Peering into The Crystal Ball on the Future of Camera Sales

We’re streaming daily on Apple PodcastsGoogle PodcastsStitcherPocket Casts, and Spotify! You can also listen to it right here on the Phoblographer.

I will make predictions for camera sales, lenses, and more for the rest of the year. And before I go on, I’ll state a few things. This is partially just for fun. But it’s all based on what’s happened this year. There are major component issues all around the world. Canon and Sony have a major portion of the market, with Nikon right behind them. Then there’s Fujifilm and Panasonic trailing right there. Normally, last year would’ve been a Photokina year, and we would’ve seen major technology advances. But the global pandemic stopped that, as well as the failing Photokina tradeshow. This year, we’re very curious as to what’s coming. So we’re making a few predictions for camera sales.

M4/3 Rules in Japan, Now OM Digital Solutions Needs to Crack the West

OM Digital Solutions and Panasonic need to crack markets in Europe and the US with their M4/3 cameras.

We have always known that M4/3 cameras from Olympus (now OM Digital Solutions) and Panasonic have been hot sellers in their homeland. But, we didn’t know the M4/3 mount was popular enough to take the top spot on the most popular mount charts for 2020. This will come as a huge boon to OM Digital Solutions. It will also give JIP, the investment firm that purchased Olympus, a huge boost of confidence in their acquisition. This is all fine and dandy, but OM Digital Solutions and Panasonic still need to find a way to crack western photography markets. Let’s talk about this after the break.

If Olympus Closes Its Doors, It Will Be a Wakeup Call to the Industry

We know Olympus said that the rumors aren’t true, but we think this is something we need to think about with one of the big manufacturers.

It seems we can’t go a single day without hearing one of the major camera companies is in such bad shape that they are thinking of closing their doors forever. The company in question this time is Olympus. The iconic company that just celebrated 100 years in the industry is apparently in such a financial mire that the writing may be on the wall for them. If this does happen, it will send shockwaves through the industry. It was confirmed by Photofocus that this rumor is untrue, but with everyone’s sales down it seems inevitable that someone will fall.

portrait lenses

Camera sales may be down in some parts of the world, but things are starting to look good in Europe.

All eyes have been firmly planted on cameras sales ever since Canon came out and said they expect the camera market to decline rapidly in the coming years. While recent numbers from CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) seem to suggest Canon is on to something, the data for May 2019 indicates that, in some parts of the world, camera sales have improved. Join us after the break to take a peek at the numbers. Continue reading…

The Canon EOS M50 Is One of Their Most Popular Cameras, But Why?

eos m50

In Japan, the EOS M50 is outselling competing devices at a furious pace.

The Canon EOS M series of cameras have been around for a while, and while they aren’t class-leading devices, and despite the fact that they use a lens mount with few lens options, they seem to be selling rather well in some countries. A recent report shows just how well; the numbers are mind-boggling, but also show why Canon’s financials aren’t exactly making their bank managers happy. Join us after the break to take a look at the numbers, and to see why perhaps the M50 is selling better than anyone anticipated. Continue reading…

Camera deals Canon EOS RP

Interchangeable lens camera sales decline yet again showing that Canon might be right.

As we have all heard by now, the camera market seems to be in somewhat of a free fall. In the first two months of the year the interchangeable lens camera sales held steady in the month of January, but took a sizable hit in the month of February with shipments down by 29.3% compared to the same period last year. The results for camera shipments in the month of March have just been released by CIPA, and for the most part they do not make for good reading. Join us after the break to see how camera shipments fared in March 2019. Continue reading…
