Hello RAW friends,
Time to gear up this blog again. Sorry to do so with a story that may set your teeth on edge, but ...
Gizmodo's Michael Hession has written an interesting piece about what he says is the inevitable demise of the DSLR.
No, he doesn't think that smartphone cameras will take over the world (although everybody takes photos with their smartphones). Rather, he's excited about mirrorless cameras: they are small, their electronic viewfinders are bright and accurate, and auto-focus is improving.
Hession says Canon and Nikon have been slow to produce mirrorless cameras because of their dominance of the DSLR market. He also concedes that DSLRs will continue to surpass other cameras in continuous auto-focus and large telephoto lenses.
But he poses a provocative question: If you're not a studio pro or sports photographer, why strap an extra pound of glass and metal around your neck?
Read his complete story here, and tell me what you think in the comments below.
