byThom: Innovative way to encourage Nikon to create RAWsumers

Nikon specialist Thom Hogan has found a creative way to "encourage" Nikon to produce a RAWsumer or two. Scroll all the way to the bottom of this post talking about the Nikon D700, and you will find a list of slogans "encouraging" Nikon through comedy to wake up and reboot the Cooplixies and give them some RAW power!

Great idea by Thom! As you can see from our list of RAWsumers going back to 2002, the last Nikon RAWsumers were the 8400, 8700, and 8800 in 2004, which was arguably the "golden year" of prosumers, with a record 18 RAWsumer models.

On the "golden year" of 2004, we've had the 8mp 2/3" sensor RAWsumers, which includes the three Nikons mentioned above, the Minolta A2 and A200, the Canon Pro 1, and the Olympus C8080uz. Also the unique 5mp 2/3" Panasonic LC1, but also the 1/1.8" Sony sensor models (Canon G6, Sony V3, Olympus C7000, etc) along with the Fuji SuperCCD models (Fuji S20, E550, etc). Note that we haven't forgotten the Sony F828, but it was announced in late 2003, although it was obviously a hot camera in 2004 and beyond.
