    Came across some interesting figures when looking for what to
    purchase.

    Total 5.3 million SLRs shipped in 2006, 39% growth over last year.

    Canon shipped 2.46 million, 31% growth over last year. Nikon made 1.74
    million shipments, 36 percent growth. Sony made 326,000 SLR shipments
    in 2006. Samsung and Panasonic shipped 43,000 and 36,000 SLRs,
    respectively.


    The overall camera market grew 15 percent to 105.7 million in 2006.
    The compact market grew 14 percent to 100.4 million.

    Let me guess... the other brands.

    The news.com story didn't mentioned figures for others. They took
    figures from a IDC study, but that would cost a couple thousand bucks,
    if you are really curious :)

    Depends on the question, which wasn't specific. If the question was
    about camera sales then my answer is appropriate. If it was about
    SLRs then Sachin Garg's answer is appropriate.

    You got that wrong - look at the subject line . It specifically mentions
    slr. How much more specific can you get?

    Then read the post:
    "The overall camera market grew 15 percent to 105.7 million in 2006.
    The compact market grew 14 percent to 100.4 million."
    It is not at all uncommon for a post (even the OP) to cover more
    thanjustt he topics given in the Subject line.

    THIS IS A SIG LINE; NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY!
    The White House gave John Kerry's
    campaign nemesis Sam Fox, who funded
    the Swift Boat Veterans, a recess
    appointment to Belgium on Wednesday.
    Nothing ever changes. John Kerry
    insisted he was for the appointment
    before he was against the appointment.

    The stats seem to miss Pentax, and Olympus that are bigger players in
    the dSLR market than Panasonic's overpriced rebadged Olympus and Samsung

    I agree that Joan's comment was probably misplaced, but if you read the
    thread you see there is a comment about "overall camera market" and then
    compact sales. Considering the subject line and what the individual had
    been discussing prior to his overall camera market comment, one could infer
    that he meant the overall dslr market; however, that's not guaranteed, nor
    is there any need to talk down to Joan over what may or may not be a
    misplaced comment considering the non-specific language.
