Digital Photography

Big changes in the photography world are ahead for the next year. Konica Minolta is withdrawing from the photo and camera business. They just signed an agreement in July of 2005 to make cameras with Sony.

Pentax has teamed up with Samsung to develop a new generation of digital cameras. Olympus formed an alliance with Panasonic to do the same. Last week, Nikon announced that they were going to abandon film cameras and focus on marketing digital cameras.

Canon maintains a strangehold on the digital SLR market and keeps raising the bar with new models like the 12 megapixel EOS 5D. If 12 megapixels isn’t enough resolution for you then consider the new Hasselblad H2d-39—the first 39 megapixel digital camera on the market. It’s only $40,000.
