Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Canon 7D MK II review product images (10 of 10)ISO 4001-25 sec at f - 4.0

“The industry and the state of technology is evolving or developing so quickly I frankly cannot guess what will be five years from now. I am not certain if you’d asked me this during January 2014 I could have predicted the state of affairs today, Dec 1, 2014, just one year later.” stated Henry Posner, Director of Corporate Communications at B&H Photo Video Pro Audio in NYC.

Indeed, technology these days moves so fast that we’re not sure anyone would be able to tell. Not many could have expected that a product from Apple introduced around five years ago would have improved to the point where many use it as their main camera every day. Nor did we think that it would spur the creation of an app that allows a new breed of photographers to make a decent living off of shooting photos for advertisers.

However, it is the job of manufacturers to have some sort of foresight into the future and be able to predict how the industry will evolve and technology will progress. But that’s a tough job–and one that is much easier said than done given the viral nature of the internet and social media.

To get an idea of how the industry may change, we talked to the representatives of many leading manufacturers. What they had to say may be quite understandable.

In the year 2014, it’s become very clear that the mirrorless camera industry is the future and that the DSLR is steadily being phased out. We’re not going to say that it’s dead because many people still purchase DSLRs in droves. But after the jump, you will see a major round up of mirrorless cameras released vs DSLRs.

One number is more than double the other.

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Canon EOS M First Impressions (2 of 18)ISO 200

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.

However, there’s a strong possibility this new camera won’t simply be an EOS M3 following in the footsteps of the two previous models. Rather sources say it will be a new EOS M that we will really like, and that’s what we were all waiting for.So far there have been two different reports from sources with one saying it will feature a full-frame sensor on board, while the other has mentioned an EOS M rangefinder.

The big take away from this is it seems very certain that Canon is working on a new mirrorless camera. All the while 2015 has been rumored to be a very busy year for Canon with a purported 50MP professional full frame camera named the EOS 3D, which could come with a second variant that does away with the low-pass filter.
