CIPA reports an astonishing minus 35% in system camera shipments for February 2019

Buckle up dear readers: In February 2019 Japanese camera companies did ship 35% less cameras compared to February 2018. This is much worse than I would have expected. If that trend continues expect some companies to complete drop out of the camera business!

This is worrisome if you consider Nikon and Canon just launched their new systems and you would have expected to see some meaningful sales. Sony on the other hand did only launch one single system camera in the past 13 months. Maybe they are slowing everything down because of the horror market?
