According to Jared Polin from Fro Knows Photo, the photography world is about to “explode.” With mirrorless technology making its way to the forefront of the industry, albeit slowly, it seems that things are about to get very interesting. Is it time to drop your DSLR camera for a new mirrorless body?
In the next two months, Nikon and Canon are both about to release “at least one mirrorless camera.” In Polin’s opinion, the two DSLR giants are looking to compete specifically with the Sony A7R III. That means we can expect cameras around the $2,000 price region, piled up to the brim with exciting new features.
Nikon and Canon have been around for a long time, and experience is on their side when it comes to producing cameras. As Polin points out, they have “millions and millions” of lenses out in the wild already, meaning there are a huge number of options to pair with a new mirrorless camera from either of these two manufacturers.
Polin believes that the upcoming Nikon mirrorless camera is going to need an impressive autofocus system to work well with video, alongside 4K video resolution and faster frame-rates for stills.
“The whole world is going to change,” says Polin. “You’re going to see high megapixel versions, and maybe a sports version from both.”
