A Pro Photog's take on the camera industry (Lawrence Kim)


Some interesting thoughts in his latest post. LK has been thinking about gear of late, as he is upgrading from his 5D. The trends LK talks about have been mentioned numerous times here:
(a) Camera phones are going to grab huge market share from P&S market
(b) ILCs will also grab market share from P&S and entry DSLR markets

LK states he'll get an ILC (Sony or m43 from the looks of it) for his personal stuff, and use his DSLR for pro work. With Luminous Landscape also praising the GH2, it's clear the tide is shifting and m43 is "coming of age."

Global shutter seems like the next big step for m43. Imagine a micro E-5 body, global shutter + updated flash guns, a couple of pro zooms and a couple more primes... Mmm mmm.
