A Green Heron and some Thoughts on the Camera Market

A few months back I was talking to some photographers and the subject came up about what cameras people were buying: mirror less, DSLR, full frame, point and shoot, cellphones etc. The data is easily found on the web. Not surprisingly, the more expensive cameras do not sell as well as the less expensive ones and cell phones with cameras. Their interest was peaked by a downward shift in mirror less cameras. Conjecture ensued. I did notice one interesting thing when looking at this data over time and that is that anything new sells well early on. New lenses boost camera sales. Advertisers, I expect, would say any excuse to get their product in the spotlight, even a firmware upgrade can help. I worry about the older companies going out of business like Minolta did. Being a Nikon user, and invested in Nikon products, I hope that Nikon continues to sell products I want with the least amount of problems (Nikon has had a few).
