Thom Hogan has an article on CIPA mirrorless shipments

Here are the quarter by quarter numbers:

  • Q1 2012: 1,043,846 units
  • Q2 2012: 882,783 units
  • Q3 2012: 876,919 units
  • Q4 2012: 1,456,054 units
  • Q1 2013: 603,532 units

Since you like statistics, below is some other numbers from the Tom's posts.

  • Japan is <10% of the camera market overall. The CIPA & BCN numbers represent only about half of the retail outlets for cameras in Japan. Top sales in Japan are of previous generation products.

"While mirrorless shipments were 57.8% of last year's quarter, DSLRs were 76.8% of last year's quarter. Here are the full set of DSLR numbers:

  • Q1 2012: 3,386,386 units  (3.2 to 1)
  • Q2 2012: 4,265,825 units  (4.8 to 1)
  • Q3 2012: 4,557,378 units  (5.2 to 1)
  • Q4 2012: 3,990,862 units  (2.7 to 1)
  • Q1 2013: 2,600,765 units  (4.3 to 1)

Those numbers in parens are the DSLR-to-mirrorless sales ratio."

One thing is clear, it's a tough time for the digital camera market.
