The pro camcorder market has continued to be eroded by convergent products such as DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, particularly as new end user types start producing professional grade video. The dynamic between the convergent products themselves is now changing, however, with other devices, including smartphones, limiting their potential.
Based on direct feedback from manufacturers, resellers, associations and end users, the Convergence in Pro Video report quantifies the volume of DSLRs, mirrorless and “video-first” cameras that are sold into pro video applications. This is accompanied by strategic analysis considering these product categories' performance in direct relation to the total pro camcorder market.
