For a camera company to make a "new" camera they have to truly have something new to offer. Can anyone tell me what new feature they would want on a new 135 SLR? If I had to guess what was going to happen next here is what I would say. First those disposable cameras are going to get better than they are now, not by a lot, but expect to see them have a few nifty features that are more than just gimmicks figure indoor, outdoor, and flash settings. Better entry level point and shoot plus type cameras with zoom, flash, focus, the ability to add filters, and several program options like a pocket digital point and shoot. As for a "new" SLR my guess wouldn't be something at the pro level, but somewhere in the middle. My reason for believing this is that the problem with film right now is that younger people are not taking it up because their choices are disposable cameras, "toy" cameras, or high end pro cameras and not a lot in between if they want to buy new. Used is another story, there is a lot of really good used stuff out there, but there is a lot of junk on the market as well, why risk it. Thats my blurry vision on it.
