Weekly Nikon news flash #100

This weekend is the 100th week anniversary of the weekly Nikon news flash - I will celebrate it with another giveaway next week. Here are the news for this week:

  • Nikon Malaysia is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and they will have a 3 days expo in Kuala Lumpur (the ad is from a local photography magazine):

#1 Canon EOS Kiss X4/T2i/550D (unchanged)
#2 Nikon D90 (up)
#3 Nikon D3100 (down)

"The forecast for total shipment (the cumulative total of shipments from January to December) of digital cameras in 2011 is 131 million units, a year-on-year increase of 7.8%. In a breakdown of digital cameras by product type, shipments of cameras with built-in lenses and those with interchangeable lenses are forecasted to reach approximately 115.5 million (a year-on-year increase of 6.4%) and 15.5 million units (a year-on-year increase of 20.2%), respectively.

Of particular note is the expectation that the rapid growth trend will continue in the category of digital cameras with interchangeable lenses for markets outside Japan, with shipments of 13.8 million, a year-on-year increase of 21.1%, anticipated. The total shipments of lenses for interchangeable lens digital cameras continue their marked growth in step with the expanding market for digital cameras with interchangeable lenses and the broad range of product offerings, with a forecast for 2011 of shipments of 26.4 million units, a year-on-year increase of 21.7%."
