Digital camera orders on Amazon, which have been growing by more than 10 percent a year, are set to hit the $4.99 price tag for the first time.
Digital cameras from brands including Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony are priced at $4,999 and $5,499, respectively.
Digital camera orders have been on the rise in recent months, with Apple, Amazon and Samsung the top three sellers, according to data from the data provider Sensor Tower.
The biggest increases have come from Canon, which jumped by 9 percent and Sony, which has jumped by 10 percent.
Digital cameras from manufacturers like Sony, Canon and Nikon are priced around $4k for the base model, which costs about $2,800, according the data firm.
But some smaller brands, such as Panasonic and Olympus, have been increasing their prices over the past few months.
Digital video camera orders are also rising by 5 percent a month.
This includes video cameras from companies like Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung and Sony.
But smaller brands like Panasonic and Sony have been rising their prices by a lot, which is why many are looking to lower their prices in the near term, said the data company Sensor Tower, which tracks digital camera prices.
Digital audio recorder orders are on the upswing, with Amazon, Apple, Canon, Olympus and Samsung all increasing their orders by more or less 10 percent in the past year, according data from Sensor Tower and data provider DataDirect.
This year, Panasonic and Samsung have both been increasing prices by more then 10 percent, said Sensor Tower CEO and founder Mike Shafroth.
This could be a sign that the smaller camera makers are getting into the camera business.
“This could be another sign of the camera market growing, and we’re seeing a lot of growth in digital video camera,” Shafro said.
Digital video camera prices have been soaring over the last few months, especially as Apple and Amazon have been dropping their prices, according DataDirect CEO and president Michael C. Smith.
Digital audio recorder prices have increased by around 5 percent.
In the past month, Nikon and Canon have both increased their prices a lot.
For Nikon, the price is up by about 30 percent, and for Canon, the average price is almost 15 percent higher than the average for the year.
