Sony, Nikon Narrow Gap to Canon With New Digital Camera Models

Sony Corp. and Nikon Corp. narrowed the gap to Canon Inc., the world’s largest camera maker, last year after introducing a new lineup of models.

Sony, the world’s second-biggest camera maker, controlled 17.9 percent of the market, improving from 16.9 percent a year earlier, researcher IDC said in an e-mailed statement to Bloomberg News yesterday. Nikon had 12.6 percent compared with Canon’s 19 percent, which remained unchanged from a year ago.
