Indeed, it was mostly because of m4/3 that I started this site in the first place: I could clearly see benefits to mirrorless cameras that would inevitably make them mainstream. Here's the thing: smartphones will just keep nibbling upwards in terms of knocking off dedicated cameras.
At this point, I'd say we're getting smartphones near the level of image quality that the 2/3" compacts were able to produce, and I have little doubt we'll eventually see smartphones that can top a 20mp 1" sensor digital camera, all else equal.“I think it’s something we just love and find very emotive.And it’s something that’s really worked for us as a motif.So another level of insecurity is that you might be pouring lots of money into your m4/3 system only to see it overrun by the smart crowd. That leaves very little territory for compacts and the nearby m4/3 to occupy and own outright. Bright to moderate light capability with small/light lenses.To me, something like the Pen-F with the f/1.8 primes is a clear example of a kit whose performance you couldn't get from smaller (smartphone, compacts, even 1" sensor) or size you won't get from larger (APS-C and full frame) cameras.
Findlay belts out the romantic notes on the in-universe competition show “Hot Shot.” “It was originally selected for [‘Fifteen Million Merits’] because it was, it has the sound of a timeless haunting classic, yet wouldn’t be familiar to most viewers,” creator Charlie Brooker tells The Wrap.
