Nikon, In STUNNING Volte-Face, Cancels All Three 1″ DL Compact Cameras — TURNING POINT FOR INDUSTRY!
Pertinent extract from Nikon’s
February 13, 2017 Press Release.
What the three (3) 1″ DL models were supposed to be.
Note that the DL24-85 came in black & silver models.
I am SURE that this marks an important turning point in the digital camera industry.
Increasingly capable mobile phones are usurping digital cameras — particularly the consumer, compact cameras such as this. People can’t be bothered to carry a camera when they can snap pictures with their phones.
Digital camera sales, last year, had already declined by over 30%.
So, FINALLY the Japanese camera manufacturers are tightening their belts.
Shame. I had SERIOUSLY thought about getting the Nikon DL24-85 as my compact.
