Nikon Will Reportedly Stop Making DSLRs To Focus On Mirrorless Cameras 

According to Nikkei Asia, Nikon will cease production of its SLR camera models. The camera industry continues to be influenced by the increasing competition from smartphone cameras. 

Japanese camera manufacturer Nikon will be focusing its attention on new mirrorless models. The Nikon D6 DSLR will also be Nikon's last SLR.

SLR (single lens reflex) cameras use various mechanical parts and mirrors to display an image through the lens or the eyepiece. 

In the past decade, mirrorless cameras have taken over the industry. Smartphone cameras are getting more powerful, and consumers don't feel the need to buy a separate camera.

Because they aren't mechanical, mirrorless cameras don't have the same shutters as SLRs. 

They can also shoot images faster than comparable SLRs and process them quicker. They also take up less space, making them smaller. 

According to Japan's Camera and Imaging Products Association, mirrorless camera sales will surpass SLR shipments by 2.93 million in 2020.

Nikkei writes that Nikon's cameras are losing to more powerful ones. 

"Nikon is determined to surpass them by offering unique products." Canon will also cease making SLR cameras soon.

Nikon's imaging business revenue is half mirrorless cameras, while 30% comes from SLRs. 

Nikkei reports that Nikon's imaging business brought in JPY178.2 billion ($1.3billion). Current Nikon SLRs are still being produced and distributed.
