PC Watch publish digital camera sales chart

Sep 8, 1999 at 04:00 GMT

PC Watch Digital Camera Sales Charts: In Japan, the Fuji MX1500 still holds the number one place closely followed by the Olympus C-2000Z (they're selling a barrel load of these!) and the Sanyo DSC-SX150. Amazingly the ever faithful Olympus C900-Zoom (D400Z) hangs on for fourth place. The Nikon Coolpix 950 surges on the back of new stock.
