DPRTV: What’s Coming in 2022? 100MP Full Frame? and Sony Cannibalism?

DRPTV has offered us a lot of entertainment this year, but they wrapped up 2021 with an interesting parody that you can see below along with predictions for 2022. If we weren’t in the middle of a supply chain crisis at the moment I would say the guys are probably spot on, but this crisis might just been what Canon/Nikon need to catch up to Sony.

100MP Full Frame
I think most photographers would love to have 100MP to work with, but I’m not sure Sony or Canon can produce a full-frame 100MP sensor at this time that won’t have noise or dynamic range shortcomings.

Electron Shutters Becoming More Common
Most companies would likely want to go electronic shutter in the future if they can because it would reduce the cost of designing/producing a camera and increase reliability which would reduce demand on repair centers.

Affordable Full Frame vs APS-C
The momentum away from APS-C and towards larger sensors like Full Frame has been persistent and this year could see additional pressure in that direction. It’s unlikely this will be the year where we see cheap full-frame replace APS-C due to supply chain shortages, but Canon, Sony, and Nikon will likely wait to abandon APS-C when they get around to producing larger than Full Frame cameras in the future.

End of DSLR
Most mirrorless shooters have called for the end of DSLR for a while and it’s probably right around the corner, the shortages could work for or against DSLR, because if DSLR production is not impacted then it could cause Canon/Nikon to double down while they can. On the other hand, if they start running out of parts for DSLR’s then Canon/Nikon could close lines and get ready for a faster ramp-up of mirrorless camera production so we will have to see how that goes.
