Re: Camera producers death spiral


I can\'t vouch for Thom\'s data since I don\'t have access to it, but he claims to have talked to all kinds of executives/insiders and to have strong tech and camera industry experience. I can only judge his logic and the data he presented, which looks good to me.

It is clear that there\'s overcapacity in the camera market - though I suppose one could say Thom exaggerates by judging black friday sales, but I\'d like to see contradictory data - and I do fear that smaller companies with high volume pretentions (Panny and Olympus) might be buried in a race to the bottom.

And there\'s no way consumer cameras (P&S, low end DSLRs) make anything close to a good profit margin, especially if bought at discount. (that being said, I\'d imagine the tops of the line have good profit margins).
