Pentax to Reduce Film Compact and SLR Production

June 2, 2004 | Mark Goldstein | Film | Comment |

Imaging Resource are reporting that Pentax are planning to reduce the manufacture of their 35mm film compact and SLR cameras and focus on digital instead. They will continue production of professional medium-format film cameras. This breaking news was originally posted on the news page of Pentar Corp., the official Russian distributor of Pentax products.

What do you think? Are Pentax making the right move by switching their attention to digital, especially when the likes of Canon and Nikon have made no such announcements (yet)?
