InfoTrends has been conducting in-depth studies of the digital interchangeable lens camera (DILC) market since 2008. What started as a digital single lens reflex camera (DSLR) market has now evolved into two segments: DSLR cameras and mirrorless cameras (MILCs). The distinction between DSLRs and MILCs is disappearing given SLR-style mirrorless cameras like the Nikon Z7, Panasonic Lumix DC-GH-5S, the Canon EOS M50, the Sony Alpha series, and their positioning in the market. As we look ahead, we believe that the market will become known as the DILC market, with the use of “digital” being optional. Interchangeable lens cameras, regardless of whether they have a mirror or not, will have to compete mainly on features, benefits, and price.

This study is designed to equip companies that are interested in the DILC market with critical business planning information.
