Although the epidemic has wreaked havoc on many sectors, cameras are still flooding the market, particularly lately at the high/professional end of the spectrum. According to recent rumors, sales aren’t slowing down anytime soon, and we may be in for another slew of arrivals before year’s end.
With models like the Sony A1, Canon EOS R3, and Nikon Z9 pro-level headlines have dominated the news lately. As a result, we could anticipate some improvements to those lower down on the scale in the mid-tier or entry-level categories. More budget-friendly choices will be good news for everyday buyers who don’t want to waste their money on a high-end camera.
By the end of this year, we could reasonably anticipate to see further travel-friendly/cheaper APS-C mirrorless alternatives as well as some full-frame cameras. Although the DSLR is not yet dead, it now feels quite unlikely that new ones will be released before the holiday season, with producers preferring to clear out outdated stock before making fresh announcements.
