Panasonic also recently released its latest financial results. Here are the details on the "Appliances Segment" that also includes cameras:

Sales decreased by 2% to 1,375.8 billion yen from a year ago. Despite increased sales of room air-conditioners in Asia and Europe as well as favorable sales in Commercial Refrigeration & Food Equipment in North America, overall sales decreased due to sluggish overseas sales of TVs and digital cameras. Operating profit decreased to 52.9 billion yen from a year ago due to the impact of lower sales mainly in TVs.
