edit: 2011, not 2010

Sorry, in the paragraph quoted below, I miswrote 2010 when I meant 2011.

Point-and-shoots shrank 8% unit/20% dollar volume in 2011 . And ILC cameras overall were up 22% 6% in 2011 .

All of this is very good for the traditional camera companies, which are under increasing pressure in the point-and-shoot market from smartphones. The point-and-shoot digital camera market is already shrinking, down about 8% in unit volume and almost 20% in dollar value in 2010. Yet, the camera makers are making a very substantial market in ILCs, which are more profitable to begin with and will never be under threat from smartphones (probably never ). ILC cameras overall (mirrored and mirrorless together) were up 22% by unit volume and 6% by value in 2010.
