small thing: not 2002, but 1997 maybe

I suspect a similar chart from 2002 would have had a 2% slice for digital cameras and there would be some fool loudly proclaiming that "digital got spanked."

Your point is well-taken, but I'd adjust the date backwards about 5-6 years. Digital cameras were already in very widespread use among news photographers by 2002.

Digital cameras first made a significant impact on news photography in 1994 when the Kodak NC2000 began shipping. Associated Press photographers were the first to go into the field with it and several of them made important and award-winning pictures with NC2000s starting that year and the next. Adoption of digital cameras by the news media was very fast after that.
