    Canon CEO: Camera market will contract for another 2 years

    Jeez - well didn't COVID-19 deliver a double whammy ! The sales figures leading up to that weren't pretty, but now we have seen Olympus bought out, and the profit projections for some companies constantly downgraded and headed for a sea of red ink. The Olympics has been cancelled for 2020...
