  • 1.7 billion imaging sensors sold this year (~one for every four people)
  • 250 million smartphones with 5mp+ sensors sold next year (~one for every 30 people)
  • 100 million compact cameras sold this year (~one for every 70 people)
  • 12 million DSLRs sold this year (~one for every 575 people)
