    The whole point and shoot market is like the mp3-market before the ipod.

    B/c I would agree – there is a market for point and shoot cameras, just as there is still a market for tiny flashlights, mp3-players and compasses (and all the other things smartphones can do).

    A point and shoot can not only have genuine advantages over an average smartphone camera (optics, sensor size) but there are also certain demographics and consumers that still like dedicated cameras.

    Having said that: just putting out the same stuff over and over again is not enough. Such a camera has to go with the times and integrate seamlessly to other devices. It’s not so much that is has to be able to do everything (e.g. apps), it just has to do a few things very well.

      “The whole point and shoot market is like the mp3-market before the ipod.”
      You mean the iPhone. The iPod was just another MP3 player. Successful, but just another Bozo on the bus.

    I am picturing a representative from nikon announcing this and their voice sounding like the adult voice in Charlie Brown. A mumble that can’t be understood.

  • Aldo

    azalea pink… I’m in.

  • Ken Elliott

    Surely this means the D400 and D750 are next! ;D

    • Spy Black
