The numbers are coming in from 2011 and they are very ugly for compact sales. Down over 17%! That is a huge drop; really a titanic shift. Cell phones have finally gained enough traction with their cameras to do real, substantial (permanent?) damage to compact sales. Christmas sales were even more horrific, down over 22%.

Could the reason not be more to do with most people already having a digital camera and not seeing a compelling reason to upgrade? Of course sales will be slower now that the film> digital switchover is pretty much complete.
