Top camera makers Canon and Nikon are planning to introduce full-frame mirrorless cameras before the end of this year, according to media reports.
Nikon Rumors reported this week that Nikon will announce not one, but two full-frame mirrorless cameras by the end of this month, shipping in August, with a 25-megapixel model rumored to cost under $3,000 complete with a lens.
Not to be outdone, Canon Rumors reported Thursday that Canon will also have two full-frame mirrorless cameras coming "before the middle of 2019," including a 30.4-megapixel model and perhaps a 24-megapixel model, each of which shoots 4K video.
Mirrorless cameras could well be the answer to the current crisis faces by camera manufacturers who see their space being taken away by smartphones. The mirrorless models take away the bulkiness of the traditional cameras making them much more compact.
