Japan: These are the most sold cameras in 2013.


BCNranking publsihed the exact Japanese camera sales number for the whole 2013. Mirrorless interchangeable camera market share is 40% (DSLR has therefore 60%). Within the Mirrorless world Olympus takes the lead with 29.1% followed by Sony 26.4%, 14.2%, Panasonic, Ricoh imaging 9.8%, 9.34% Nikon, Canon 9.25 percent.

That said the Olympus E-M1 and the Panasonic GX7 and Gm1 have come to market very late. And at least in USA the Olympus E-M1 seems to sell very well according to Amazon US ranking (click here to see the list).

P:S:: New Years deal: Plenty of Gold Box deals on Tripods ongoing right now at Amazon US.

New Panasonic GF design spotted!


Egami spotted a new Panasonic patent showing a Panasonic GF camera design. Actually it’s a real picture of the camera more than a design :)
As you see the camera is quite different from the previous GF models. I guess the new GF camera will be announced in Spring just like it did happen every year since the first GF camera introduction.

Just don’t know how much sense it keeps the GF series when you have a much smaller and better designed GM series. The only way to make the GF interesting is to offer it for an incredibly low price…
