Friday News Roundup

I have to think the answer is “Yes.”

I saw Digital Photography World’s article about both Nikon and Panasonic officially announcing they will no longer be developing compact point-and-shoot cameras, and my initial reaction was, “Someone still makes point-and-shoot cameras?” (apparently Canon and Sony do), along with, “Everybody is already carrying a great point-and-shoot camera – one that will do things even the most expensive point and shoots can’t (like make a phone call), and if the rumors are even in the ballpark, in about a week or so, they’re about to get way, way better. Here’s a link to the article – worth a read.

They’re good people). Give it a quick look (below):
