Nikon published their earnings report for the third quarter of FY 2019 (fourth quarter of 2018, 01 Oct. – 31 Dec.). For the Imaging sector the firm reported both lower revenue (-25.5 bn. Yen) and operating income (-7.6 bn. Yen):
High-end camera sales were brisk thanks to the new ML (Nikon Z6, Z7) launch, but fierce competition in the shrinking entry and mid-range DSLR markets suppressed the volume largely in addition with the initial cost, resulting in revenue and profit reductions.
Very noticably are the crashing sales of fixed-lens digital cameras (Compact DSC): Based on volume the firm produced about 40% less cameras compared to last year.
In the report, Nikon refrains from making forward looking statements; like the competition the japanese camera maker will likely focus on the more profitable product segments. Expect more higher-priced full frame models and fewer entry level compacts and DSLRs.

Camera Creativ can recommend these digital cameras from personal experience. They all provide the best value in their respective category.
Large 1" sensor and 10x Leica lens make the ZS100 / TZ101 the perfect travel zoom.
4K Video, panos and a 60x zoom, combined with Pannys Post Focus in a portable package.
Grading up from a smartphone or compact? Then the Rebel T6 / 1300D might be for you.
APS-C DSLR for discriminating amateurs. With articulated screen and dedicated microphone port.
Best-selling mirrorless ILC with APS-C sized sensor and speedy AF. Currently at bargain prices.
APS-C ILC with 4K video, sensible feature set and nice EVF. Vast selection of lenses via adapter.
First gen. RX100 with 4x Zeiss lens. Still our standing recommendation, especially when on offer.
Posh compact with 1" sensor and very bright 4x zoom. Pocketable and with good manual controls.
Best feature and sensor set in any outdoor camera bar none, combined with clever software.
New in 2018 with 4K 60p support and improved stabilizer. Still the mother of all action cams.
