Samsung Leaves the Digital Camera Scene

7 April, 2017 Samsung


Samsung has made another major decision recently, according to a report by The Investor. In a business which is seeing even the biggest names in the entry level shooting equipment business waver due to a lack of demand, Samsung has decided to call it quits. The last digital camera manufactured and released by Samsung was the NX500 and that was back in the year 2015! Therefore, this decision doesn't really come as a surprise, but more as a confirmation to what we already expected.



If you are thinking that this is a direct result of smartphone cameras being more popular than entry level digital cameras, you are thinking right. The quality of smartphone cameras have improved dramatically over the years, particularly in case of flagship handsets from Samsung, Apple and LG. That doesn't necessarily mean that Samsung will not be producing ANY standalone cameras though. The Gear 360 line-up is in full flow and it is expected that Samsung will continue to explore the imaging capabilities of a 360-degree camera with the Gear 360 cameras well into the future.
