NYT: Only Canon, Nikon and Sony will survive?
« on: January 01, 2014, 07:58:06 PM »
Interesting article from December 20.  Says smartphone selfie-shooters are not embracing the mirrorless bodies in the way it was hoped they would take to a somewhat smaller setup.  Perhaps they will eventually leave off trying to make a "kinda smaller" camera that is too small for most serious shooting, but still too big for selfie-phone man, and keep making cameras that are the proper size for 2-handed shooting. 

Also says the Big 3 will endure but the also-rans like Panasonic, Pentax, Olympus, and even Fuji don't seem like good bets going forward.

Personally I hope Fuji at least makes it.  Original sensor tech and an elegant package.
