After yesterday’s story that Nikon is set to withdraw form SLR camera production, a new report reiterates that Canon will follow suit.

Nikkei Asia reports about Nikon retiring SLR camera production, and cites Canon too.

TOKYO — Japanese camera maker Nikon will withdraw from the single-lens reflex camera business and shift toward digital offerings amid intensifying competition from smartphone cameras, Nikkei has learned.

Nikon’s SLR cameras have been widely used by professional photographers for more than 60 years and have come to be seen as synonymous with the Japanese company.

It now plans to focus resources on mirrorless cameras, which have become mainstream products on the back of more advanced digital technologies.

[…] Rival Canon also plans to follow Nikon and stop producing SLRs within a few years. 

This doesn’t come as a breaking new to Canon fans. Reports about Canon retiring SLR production showed up some time ago (and where partly denied by another Canon exec).

The future present is mirrorless.
