CIPA released the April data and the trend is confirmed: The camera market is doing better than the previous year. While the compact camera market is on par with the previous year the system camera market is doing much better than 2016.
And if you look into the details of the data you can spot how the mirrorless market seems to be the real reason for the growth! DSLR shipment went down 10% while mirrorless shipments were nearly twice as much compared to April 2016!!!
