Would you buy a m43 camera with Black and White sensor?

Market analysis by Futuresource: 8 times more photographers in 10 years.

The mirrorless market is not growing as expected and DSLR sales are declining since years now. But nevertheless thanks to the smartphone boom the worldwide population of photographers has grown by a factor of 8 over the last 10 years! That is what Futursource reports. And they also add that this doesn’t mean the system camera market is going to disappear:

While smartphones represent the primary camera device for a growing share of consumers, the opportunity for users to ‘step up’ to digital cameras grows with every new photographer.
“It is clear that digital cameras maintain key technical advantages over multifunctional camera-devices, in terms of bigger and superior sensors and optics, and manual control, commented Arun Gill, Market Analyst at Futuresource Consulting. However, smartphones are setting the bar in terms of smart UI’s, connectivity and mobile apps, which represents a growing usability delta between smartphones and digital cameras.”
