Nikon: we don't need mirrorless cameras | News | TechRadar UK
The era of the "Canon and Nikon Mirrorless Cold War"
"Our R&D team is secretly working on it. For now, we build up conventional stockpile. Who's going to pull the trigger first?"
I beg to differ... they don't have everything for everyone...
I had nikon stuff and I was searching a live-view camera with decent fast af and interchangeable lens for my eye condition... and they don't have any.
Well for the last 3 months,
The D3100 has been the number one seller in Japan
"They couldn’t hit an elephant at this dist. . . ."
General John Sedgwick, Union Commander, died: 1864. Killed in battle during US Civil War.
Care to add some other famous last words ?
Alexander the Great,
who had conquered land from Macedonia to Pakistan, died at the age of 33, with his boots on, weeping:
"There are no more other worlds to conquer!"
I think what they meant was "we decided we shouldn't release a tiny sensor MILC"
I think they saw how well it worked when Steve Jobs said "We're not working on a tablet" while working on a tablet.
I think it's a good idea if Nikon decided to ditch 2.7x crop which was rumored. When the cameras become too small, ergonomics are no longer great and such cameras are only good to be used as P&S. Panasonic G3 is already borderline small. Companies should rather focus on producing small lenses perharps with the help of offset microlenses placed on the sensor coupled with software correction of optical flaws.
BTW, Nikon's new P&S P7100 is gigantic! Epic fail for a tiny sensor digicam.
Crappy 'journalism', and a headline designed to drive traffic. The person interviewed did not say that they don't need one. He noted that he believes they 'currently' have something for everyone.
In the end, he added no real information to the discussion - which is what you would expect. It's unlikely that a person at his level, in one market, would be the one to reveal anything substantive.
Just goes to show Nikon really can polish a turd!
Agreed. I see sensationalized stuff like this all the time. But this is classic market dynamics at work, where the industry leaders are slow to move to a new technology while those with smaller shares of the pie are more willing to take risks...
