I think all the camera makers are about to miss the boat. Kind of like Kodak did with the digital evolution. Compact cameras will sell less and less as digital phones get better. Canon's Powershot N may have been a move in the right direction. But I think the cameras need to be even smaller and "cooler" to appeal to the new generation of users. They need to be cellphone sized with fancy touch screens and operating system, a nice zoom, easy wifi transfer and so on.
On the other hand, I'm afraid that the camera makers won't keep up, and thus prices for our DSLR's, lenses, flashes etc will only go up as they try to keep their profits coming in. Which in turn of course will hurt them too. I find the latest $2,000+ lenses overpriced and unfortunately can't afford them.
