Death of dslr`s present good opportunities.................

…………...to pick one up dirt cheap . That is if this guy`s thoughts become more of a reality than we might think. Imagine Ebay flooded with hopes from those wanting to dump their dslr to avoid heavy losses.

Even the author of that article doesn't believe what he's saying.

Spends most of the article saying people need to sell their gear ASAP, then ends by saying he plans on keeping his gear.

fstoppers clickbait.

(CIPA) In units, DSLRs still outsell mirrorless, particularly in The Americas and Europe. Before DSLRs can die, they have to get below the 50% mark.

I think what a lot of people keep forgetting (or just are not acknowledging) is that even if DSLRs completely  stop being produced tomorrow, the cameras will still function as if nothing ever happened... You don't need constant 24/7 development of DSLRs for your cameras to function or to even maintain value on the second hand market.

It's a pretty simple task of 3D modeling something. It's getting it to fit that takes most of the time!

What'll happen is...

...our small DP world will continue to move toward mirrorless as The Next Big Thing. Just like we moved to digital, and to SLRs before that.

Then, a subgroup will realize that DSLRs have some advantages that are missed. Pure optical viewfinders, killer battery life, even just a nice sound and feeling to use them. So they will stay alive, at least to some extent, just as film has.

I agree for the most part, and will continue to be diehard DSLR. I just cant get used to the lag in the EVF. Lots of diehard film shooters using mechanical cameras 30-40-50 years old or older because they can be serviced. I just cant imagine in 20 years, let alone 50, there will be any surviving DSLR's due to lack of batteries and electronic failures that will not be serviceable.

Re: What'll happen is...

I have a D3100 - love it. I have a m43 mirrorless. Love it too.
Trouble is, I nearly have what I need. Change gets harder to justify. Manufacturers want to tempt me, But the stuff I have just keeps doing what it always did, I have no need to change.

Kodak sold a majority of film just a few years before they reached bankruptcy.

There is this island for sale  in Fiji , for $75 million.

I wrote to them asking for a heavy discount due to the fact that the seas are rising.

Re: Death of dslr`s present good opportunities.................

Full frame mirrorless would be nice, but not near enough to justify $3500 for a new body and then have to replace my lenses.  My current cameras meet my needs so I'll stick with them until one of them dies.  Even then I probably wouldn't switch, I can buy several used DSLRs for the cost of a new A7IV.

That said, if I hit the lottery all bets are off.

Its the same mentality as that of the people buying the latest phone every year. Nothing wrong with that, keeps the economy ticking. The people who use them as tools don't care either way..

Re: Death of dslr`s present good opportunities.................

I see it all the time on youtube dooms day scenario for dslr's. Yet the end product is as good as it gets. I would be more concern about getting a good lens than changing the body of the camera. I have a D700 which it puts out great pictures. The only technology that I wished they could integrate is the eye auto focus for my portraits but for $3500 no thanks.

The seas are rising! The oceans are dying! Everyone sell all your water now before it becomes stagnant! Dihydrogen monoxide is the better solution! Water is a dinosaur!

(But seriously, sea level rise is very concerning)

Not the first thread from OP on this subject . The subject has been beaten to death and until the manufacturer’s proclaim that production has stopped there’s nothing more to add really.
