Nikon has released its 2021 first quarter financial results, and the figures are encouraging. They show increased revenue in all of the company's business sectors relative to 2020, and an increase of ¥24.9B in revenue and ¥17.5B in profit specifically in its Imaging Products Business. It indicates a significant recovery in unit sales of digital cameras, though given the global struggles in 2020, improvements this year were always likely.
