Anything else just isn't Enterprise enough.

Are DSLRs a dying breed?

If you were to buy an interchangeable lens camera today, would you buy a DSLR or a mirrorless?

Professionals need the lens choices, for the other 99.9% the camera in their phone is probably good enough most of the time.

True, though smartphone cameras don't have optical zooms yet. So you won't have much joy from the smartphone camera on a safari trip.

Given the price of a safari, the optimum choice would probably be to rent a fully pro Nikon DSLR kit for 2 weeks.

...or you could just stay at home and google images of lions, the results (sadly) will usually be much better.

Not necessarily, the weight of a full frame telephoto lens can be enormous.

Mirrorless, as I want the option to do not-shitty video.

Another nice thing about mirrorless cameras is that you can take pictures practically silently.

The nice thing about DSLRs is you can pick them up dirt cheap on ebay, mine cost me £80 with a reasonable lens, ten years ago it was 10x that amount.

A 10 year old DSLR will have a poorer performance than your iPhone.

I don't have an iPhone, they aren't ten years old yet.

What's the age of consent for iPhones? 12?

I am a mirrorless fan. I do find that mirror clunk annoying, and it seems much louder than the sound from film SLRs.
