CIPA Production Shipment Study January - May 2009

Look at this picture, which is from a german article about the study.

compared to 2008 January - May, there ist a decrease of production and shipment by 37,9%

In Europe the number of sold DSLR units stays almoust the same (-2,5%) but the average value oft the sold units dropped dramatically (-36%)

That means that the cameras get cheaper, which is nice, but also that more and more lower price segment cameras are sold.

In the amateur / lower price segment there is a big price war at the moment in europe. The market is flodded with cheap models by the big electronic companies.

I think pentax does well to concentrate on semi-proffessional higher price segment.
