Your Camera is Probably Not the Best

The photography world has been experiencing a major shift from DSLRs to mirrorless cameras in recent years. Mirrorless cameras have been gaining popularity due to their smaller size, lighter weight, and improved features. Sony and Canon have been leading the way in this shift, and we have data to prove it.

Since 2018, we've been tracking the number of published photos from both Sony and Canon cameras. The results are clear: mirrorless cameras are taking over. In 2018, Canon was still leading the market with 56.1% of published photos, while Sony had 43.9%. However, by 2020, Sony had overtaken Canon with 51.4% of published photos, while Canon dropped to 48.6%.

The trend continued in 2021, with Sony dominating the market with 56.8% of published photos, while Canon had 43.2%. This is a significant shift from just a few years ago, when DSLRs were still the norm in the photography world.

So, what is driving this shift towards mirrorless cameras? One major factor is the improvement in technology. Mirrorless cameras have been able to incorporate features such as electronic viewfinders, fast autofocus, and high-speed continuous shooting, which have been lacking in DSLRs. These features have made mirrorless cameras a preferred choice for professional photographers, especially those who need to capture fast-moving subjects.

Another factor is the size and weight of mirrorless cameras. Mirrorless cameras are much smaller and lighter than DSLRs, making them easier to carry around and more convenient to use. This has made them a popular choice for travel and street photographers, who value portability and ease of use.

Overall, the shift towards mirrorless cameras has been a major development in the photography world. Sony and Canon have been at the forefront of this shift, and their dominance in the market is a clear indication of the growing popularity of mirrorless cameras. As technology continues to advance and more photographers discover the benefits of mirrorless cameras, we can expect this trend to continue.
