    The lengths people go to to shoot the messenger for news and facts they disagree with.

    Gaslighting a discussion thread that you're not interested in. I do not expect yes men in this forum but neither did i expect people with no interest in the topic chiming in.

    It's discussion forum. People normally discuss topics of shared concern. As you're not interested then why even participate?

    Sayonara: Nikon Moves All Camera Production to Thailand

    At the rate of cost cutting I would not be surprised that Canon and Sony will be the remaining camera brand still selling product by year 2025

    Don't get angry at me for presenting facts that do not interest you or are disagreeable. The drop of sales I am pointing to will impact the sale price of cameras as we can see now in the present and most likely the future too. As volume reduces the per unit sale price of cameras will only go...

    Think of it this way. You bought your camera & lens for X amount some time ago. When its time to replace it with a future model will you be happy to pay double that? Here's a graph of what has been happening since 1999. Numbers dont lie... prices will sky rocket beyond many's means.

    Thank you for expanding my point further. As for deep space photography it is very possible that supply of deep space hardware evaporated due to supply chain disruption while demand for it either dipped a bit or remained stable. Hence a seller's market for deep space hardware. Given enough...

    Fewer people will be able to camera, lenses and accessories. Just hope the price increase won't be too expensive for people like me. ;)

    For the past decade it has been a downward trend YoY It matters to a lot of persons. People who invested more than 1 lens or accessory to a camera body whether they're a working photographer or hobbyist. To make it relevant to mods I've noticed about half a dozen other photo forums that shut...

    I agree with all your points. I see mirrorless to end up having at most 2 brands. Canon and probably Sony.

    It matters for these reasons The brand/system you use may increase in price of its current/future products as economies of scales drop close down operations in countries with weak sales cease having after sales support to repair your camera when it gets damage file for bankruptcy and...

    The article I linked to has all the COVID-19 details you crave for. I am not one to regurgitate it like a mama bird to its chicks as I do not see anyone here that infantile. Now the question is will it stabilize or exceed 9 million units shipped for all 12 months of 2021 or 2022? Or it will it...

    It's a cause of concern. Either the brand will shut down and you cannot have your camera repaired when you it to be or their future products will be more expensive than you last remember.

    https://www.dpreview.com/news/55975...s-mostly-recovered-from-its-covid-19-downturn And I personally expect November-December 2020 to not ship more than 2 million digital still cameras (DSC). A grand total of less than 9 million DSC shipped globally for 2020. This would be the worst year...
