Introduction of Dual SD card slot is also on my wish list as well as their should be some sort of High Resolution Mode, similar to other Sony flagship alpha Fullframe cameras.

Digital Camera Sales all Time Low

Well that’s a matter of concern anyone who is associated with camera industry. As you can see the camera announcement has decreased tremendously from 2013, and after every year we are facing a big drop in the number camera announcement.

As you can see in the graph last year only 31 New camera was introduced, which is approx 50% less compared to previous year of camera announcement. It’s very clear and important to understand that Digital camera sales are falling down, but interchangeable system sales are safe and we haven’t seen any bid down or up with the stats of system cameras.

CES show was a platform for the announcement compact cameras.   But, surprisingly this year CES show was completely blank and not a single compact camera was announced in the show.

The compact camera sales almost touched the ground and only few pro compacts with big sensors are able to attract limited customers.

1. The Rise of Compact and Social Camera – Smartphones

The big reason behind the drop of camera in the sales digital camera is introduction of smartphones with camera module and advance OS  which can cross connect social media platforms, that allow users to quickly upload the images.

 

2. Photography all time popular

Image uploading apps specifically Instagram growth is viral, as you can see every year more and more users are connecting with each other and sharing their stories and images. That clearly indicates people do love cameras which are socially connected and compact in size.

What you think ? People love photography but they don’t love camera anymore ? Do share your thoughts with us.

Canon Working on Hybrid Viewfinders For DSLRS

 

Canon is working on to improve the DSLR viewfinder by adding a extra layer Hybrid EVF over it. Adding a extra layer of Hybrid EVF will going to solve all the problems associated to the optical viewfinder in the current generation of DSLR camera.

Advantage of Having Hybrid Viewfinder in DSLR camera

  1. In general the DSLR viewfinder become dead  while you are recording a video, because the mirror is flipped up and the DSLR sensor on work, so at that moment the optical viewfinder becomes inactive. One of the biggest advantage include Hybrid viewfinder, is that you can use it while you are creating video from your DSLR.
  2. Introduction of Global shutter in DSLRs, after adding hybrid EVF for DSLR maker it will become easy to go beyond 20FPS or even more than that while keeping your viewfinder active. Since, the flipping Mirror do have limited physical speed and once they reach physical limit it is not possible to use global shutter with optical viewfinder.

No Sony A7S III at NAB - A Quick Update

Many rumor mills were expecting the arrival of the Sony A7S III camera during NAB 2018 show. But, as I always say… before the arrival of any camera we generally get some strong hints prior to it’s announcement. But, this time everything was completely dry and even trusted Japanese sources were completely silent.

One of the most interesting thing is Sony doesn’t have any new camera registered in the wireless certification agency. That also clearly indicates we will not going to see any new Mirrorless OR pro compact camera from Sony at least for next 2 to 3 months.

Take a look at the list of Sony camera we are expecting this year

1. Sony A7S III

Sony A7S III camera is also overdue for an update and we are expecting its update this year. Based on rumors we have received in past the Sony A7S II camera is expected to arrive with a stacked CMOS sensor.

2. One more Mirrorless announcement on and before Sep 2018

Surprise announcement to overshadow the Nikon and Canon Mirrorless announcements, introduction and new A9 series camera possibly A9R or A7R IV.

3. Sony A6700 / Sony A7000

Overdue for an update, Sony A6700 is rumored to feature 4K at 60p and stacked CMOS sensor.

4. Sony RX100 VI

Delayed due to the announcement of RX10 IV last year, Sony RX100 VI is scheduled to arrive at the end of 2018 or may the beginning of 2019.
