Casio Will No Longer Make Compact Cameras, Says Nikkei: Casio


Japanese website Nikkei has reported that Casio, a brand which many associated with affordable and pocketable cameras, has withdrawn from the compact digital camera market. 

The Japanese brand said they have seen a decline in digital compact camera sales which they do not see will increase again so they're turning their attention to 'high-value camera products'.

Casio released a number of innovative cameras over the years, including the World's first digital camera to use a ceramic lens, the Casio Exilim EX-S100 (in 2004). They also released a digital camera with 1000 shot battery life, as well as a number of high-speed digital cameras, that could shoot at 40fps at 10mp

Back in 2015, the camera company turned its attention to 'selfie cameras' where the lens, screen and frame could be rotated into various angles and later on, the TR-M11 'beauty camera' was introduced along with a tough camera called the GZE-1 but it seems even new designs couldn't help Casio survive the digital compact camera market.
