The imag­ing prod­ucts di­vi­sions of Ja­pan’s ma­jor D-cam mak­ers fore­cast growth trends for the cur­rent fis­cal year 2013-14, buoyed by de­pre­ci­a­tion in the yen, and a strate­gic shift for most of them to higher-priced mod­els. Canon and Nikon, the two largest man­u­fac­tur­ers, in par­tic­u­lar are pro­ject­ing about 50% year-on-year growth in op­er­a­tional prof­its, backed by their strong show­ing in the D-SLR busi­ness. Olym­pus and Fujifilm, who have seen their com­pact dig­i­tal cam­era mar­kets suf­fer un­der an on­slaught from smart­phones and tablets, are also pro­ject­ing growth in prof­its fol­low­ing de­ci­sions by both the firms to em­pha­size their medium- to high-grade com­pact mod­els by grad­u­ally stop­ping pro­duc­tion of their lower-priced mod­els.
