Digital Camera Sales all Time Low

Well that’s a matter of concern anyone who is associated with camera industry. As you can see the camera announcement has decreased tremendously from 2013, and after every year we are facing a big drop in the number camera announcement.

As you can see in the graph last year only 31 New camera was introduced, which is approx 50% less compared to previous year of camera announcement. It’s very clear and important to understand that Digital camera sales are falling down, but interchangeable system sales are safe and we haven’t seen any bid down or up with the stats of system cameras.

CES show was a platform for the announcement compact cameras.   But, surprisingly this year CES show was completely blank and not a single compact camera was announced in the show.

The compact camera sales almost touched the ground and only few pro compacts with big sensors are able to attract limited customers.

1. The Rise of Compact and Social Camera – Smartphones

The big reason behind the drop of camera in the sales digital camera is introduction of smartphones with camera module and advance OS  which can cross connect social media platforms, that allow users to quickly upload the images.

 

2. Photography all time popular

Image uploading apps specifically Instagram growth is viral, as you can see every year more and more users are connecting with each other and sharing their stories and images. That clearly indicates people do love cameras which are socially connected and compact in size.

What you think ? People love photography but they don’t love camera anymore ? Do share your thoughts with us.

Laowa 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 FE Zoom

This lens is currently the widest zoom lens available for Sony full frame E-mount cameras. Designed primarily for travel photography, Venus optics have managed to compress the size to smallest in its class, less than 10 inch (<10cm) and only 1.1 pounds (<500g). The 102° (18mm) to 130° (10mm) angle of view provides flexibility for photographers to compose landscape or architecture photos with ease. The lens houses with 14 elements in 10 groups with 2 aspherical elements & 1 extra-low dispersion element to deliver exceptional performance.

Followed by the success of the Laowa 60mm f/2.8 2:1 Macro, the 100mm f/2.8 2:1 Macro is the 2nd member of Laowa 2:1 macro line-up. This new 100mm lens can cover full frame sensor size and focus from 2:1 magnification to infinity. The wide magnification range allows macro photographers to capture subject at any sizes. This 100mm portrait lens also features an apochromatic (APO) characteristic that no chromatic aberration can be found. The 12 elements in 10 groups optics design delivers a crystal sharpness image in both macro and tele distances. Canon EF / Nikon AI / Pentax K / Sony FE mounts are available.

Laowa 17mm f/4 GFX Zero-D

This is currently the widest available native lens option for Fujifilm G-mount cameras. The new Laowa 17mm f/4 GFX has a field of view equivalent to 13mm in 35mm format (113°). Featuring a close-to-zero distortion and 86mm filter thread, this lens is ideally suited for landscape, architecture & interior photography. The 21 elements in 14 groups design with 2pcs of aspherical & 3pcs of Extra-low dispersion elements successfully help to control the distortion & chromatic aberrations to the minimal.
