→ The Japanese website Mynavi predicts the rise of DSLR cameras this year due to the replacement of old models and the appetite of younger generations for cameras:

Interchangeable-lens cameras can significantly increase single-lens reflex cameras in a long time. In January, Nikon announced the D780, a full-size single-lens reflex camera with enhanced live view and video functions by aggressively incorporating mirrorless technology, and was favored by existing single-lens reflex users. In addition, many SLR cameras for beginners and intermediate users have been around for some time since their appearance, and there is a possibility that the live view and video functions will be enhanced like the D780, and models will be changed one after another. More notable is the movement of young people. According to a survey conducted by CIPA for people who usually only take pictures with smartphones, young teenagers ranked digital cameras first in the question of "devices you want to purchase within one year".
