Mass market for DSLR or MILC is dead. Just look around you in the general population. DSLR or MILC will make a come back when phone move to a different format meaning not a multi purposes tools and this will not happen soon.

I believe Canon , Nikon and Sony have one chip doing the same as what Pentax do with 2 chip
Please read here what Digic from Canon do, seem like it's also an accelerator for me.





QuoteQuote:

As cameras increase in functionality, pixel counts and sophistication, the burden shouldered by DIGIC has increased as well. A recent example is autofocusing on the EOS R, which requires the image processor to process up to 40 times more data than the maximum required on the EOS 5D Mark IV during Live View shooting, a feat achieved by the new DIGIC 8 processor.

Home to the Sony Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation, the Center produces a staggering four million sensors a day for a wide range of imaging products. Many will find their way into Sony-badged cameras and smartphones like the Alpha A7R III, Cyber-shot RX10 IV and Xperia XZ1, while others are destined for a host of cameras and devices from other brands that rely on Sony for their sensors.

Sony, the world’s dominantmobile camera lens maker, is reportedly having difficulties making enough tomeet the demand of its customers.


TerushiShimizu, the head of Sony’s semiconductor unit, revealed in an interviewwith Bloomberg thatthe company is running its chip factories constantly through the holidays forthe second consecutive year to try and keep up with the demand of its mobileimage sensors.“Judging by the way thingsare going, even after all that investment in expanding capacity, it might stillnot be enough,” Shimizu said in an interview at the company’s Tokyoheadquarters. “We are having to apologize to customers because we just can’tmake enough.”
Sony controls over 50 percentof the smartphone image sensor market and supplies them to various smartphonemakers including Xiaomi and Apple. In an attempt to cope withdemands, the company has invested in increasing its production capacity bybuilding a new factory in Nagasaki that is scheduled to open in April 2021.
The company is also seeingincreased demand for a new generation of image sensors that can see the worldin three dimensions. Those sensors use a method known as “time-of-flight” or“ToF” sensor that sends out laser pulses and measures how long it takes forthem to bounce back in order to create more detailed depth models.
After the PlayStation,semiconductors are now Sony’s most profitable business segment. The company hasraised its chip unit’s operating income outlook to around $1.8 billion USD forthe year ending March 2021, and it predicts revenue will climb 18 percent toabout $95 billion, of which image sensors account for 86 percent.
“The camera has become thebiggest differentiator for smartphone brands and everyone wants their socialmedia pictures and videos to look nice, ” said Masahiro Wakasugi, an analystwith Bloomberg Intelligence. “Sony is riding that wave of demand very well.”
