The 10 best-selling cameras in Japan: no full frames, no DSLRs, no Nikons!

The year-end retail report for Japanese camera sales in 2021 has been published, and it paints a fascinating picture of the camera landscape: not a single full-frame camera cracked the top ten, and neither did a single DSLR, nor a single camera manufactured by Nikon.

The sales data revealed that the single most popular camera was the Sony A6400, which appeared twice in the top ten (both in dual lens kit form, with black the most popular followed by silver). Closely following it were the Canon EOS M50 and Canon EOS M50 Mark II, which again made two appearances apiece (also in dual lens kit form, first in white then in black).
