Shotkit has just published the finding of a recent survey where 1,000 photographers were asked “What camera do amateur and professional photographers use in 2022?”. The findings of the survey are quite surprising but give a good insight into the most popular camera choices. 

Since mirrorless cameras first emerged on the scene, there has been an ongoing debate as to whether they really are better than DSLRs. While the best mirrorless cameras often offer smaller bodies, faster continuous burst modes and silent shooting options, the best DSLRs can be more ergonomic, they have optical viewfinders rather than electronic ones which means better quality and less lag and the battery life is often a lot better.
