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.

How *dare* Canon make DSLRs that vastly outsell those live-view-only (mirrorless) cameras. :-)

Not to worry though, Canon mirrorless cameras are #3 or #2 in worldwide mirrorless market share. :-)

I'm not buying an iPhone until it offers 5D photography. :-)

According to some (sexist) camera company commercials, females only take selfies and snapshots of their restaurant dinners.

In reply to:

M Chambers: It's a pretty steep price point for Canon trying to attract customers to their mirrorless market.

At the bottom of their mirrorless line, Canon has the US$450 M10.

In reply to:

cosinaphile: idiocy not to have an integrated evf..... canon cant buy a clue ..... but neither can nikon

that how the contraction canikon makes the most sense

If a buyer wants a built-in EVF, Canon offers the M5. If a buyer doesn't want a built-in EVF, Canon offers the M6. Giving buyers a choice is a Good Thing.

I suspect that many people who grew up doing smartphone snapshots don't care about viewfinders. They are used to taking photos without them.

ScottD1964: Really Canon, an 18-55 f4-5.6 is an upgrade? You need to be looking at Fuji's all metal "kit lens" 18-55 f2.8-4 if you're thinking your new plastic lens is an upgrade.

Good grief.

The new Canon kit lens is designed to be "20% smaller than its predecessors", and to be affordable.

Link | Posted on Feb 15, 2017 at 22:15 UTC

The Canon M10 is way less expensive than this camera. :-)
