On a side note, if you look at those numbers - more than a 100% increase in dSLR share of camera sales and revenue over the past 5 years - and also consider the overall dSLR market share, which went from a near tie to Canon dominating, it's easy to see how Canon could (and arguably should) feel that they have had a winning strategy for the past several years, and thus easy to see how they can justify sticking to that same strategy. I'm not saying they should do that, but that's definitely the easy road, especially for a conservative company.
I would think that anecdotal evidence supports the DSLR portion of Canon's overall camera revenue is growing as well, and I assume Nikon for that matter too. All you have to do is look around and you'll see that traditional P&S cameras are slowly disappearing from the general public. I know I used to go to any number of events: grads, concerts, parties, bars, parks, beaches, etc. and you'd see lots of people with their P&S cameras.
Now, I seldom see my non-photographer friends with P&S cameras, the reason is obvious, why carry a P&S when you have a iPhone, Andriod, or Blackberry. So now they use their phones to take their snap shots and those who don't use their phones have DSLR kits (Rebel). In fairness I still see some P&S cameras, but it certainly seems that the middle ground between phones and DSLRs is disappearing.
Having said that I recently bought a waterproof/shockproof P&S camera for a vacation in Mexico, but all I used it for was snorkelling. I'll take it skiing with me at Spring Break, next winter on my next trip to the Caribbean, and in the summer I'll use canoeing at the lake with my kids (it's not unheard of for us to dump occasionally
). In the mean time, my kids use it, it's actually good for them, it's shockproof to 6'6"/2m.
