    i think it is due to the fact that the cameras in cellphones has improved every year and is more used by consumers due to practicality and portability.
    especially if taking photos is just for facebook and instagram.

    Mobile phones nowadays can do almost anything. Capture photo, edit on the spot, and post to social media. So there!

    Bec hauling a big ass camera and a big ass lens is not hipster anymore.
    Most photogs dont print their images anyway.

    Also, IG makes an airhead-wench a genius photographer, so there's that.

    there's one line on that link

    The mass simply doesn’t need cameras anymore.
    this is totally wrong. The Sales of the Cameras doesn't reflect people's need for Cameras. That Sales Figure is just the effect of the over saturation of Models from each big companies.

    It's their fault really, coz they've been releasing very good products that people don't need to upgrade anymore.

    let's say for example, an owner of a d7100 would think twice whether to upgrade to the d7200 or the latest d7500 when the upgrade is only incremental. photogs now focus their budget more on the lenses, not the body.

    So long as you know how to market yourself properly and have a brand name then your photo studio business should do well.

    If the business is presented as a "generic" brand then it can only demand generic price. Maraming "generic" na paid photographer because wala silang PR o sablay ang PR nila. This is not of lack of talent.

    The topic is about the number of point & shoots, DSLR and mirrorless cameras and lenses sold.

    Smartphones caused the death of low end point & shoots forcing brands to target high end with better image quality through larger image sensor and better optics in compacts. Point and shoots with a Four Thirds, APS-C & Full frame sensor.

    There isnt enough innovation in the DSLR market to prompt someone who already bought a DSLR after 2007 to upgrade unless their body is that old, that big or that broken.

    Smartphones are replaced with a newer model every 12/24/36 months if you're on a postpaid plan so the last point & shoot you may have bought between 2007-2012 might have been your last.

    Action cameras, drone cameras and 360 cameras do not compete directly with any of traditional cameras as they created a new specialized product segment. Can you imagine the level of difficulty of doing a portrait prenup with bokeh with a 360 camera?

    Young people prefer sticking to their smartphone due to price and convenience. Older people tend to have an ILC because they have the time and money to use them.

    I expect the DSLR body lineup to shrink down to the numbers back in 2003-2004 with one entry/consumer DSLR, one prosumer DSLR and one pro DSLR for both APS-C and Full Frame.

    I expect point & shoots to shrink to less than a handful large image sensor and superzoom cameras.

    Mirrorless will continue to expand.
