long live Fuji-kon!

@noirdesir Yes, last fiscal year Nikon "did inventory write-downs/write-off in Semiconductor Lithography Business" (quote from Nikon) , so that's the division where the problem is.

In their Imaging division, Fuji's cash cow is their instax cameras. Previously, Fuji said that their annual sales (!) "exceeded 5 million units".

According to 2015 rumors, Nikon bought Samsungs camera division. Oh wait, that never happened. :-)

farandhigh: plastic vs plastic

The frames of Glock pistols is also plastic - light and durable.

"We've found that Dual Pixel Autofocus gives Canon cameras an incredible advantage when it comes to autofocus in video." -DPR

When Canon adds 4K to their lower-end cameras, they will "have it all", as far as video goes.

justmeMN: CIPA figures also show that 64% of ILCs shipped this year were DSLRs, and 36% were mirrorless.

@cosinaphile: "further in the rest of the world like europe and japan mirrorless is gain traction faster than in the usa"

This year, in Europe, 71% of ILCs shipped were DSLRs, and 29% were mirrorless, so they aren't exactly on the mirrorless bandwagon either. :-) Even in Japan and Asia, more DSLRs were shipped this year than mirrorless.

TwoMetreBill: CIPA is shipments, not sales. The conclusions in this article, while possibly true, are wishful thinking. Fake news.

The CIPA figures are for 33% of a year, so it's too early to draw conclusions about the year as a whole.

gphome: The future is mirrorless, everyone sees it, as shown in the sales

The future is mirrorless, but I live in the present, so I don't care. :-)

The biggest loser in this trend is Nikon, with its dormant-to-dead Nikon 1 line.

Canon M doesn't get much love on DPR, but I understand that they sell quite well in Asia.

On article 2017 Roundup: Enthusiast Long Zoom Cameras (275 comments in total)

Nikon should get the (USA) "Homer Simpson D'oh! Award" for releasing the poor selling KeyMission, and killing the promising DL line.

(In this category, Nikon's entry would have been the 1" sensor DL24-500.)

The Nikon DL line is much better than what Sony has to offer. Oh, wait...

On article Video: Nikon D7500 first look (416 comments in total)

It sounds like a very nice stills camera, but my understanding is that (video) Nikon's Live View AF is pretty bad.

In reply to:

TN Args: If Canon are so slow to produce mirrorless camera/lens systems, imagine how slow they will be to adopt sensors that cannot use their existing lenses.

Canon already has some curved image sensor patents, so it's something that they are looking in to. That said, I doubt that we will see a commercial consumer product from anybody any time soon.

brycesteiner: Microsoft can add this to their wildely popular Windows Phone.

My understanding is that Windows Phone was a good product, crippled by lack of developer/app support.

Alternate headline:

Sony still third globally, and is so sad. :-)

justmeMN: "The company says it currently has 14% of the ILC and lens markets" -DPR

Nikon projects a 23% ILC unit market share this fiscal year, so Sony isn't even close to being #2.

"Always expect the unexspected"

Your mean Sony selling their camera division to Nikon? :-)

In calendar year 2018, Nikon might actually make a competitive (larger sensor) mirrorless camera, which would increase their ILC market share, even if just a few percentage points.
