I suspect a similar chart from 2002 would have had a 2% slice for digital cameras and there would be some fool loudly proclaiming that "digital got spanked."

Your analogy fails completely.

Digital had a steady level of growth over film once it became affordable. There was NO stopping digital. That was transparent to anyone but the clueless.

So there's no stopping mirrorless - only clueless ones don't realize it. When you can make a professional grade camera that breaks down into a mere 10 components (A7), you have a compelling economic reason to go this way.

Mirrorless has sputtered, coughed, wheezed, and stalled after its early adoption. By any metric available mirrorless is in decline faster than the SLR market. By ANY metric available, mirrorless is losing their manufacturers tens of millions of dollars every quarter. We are all STILL waiting for a single, solitary mirrorless maker to post $1 in profit. Just a single $1.

Year after year after year after year, mirrorless cameras lose millions upon millions of dollars.

Year after year? Film took 20 to finally wind down. Mirrorless is just getting started.

You have me convinced. Time to buy stocks in mirror companies.
