EU May See Higher Digital Camera Prices
A recent Reuters article indicates the EU is preparing to reclassify certain digital cameras into high tariff categories normally reserved for video cameras. Most digital stills cameras (DSCs) will likely be exempt. The intended target is very high-end - the camera must be able to sustain 800x600 at 23fps for 30 minutes, a performance which most consumer DSCs are unlikely to match.
