Sobering Sales Numbers for Mirrorless
Jun 5, 2013

Thom Hogan's recent post on the latest camera sales numbers show a substantial decline in mirrorless sales as well as production.

It is going to get harder and hard and harder for the mirrorless advocate to keep bleating that SLR's are dying when all available data shows that it is mirrorless cameras are in sharp, substantial, and prolonged decline in sales.

One snip:

"The production number for mirrorless in April was only 58.7% of last year, while the production number for DSLRs was 102.5% of last year. In other words, the DSLR camera makers are still making cameras at the same volume as last year, while the mirrorless makers have cut back. This has implications onfuture CIPA shipment numbers. And it's not a one-month trend: the lower-production-than-shipment trend for mirrorless has been going for three months now. Clearly the mirrorless makers have cut back on what they think the market will absorb in terms of mirrorless cameras."

Only those challenged in math, or are super religious will keep arguing that SLR's are dying.

9 years of Fujifilm camera usage, ended by rampant fanboyism.
