CIPA (Camera and Imaging Products Association) has released it's analysis of 2009 camera sales. Here are the results:
Point & shoot = 96 million cameras sold
DSLR/ EVIL = 9.9 million cameras sold
Lenses = 16 million sold
The DSLR figures include EVIL cameras like the Olympus E-P series and Panasonic GH/F series. These figures pretty much prove that point & shoot cameras are the back bone and foundation that keep Nikon or any other camera company going.
