Samsung camera is market share leaderSamsung Techwin Co., a digital camera unit of Samsung Group, overtook Japanese rivals to become the top firm in Korea’s digital camera market during the first half of this year, industry sources said yesterday. The sources said Samsung Techwin had a 25 percent market share, followed by Sony Corp. with 18 percent and Canon Inc. with 15 percent. Olympus Corp., the world’s third-largest maker of digital cameras, lost its No. 1 spot in Korea with its market share dropping to 15 percent for the first six months of this year. Samsung Techwin attributed the growth to brisk sales of its flagship model Kenox and recently unveiled slim camera “#1.”
