Worldwide camera market: DSLR shipments decreasing. Mirrorless shipments (slowly) increasing!

Image courtesy: Personal View.

Well, you didn’t see this coming: The DSLR market is considerably decreasing while the mirrorless market is slowly but constantly growing. The Japanese organization CIPA posted the latest June camera shipment data from Japanese companies. And you can see them on graph at Personal View.

In the period between January and June 2014 DSLR unit shipments did fall by 22% compared to the previous 2013 January-June period. Mirrorless camera shipments increased by 23%!

Of course Mirrorless market is still not exploding but in it’s holding well compared to the shrinking DSLR sales. And I guess that as soon that Nikon and Canon will “get serious” with mirrorless things will change even further.

Anonymous: “Issue with GH4 connecting to external monitors and 24p output. Not sure if you have heard about this but I feel it needs attention. Many GH4 users are reporting various issues with connecting to external monitors. Here are a few forums that I have found users are having the same issue as myself (my cheap Lilliput monitor will display all frame rates on the GH4 except for 24p and 23.978)
A search will pull up other forums as well complaining about the same issue.
Hopefully you can shed some light on the this if it has not yet been addressed or resolved.

Rhys:Hi, you don’t usually seem to cover many UK based deals, but I’ve just spotted that Jessops have pretty much every Olympus m43 lens with 10% off. I’ve just ordered a 9-18mm at about the cheapest price I’ve seen it at in the UK. I nearly paid £470 for it from Jessops earlier this week! :) Maybe you could share with your readers.

Tim:In Australia, the GX7 body is selling for $470 USA / $514 AUD at three stores online.

Yan:Recently, we used Panasonic GH4 to shoot chemical reactions in 4K with a Tokina 100mm macro lens. Below is a trailer we just released (in 1080p): I think 4K and m43 format make GH4 the king of macro video work. The image detail and large DOF are unmatched by any other consumer camera on the market. I hope this video could be useful to the m43 community.”

Muvida:Here’s a video clip I shot last month using hacked Panasonic GH2 at 720s/50fps mode. Lenses : Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 and SLR Magic 12mm f/1.6 both with hoya CPL filters.

Fabrys:This is my last video shot in London with the OMD EM-5 and the Sony RX100MII (for slow motion at 60P).

Henrik:I made this video a couple of days ago.It shows how powerful the GH3 still is and how the 43 system has no problems competing with professional equipment. Wanted to share this with you in case it would be interesting for 43rumors’s readers to watch. Filmed with the first batch of the Panasonic GH3 camera, coupled with the black Olympus 45mm F1.8 using a cheap set of macro tubes. Recorded entirely at ISO 1600 and F8 aperture.
