As usual Personal View (Click here) did a great job summarizing in graphs the Japanese camera shipment data (contains exact number of shipped cameras manufactured by Japanese companies). And there are two important news we can learn from the January report:

1) DSLR shipment dropped down to the lowest level since two years.

2) While mirrorless shipment to EU slightly increased (from 39,483 in December to 48,321 in January) and America where constant the shipment in Japan surprisingly dropped in Japan.

It’s really a challenging time for all companies producing system cameras! I am now wondering if sales will ever go up again…
