    While mirrorless cameras have been rising in popularity since at least 2013, driven in large part by Sony's A7 and Panasonic's GH cameras, this past year feels like the start of this camera format becoming dominant. Both Nikon and Canon, the last major manufacturers to avoid the full-frame mirrorless market, released feature-packed cameras complete with radically new designs and lens mounts, and we've seen ambitious new models from Fujifilm and Panasonic that bring features not before seen in DSLRs. Traditional DSLRs aren't going anywhere for a while, but expect to see more and more mirrorless designs from all these companies.

    Finally, a good explanation of dslr and mirrorless. Instead of just "mirrorless is smaller bcs it has no mirror inside, the end."

    Best camera systems comparison I have ever seen. Complex, to the point and without strong biases. Loved the new technologies presentation as it developed over time.

    +Sandy Lee The best astrophotographers use Canon dslr's, for those that use dslr's. A search into this will yield those facts. God Bless.

    +Jeremy Kirkpatrick Me too. I just don't want to have to go through the hassle of trying to hunt down and fish out a hair or particle of dust or dirt. I take special care whenever I have to change lenses. I turn my back to the wind invert my camera an wrap my jacket around the entire apparatus. I'm accident prone and that one in a million gust of wind carrying all the road debris will happen just as I unscrew my lens. A real crimp in my style.

    This was an amazing video. Went into this thinking I was not going to learn anything new but I was wrong. Give this man a raise for God's sake.

    Excellent video, but no mention of Pentax 'SR' (shake reduction) the DSLR in body stabilisation that's been around for ages :'(

    Very informative information. I have the EOS R and will never look back. The advantages are well worth the switch.
