The changes sweeping across the camera industry continue to reflect themselves across company broadsheets as smartphone camera sales explode and other segments wane, some much more so than others. In a bit of disheartening news, digital camera shipments fell even lower than their nadir in 2016, posting one of the lowest volume years on record according to industry analytics group CIPA (Camera and Imaging Products Association). A little over 2 million digital cameras were shipped in November 2017, 17% lower than in that same month in 2016. That’s a massive decline year over year and even more troubling when taken into consideration with prior years like 2015. Looking back at November 2015, the numbers become even sadder as DP Review notes 2015 saw almost a million more units shipped than in 2017.
