This is at least the second year of losses and this year's are far worse than last year's. Not a good trend line. They also mentioned Sony having four years of losses.

I don't know about other products; but in cameras, Panasonic has some really bad marketing practices. They do have some good products to sell, no question; but they don't make it easy.

Jerry, how many times have we mentioned in the forum that Panasonic needs a better marketing dept. and display presence? Sony is in every store with most of their consumer models. People see them. You really have to want a Panasonic and be willing to buy sight unseen. I just happened to see the FZ10 and FZ20 at a Ritz store in the local mall a couple of years before they shut down. I'd never heard of Panasonic cameras before that.
