Canon Sales Going Pretty Well in Japan
« on: January 27, 2016, 10:16:47 PM »
The BCN Japan 2016 award winners have been announced in various segments of the digital imaging world. Canon continues to show strong sales in point & shoot and DSLR camera sales. The surprising finish for Canon in Japan is third place in mirrorless sales.

TS560x560

Keep in mind Japan may not represent the rest of the world, especially when it comes to mirrorless. That is the one marketplace where mirrorless cameras have had the most acceptance.

We suspect point and shoot and DSLR sales would favour Canon on most of the planet.

Thanks Richard

It is interesting that their video camera sales are in the tank. They can't have anything more than 5% of the market (in Japan anyway).

In 2014, Canon was in 4th, barely behind Panasonic and trending up.

Where is Fuji in the mirrorless race? I was expecting them to be #1

In 2013, Japan's population was 127 million, 1.78% of world population. But it received 13% of world camera shipments and 15% of the lenses.

It was about 30% for Europe and America. 

The numbers probably hasn't changed much since then.

Anyways, there are reasons why Canon does what it does. Some of us love to compare Canon with Kodak. And some of us badly want Canon to meet our individual needs, the notion is that otherwise Canon is destined to be doomed. Bottom line is that Canon wants to keep most people happy and still make profit. They are pretty good at doing it despite out DR and mirrorless crave.

I think they were at #4 in 2014 with 11% market share as far as I can remember. Over all they are a very small player though. This are last month's numbers. Fuji is no where to be found in top 20.

Numbers aside. Fuji does make appealing looking camera if you can't afford a Leica. :)

They surely do. I was really tempted to get one as my second/third travel camera. But I would wait till Canon makes one that I like. A true Canon fanboy.  8)
Here are the mirrorless numbers, btw. You will have to wonder why M2 is at #1.

Congratulations. I am sure that's a fabulous combination.

My mirrorless set up will be different though. I want it to be really light. So, Canon or not, it will be the camera plus 1-2 pancake style prime lenses and a light weight zoom.

Only if you like the retro/hipster look. If so, then Fuji does make good jewelry.

No ! NO ! it can't be ! The EOS M is way behind other mirror-less and lacks essential features, right ? And if anyone knows about mirror-less cameras it's the Japanese consumer right ?

And how can Canon be so far ahead in slrs when their camera are so inferior ? I mean the internet says so - all over ! Don't the Japanese look at the sensors ? Don't they want to shoot under exposed images of black cats in coal holes like everyone else ? Or lift black Space to reveal swirling nebulas whilst exposing for the planet Zog ?

Where did you find this rubbish ?  ;)

Your recollection is incorrect, insofar as BCN's data for Japan.   As I stated, Canon was #4.  Fuji fought it out with Nikon for the bottom slot...and Fuji won!



You can also see that Sony's downward and Oly's upward trends continued through 2015, with Oly now on top.

Overall, this quite clearly shows how far the views of some CR members are disconnected from reality.  "Canon can't compete in mirrorless?"   ::)

This is Canon 'fighting with one arm tied behind their back' – not really investing much in a smaller ILC market segment, with only one body line and a handful of lenses, compared to the diverse range of the other main players in the segment...and Canon is #3.  Consider what's likely to happen if the global MILC market ever grows to the point that Canon decides it's worth a serious investment....
