Japan Camera Market for 2019
1

Interesting read from Thom Hogan, based on BCN data from Japan.

http://www.dslrbodies.com/newsviews/internet-declares-sony-the.html

# that surprises me:

  • Full Frame Market: Sony 38%, Canon 36%, Nikon 24%, Others 2%. This is DSLR and Mirrorless combined.  since Sony doesn't have significant DSLR offering while Canon and Nikon do, this means Sony % of mirrorless market is even larger than these #.
  • DSLR and Mirrorless combined: 10.4% Full frame, 89.6% APS-C.  I'm surprised how much larger APS-C market is.  But APS-C margins is probably lower than Full Frame.
  • Break down by FF/APS-C and DSLR/Mirrorless: 56% APS-C Mirrorless, 34% APS-C DSLR, 6% Full Frame Mirrorless, 4% Full Frame DSLR.

Again, these # are for Japan only.  And Japan is more skewed toward mirrorless than USA.
