A view from outside the camera industry

How Canon, Nikon and other Japanese camera companies are fighting for survival in the Smartphone era - Tim Hornyak for CNBC

What do you guys think? Tim Hornyak seems to be a freelance tech writer based in Tokyo. He's so completely unfamiliar with the camera industry that he gets Konica Minolta and Sony mixed up.

Yet his numbers provides an outsiders view of the camera industry that makes the camera divisions of Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon (and others) seem insignificant. It makes me wonder why these companies even bother to make cameras at all.
