The demise of Nikon and Canon DSLRs is a good thing

The DSLR has been pronounced dead more times than Rasputin – and this week the death knell rang once more thanks to a report from Japanese newspaper Nikkei (opens in new tab), which claimed that Nikon is planning to “stop making” single-lens reflex models to “focus on mirrorless models”. Canon, it said, was planning to do the same “within a few years”.

This wasn’t really surprising news, or perhaps news at all. Last month, Nikon announced that it was halting production on two of its best beginner DSLRs, the D3500 and D5600. Still, the idea that Nikon could soon stop producing its entire DSLR lineup was a new development – if not entirely true, according to Nikon.

In a statement (opens in new tab), Nikon branded the article “speculation” and said it “has made no announcement in this regard”. Somewhat vaguely, it added that “Nikon is continuing the production, sales and service of digital SLR” cameras, without mentioning any particular models or anything about development.

But we don’t need to wait for a statement from Nikon or Canon to know that DSLRs are now a legacy format.
