Digital camera monthly production output tracker

The Digital camera monthly production output tracker was ported here from my other blog, PhotographyEtc from 10/31/2005. These are mainly historical numbers. Time permitting I will try to update them.

Production numbers are not tracked anywhere else, so I will be tracking them here. The production numbers are usually announced by some companies in their Japanese market announcements. These can be found in the news section of http://digitalcamera.jp and the japanese/global sites of some of the manufacturers. Please let me know if you have more numbers or any corrections are needed.

These are the initial production numbers. Companies may be adjusting them but not announcing it to the world. There were only two cases of public announcement of adjustments: Digital Rebel (300D) and Nikon D70 increases in production.

By the way, 1k = 1,000; mo = month.
