Re: Global Shipment of Digital Cameras Down

The reason is simple to understand. Everyone's p!$$€* off with digital and they're turning their attention to film cameras. No wonder the second prices are on the up. Grrr!

More seriously, the digital camera has become an established mature product, so manufacturers are chasing a diminishing demand by adding minor improvements to attract those poor individuals who are incapable of saying no - the pure gear-addicts. Additionally, the camera technology in mobile phones has improved so much, of late, that many find the 'camera in the pocket' to be more than acceptable, and one you rarely leave the house without.
