Watching the gay abandon with which these Japanese companies roll out extremely marginal digital camera offerings — e.g., Canon Rebel T6i vs T6s — you would NOT realize that they are ALL bleeding money like crazy.

Yes, there is HUGE undisciplined and unrestrained mismanagement. Canon, Nikon and Sony could save MILLIONS of dollars a year IF they would just rationalize their digital camera offerings and concentrate on just providing a few ‘best in class’ products rather than hundreds of hard to differentiate models.

Lets us NOT forget Kodak and Polaroid.

Both of these U.S. companies were iconic pioneering GIANTS. They are basically GONE!

So cameras companies can stumble, badly, and end up in death spirals.

With smartphone cameras eating into digital camera sales on a daily basis I expect a MAJOR shakedown and consolidation of the digital camera market over the next 18 months.


These companies have to play smarter. The current situation is untenable.
