EOS Bodies / Just for Jrista: 2014 Market Data
« on: September 19, 2014, 08:54:34 PM »
You asked for info regarding the latest interchangeable lens camera market. Thom Hogan has done the job for you:

"So I went back to Canon and Nikon’s recent published numbers and the CIPA shipment numbers for 2014 so far and plugged them into a spreadsheet with Sony’s claims and an assumption about Sony’s DSLR sales (which they didn’t disclose). What I came up with was a range of values that went like this:

Canon — 38 to 40%
Nikon — 33 to 35%
Sony — 12 to 14%

...But, overall, it looks to me that we’re still locked into the same basic pattern for unit volume in interchangeable lens cameras that we’ve had since the early 90’s: Canon leading, Nikon following, and Sony (originally Minolta) trailing. At the moment, there’s nothing appearing from any of the three that seems to be going to alter that any time soon."

EOS Bodies / What happened to article on Canon's patent
« on: December 18, 2012, 04:38:48 AM »
Some time ago, CR published a small snippet on Canon's patent for a small OVF with 100% coverage.

The CR report has since then been removed. What happened here? Canon threatened legal action? :)
