A long long time ago (in digital market terms) DSLR cameras were quite expensive. Well, at least more than most of the customers could or wanted to pay for. In those days only alternative for advanced amateurs on the budget or users in desire for higher image quality were so-called “prosumer” cameras. They still had small sensors, but paired to high quality optics in larger bodies with full manual controls. As soon as DSLR and (in the last few years) mirrorless cameras became affordable, prosumer cameras disappeared almost overnight. Why would anyone buy a product with worse image quality when you could get full size pro-looking DSLR to impress your friends instead?
