In Japan, digital single lens reflex cameras (DSLR) now hold nearly 7% of the country's DSC unit share. In 2005, DSLRs in the US and Europe had 5.2 and 4.2% unit share, respectively. That same year in the US, DSLRs reached sub $900 and sub $800 price points for the first time, motivating the advanced amateur to purchase an upgrade.
