During the last days almost all the major brands have released new camera models. What they all have in common is that the size of the camera houses are getting significantly smaller.
Sony released the tiny A7 with full frame sensor, and yet changeable lenses. A camera that I think looks really interesting. Review here
Panasonic released their GX7. Once again, a tiny camera with a really impressive specification. In this case a Micro Four Third sensor. Full review here
Also Nikon release a new model of their smallest DSLR, the D5300. Now with WiFi, GPS and enhanced ISO-performance.
They all have one thing in common, the demand for smaller cameras are increasing. Can you imagine watching a photographer in the year of 2020 with a 40 cm lens? Neither can I.
What I think may drive the camera manufacturers might be the increasing quality in our everyday smartphones. For every day they are getting more and more traction, and I guess the smallest pocket cameras have a really tough battle to fight against the phones.
If you haven’t seen any images from the new iPhone 5S, that is one of the opponents of the traditional pocket cameras, I can recommend this good article.
