This brings the total of new cameras in 2011 to 182 from the major manufacturers. Of those, 19 are interchangeable lens cameras, and 51 are fixed lens cameras with a zoom ratio of 10x or more. The percentage of superzooms among the fixed lens cameras is currently 31% (51 divided by (182-19)). Match that zoom ratio iPhone/smartphones ;-)
