I know. Digicams are great for camera manufacturers, because they get to sell you a whole new camera every 2 or 3 years.

My digicam is a Sony DSC-S70. It was top-of-the-line when new, and cost $1,000.

Now, it's crap. I could get a better replacement for about $300 or $400. And everything's better - better CCD, more resolution, bettr focus and exposure, less shutter lag.

I thinkit's best to think of these as $500 or $1,000 investments that will last 3 years. If you buy Canon's $1,000 digi-SLR, it will probably be junk in 3 years. I personally don't think the improvements will ever plateau. We'll keep getting CCD improvements that make better colors and sharper images with less light.

Hi MarshallG

I very much agree withyour observation in the future trend of digital cameras. This is what technology advancement had done to speed up Obsolescein everything electronics. Perhaps this is also the strategy of the reputable brand camera producers.

Hence, it appears that the high-end DSLRs will be for the very well-offs only.

I will have to be contented with what digital camera I now purchased and only look at new models every 2 or 3 years down the road.
