Samsung to axe digital cameras and camcorders in UK (update)
In a statement sent to Amateur Photographer following reports circulating online, a Samsung representative said: ‘We quickly adapt to market needs and demands.
‘In the UK, we have seen a gradual and sustained decline in demand for standalone digital cameras and camcorders and related accessories.
‘For this reason, we have taken the decision to phase out the sales and marketing of these products.’
The UK statement added: ‘This is a local decision, based on local market conditions.’It's a shame really. Lucky I just got the 60MM and the 12-24MM :-)
The news follows reports that Samsung planned to discontinue the NX1 in Europe.
