    Since Canon dumped their printers into the same division as cameras, one can't tell much about either without further breakdown. Their overall 51.2% drop has many contributing factors.

    But, let's speculate a little. Their medical and office products are less likely to be on the down cycle technologically - in fact, medical in general is trending up - and presumably only suffering from the negative business environment. Which likely means that their photo-video business is even worse off than other divisions. Which is why they chose to lump photo-video into the same pile with everything else.

    Investment firms and the industry analysts should have more to say, as they get a far more detailed summary.

    Chairman & Ceo Fujio Mitarai "Although the business environment surrounding the Canon Group remains fluid, we will endeavor to improve our business results by further improving the competitiveness "

    The 90D seems to only have 30p in 4k, based on the leaked canon video. When he mentions competitiveness, he doesn't seem to be referring to their camera division! The 90D specs should have been released 3 years ago with the 80D.

    Now that Canon and Nikon have released their mirrorless cameras, even most fanboys are seeing that mirrors are on their way out and DSLRs have their days numbered. And Canon has a problem in their mirrorless lineup: they use EF-M mount for their APS-C models, and RF mount for their FF models. EF-M is so niche that third parties don't even make lenses for it (Sigma just announced it will start... soon...). So, the RF can be great for a lot of people, but there's no path going there, you have to start with the $2k full frame model and either buy super-expensive lenses or adapt big and heavy DSLR lenses. To be fair, Panasonic has exactly the same issue, but without the capability to adapt same-brand DSLR lenses, and Nikon doesn't even make APS-C or m43 mirrorless cameras. But Sony has been playing the mirrorless game for a long time now, and offers a much more appealing path to new users.

    The B&H best-seller mirrorless camera list right now is: a7R IV, a7 III, a6400, Z6 with lens, Z6 body only, Z6 refurbished, a7 II, a7R III, GX85... and then Canon R. You know you're doing bad when you're losing to the Z6 in such a spectacular way.

    Canon 90D has been announced. $1199 USD

    32.5MP, UHD4k 30p, FHD 120p with DPAF.
    Still 10fps and 45point cross type AF.
    Capable camera and will sell very well for photographers. I have an 80D as backup but don't shoot much video with it.

    The Canon 90d doesn't even shoot 24p, not that capable for video

    Nikon supposedly has an APS-C Z5 on its way. A universal Z-mount, copying Sony's FE approach.

    A deluge of new cameras, each crippled in its own distinctive way, vs the new wave of the periscope zoom smartphones which incorporate every trick and even have much higher resolution on top of everything.

    This doesn't look too good for Canon's future.

    It only took canokoni 10years to get 1080 10bit video in slr form. Hopefully the’ll make something worth owning before they go out of business.

    Sony's staying, as they're a major sensor OEM, which is why they have to cripple their own cameras along the way. The Tower Jazz poobah said something along these lines recently, "How can you compete with Sony if you keep buying their sensors?" (Of course, Tower Jazz designs sensors themselves)

    Panasonic is too diversified to care much.

    Canon and Nikon are in deep doo-doo.

    Starting to sound like intel vs intel, when talking sensors these days.

    If the other manufacturers can get over the 15stops DR slump, then they can just compete on ergonomics and lenses. ....like they used to.
