Innovation for innovations sake is a losing game

Dear Board,

In all honesty, who here could not survive with a 12 to 16 Mpeg camera?

Eventually the early adopters stop adopting all the innovations. Who really cares among the majority of users that you can take a photograph using only the light provided by lightning bugs so long as you have a $ 4000.00 camera body and it's corresponding $ 6000.00 lens.

I have newer used cameras, but my most reliable camera remains my Canon EOS 1DMKII. It focuses better and faster than almost anything I own. I take pictures of animals and birds and get some very good ones out of it because of how well it performs. I know there are days when it will struggle to acquire focus because of less than perfect light combined with f4 and f5.6 lenses, so on those days I stay home.

Eventually they, meaning camera makers, will learn that there is a realistic limit to how much you can dump on people before they say they are full.

Then the coal company came with the world's largest shovel
And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man.
