The Future of the Photo-Industry: An excellent Article by Roger Cicala


Roger Ciacala of Lens Rentals is known for his informative articles. His repair statitstics for lenses and DSLRs, which allow insights into build and service quality of diverse manufacturers’, are highly praised in the community. Treasured as well are his “teardowns” of cameras and lenses along with his profound articles on test prodecures and diverse technologies applied in lenses and cameras. When someone like him writes an article on the future of the photo-industry, you naturally need to read it. 😉

The most crucial topics he addresses are smartphones and their impact on the future of picture-taking, mirrorless technologies (EVF, on-sensor phase AF, cost advantage etc.), the increasing importance of third party manufacturers and the significance of modular assembly for service and market segmentation or product individualization. It is a very long article, but definitely worth reading. I warmly recommend it to people who are following “DSLR vs MILC“ and “the end of DSLRs“ discussions with great interest. 😉
