Another One Bites the Dust: Nikon Moving Away from Film Cameras

January 13, 2006

Kodak, Canon and now Nikon have decided that producing conventional film cameras just doesn't make sense in this age of digital imaging -- just seems a bit sad when one of the great names in photography (often the gold standard for professionals and amateurs alike) makes a move like this.

Of course it's all about economics, so with film camera bodies accounted for less than 5% of Nikon sales, it couldn't have been a hard decision. Nikon will also stop making lenses for those film camera bodies, too.

Digital Camera Shopping Tip: Go with the Leaders

November 23, 2005

With Friday marking the official start of the holiday shopping season (all those 5:00 AM store openings and early bird specials!), digital cameras still look to be a very popular item on many gift lists.  With that in mind, it’s a good idea to take a look at the leading digital camera companies in the U.S. market.

For the fourth straight quarter, Kodak has maintained its lead over Canon and Sony (both tied for second place) as its market share rose to 21.3% from 19.8%.  Canon and Sony had a 17.7% market share (Sony losing share and Canon gaining.)

Fuji rose to fourth place from seventh (8.6% market share), while Olympus fell to a tie with Nikon for fifth place.  HP was next with 6.7% percent.
