Crunching the Numbers: Four Insights We Can Glean from Camera Sales Data

Feel free to use this image just link to www.rentvine.com

With every passing year, the digital camera sales dataset offered by the Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) grows more comprehensive. These records are made available to the public by this coalition of camera manufacturers which includes Nikon, Canon, Fujifilm, Sony, Sigma, Ricoh, Olympus, and dozens of other recognizable brands. Since 2002, they’ve been improving and increasing the scale of their database, which now separates digital cameras into fixed-lens, mirrorless and DSLR categories, and reports sales figures for different regions.

It sometimes seems that commentators are primarily interested in the CIPA data to prove just how far up a creek camera manufacturers are so far this decade. But these depressing pronouncements are just scratching the surface. Here’s some other things the data shows: Read more…

Canon Japan Releases the Rumored ‘White Kiss,’ a White Version of the Rebel SL1

canonwhite1

After a couple of teasers from Canon Korea and Canon Japan, the promised ‘white kiss’ camera officially arrived last night. Unfortunately, it seems the camera turned out to be the least exciting of the options rumor sites were bandying about: a white version of the Rebel SL1 that is otherwise unchanged.

The camera claims the title of first ever white Canon SLR, and for now is only set to release in Japan. Interested buyers in the region will be able to pick one up starting the 28th of November in a kit with either the standard 18-55mm lens, or a matching white version of the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens. To find out more, head over to the Canon Japan website by clicking here (translated here).

Either way, we have another camera to anticipate, and Canon is teasing this one with the words, “Canon will start from the white world.” Read more…
