The latest figures from the Camera & Imaging Products Association in Japan (CIPA) have been released for the month of April 2023, and it seems that compact cameras with built-in lenses are much more popular than we thought.

Is it due to the rise of Sony's new vlogging cameras like the Sony ZV-1 II and Sony ZV-E1? The good news is that we seem to be clawing out of the pandemic peril of supply shortages and economic uncertainty, but influencer culture might be about to bury what's left of traditional DSLRs.
