Canon's sales are way down... WHY?

Interesting and good points. 

"Canon isn't innovating fast enough"  --- I so agree with this.  

He makes good points about Sony gaining market share and photographers are more becoming videographers.   Which isn't a strong point of new Canon cameras.

I feel so out of the game… being neither a video
shooter nor a Canon user and never will be.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Well Canon as I see it, has not had anything that has WOW'd their users in some time.  It's easy for them to blame the market, but the market isn't the answer.  Sony is doing great, and gaining more market shares.  Canon just needs to do something extraordinary and put in their time.

I wouldn't worry about it.  Canon sales are down simply because they are transitioning into a new market and their old market is getting a little soft in certain areas.  Once they get their route nailed down, they'll be back on top of it.
