Report: Nikon to stop making DSLR cameras, withdraws from SLR development after 60 years of history




Today Nikkei reported that Nikon will stop making DSLR cameras and withdraws from SLR cameras development after 60 years of history. Nikon quickly came out with a press release calling the report “speculation” and denying the rumors:
