There are persistent rumors on the Web that Canon might be working on a secret mirrorless camera. If this is true, then we are definitely headed towards a revolution in the photography industry similar to that of the digital cameras which took the photography industry by storm. The expensive, heavy, clumsy, intimidating, complicated DSLRs will shrink to an elite niche photography group, and the smaller, lighter, less expensive, intuitive, easy-to-use mirrorless cameras will take center stage. That is the trend in this day and age.
Mirrorless cameras are completely taking over the photography world and Canon might finally have a serious contender to throw into the ring. Canon Rumors has picked up on news the Japanese camera company will soon announce the development of a new mirrorless system camera.
I firmly believe we are in the middle of a game-changing point which will have a strong influence in the way will take pictures in the future. If Canon, Nikon or Pentax/Ricoh don’t join the bandwagon; they run the risk of following the path of the Dodo. Kodak failed to take notice of the strategic inflection point taking place in film photography and was blown out of the water.
Companies like Olympus, Panasonic, Fujifilm, Samsung and Sony have been working feverishly on mirrorless camera for several years and are making significant inroads in the photography industry. If you have been reading my blog posts, you already know that I’m planning to buy a Fujifilm X-30 next year and selling my Canon DSLR. Many professional and novice photographers alike are following the same route.
Cameras like the Sony A6000, Panasonic GX7, Fujifilm X-30 and Sony X100 MIII are raising more than one eyebrow at specialized photography fairs. Yep, 2015 promises to be an exciting year with many surprises under its sleeves. Canon, Nikon, and Pentax are you there? Good Day.
