People like taking photos. And they apparently like using Nikon cameras to shoot those photos. At least that’s what it seems like when looking at Nikon’s 1st Quarter Fiscal Year 2012 (April 1 – June 30, 2011) results.
Nikon sold a record number of DSLRs, lenses and compact cameras in its first quarter, as noted below.
In the Imaging Products Business, thanks to the earlier-than-expected recovery of the parts and materials supply chain and the Group’s focus on stable product supply, record first quarter sales volume was recorded for digital SLR cameras, interchangeable camera lenses and compact digital cameras; and despite the effects of the drastically appreciating yen against the U.S. dollar, the Imaging Products Business marked record first quarter highs in net sales and operating income.
