Has the Death of the DSLR Been Greatly Exaggerated? – Light Stalking
Another opinion on the future of DLSR, but this one lacks the “are you still using a DSLR??!” tone found in most articles online, a tone that really annoys me. And the timing is perfect, with the recent release of the Sony a7/a7R or the Olympus OMD-EM1, cameras that could take mirrorless outside the realm of street and travel photography, the natural environment of most models today.
Technology changes and I’m not fondly attached to one or other another. DSLR’s are certainly in decline and I honestly think I may have bought my last DSLR (mostly because I plan to keep this one for a long time) but they’re certainly not dead yet.

I’m a great fan of Nick Brandt and his wildlife photos, but this is one step beyond: taking dead, calcified animals from the harsh Lake Natron and posing them as alive. With little surprise these photos became viral in the last weeks.
