If Kodak, which is the leader of imaging sensors for still cameras, throws in the towel, and it's looking like a possibility, that just might be what happens. In fact, as I hear it in the industry, in five years there will be digital video cameras that are good enough to take stills off for newspaper reproduction. I somehow doubt it, but if I'm wrong, that could be the death of digital still cameras. They'd go the way the early video still cameras. Not able to get quality up to justify their prices before something superior comes along that is a major paradigm shift.
