EDITORIAL: Drop the D Already


Dear Nikon, Canon, and Olympus,

Please drop the “D” from your camera names. It’s 2014. We know they are digital.

That is all. Thank you.

Follow NCN on the Facebooks, Twitters, and that other thing for the latest camera news.


  1. But that would make the Nikon DF a Film camera? O no, confusion!

    If only camera makers would follow IKEA’s lead and name their camera’s after personal and place names… The Olympus Olli system could rival succesfull systems like Ivar and Billy.

  2. You run out all letters soon if you continue this way, your web site will be audio only!? Did you buy a radio station?

  3. But then how would you tell a Canon from an Oly from a Nikon? I know the Nikon has a free oil change at 3000 clicks, and the Canon looks like a potato, but the Oly needs the D because OM stands for “old man.”
