Yes, one company is a distant second to many companies that aren't making any money...

Android phones are the new flip phone. I bought one for $30. It came with Spongebob Squarepants ear buds...
(Laughs).

Boris, you're talking about a saturated market, that even Apple has discovered when its shares hit $671 in 2012, with a lack of iPhone, Mac, iTunes and web services innovation since - including failed "low end" handsets , with declining market share in tablets, too.

The threat to Samsung's global dominance won't be from an ageing Apple, scratching its head in the post Jobs era.

It's from a wave of Chinese manufacturers doing Android, not iOS.

IMHO, Pentax have done well as a minority player in a rapidly shrinking DSLR market.

It would be easy to produce excellent products at a loss, like HTC does in phones.

Yes. Ricoh Imaging

Their CP+ schedule is quite interesting:
?????????????????<???????>?PENTAX RICOH IMAGING
There's an on-stage discussion with Kitazawa from Ricoh and a Ricoh-friendly photographer called Tanaka about the future of K-mount and GR. There's another item about new products with a title like "Collecting light from any angle", which I believe is a reference to the variangle display on the new K-mount camera.

What light does a vari-angle LCD 'collect' ?? It's an output device.

Well it is rumored thath the new Rebel 750D Canon Eos will have a 24mp sensor. That's kind of innovative (for Canon )
haha, right, that even could be considered as a revolution by canonists


Btw, let me remind myself that Panasonic C-M1 is real innovation in smartphone jungle, with it' 1" sensor

The big rumor for canon is a 5dmk4 with a 50 mp sensor. That would shake things up I think, even if its going to be higher than d810 in price...

So, Adam just posted the new lens sale from B&H.

Only DA and DFA lenses. No FA (Limiteds, 50 1.4), and no DA lenses that are based on older full-frame designs and cover full frame (like DA 35 2.4, 50 1.8 and DFA 100 Macro).

Could it be that the FF is really knocking at the door?
