It has been a few days now since I asked readers to nominate which Digital Camera Manufacturer is best.
By no means have we arrived at any solid conclusions (and I wouldn’t expect us to) and by no means is the conversation over (you’re more than welcome to keep having your say) however I thought it would be interesting to do a little analysis of the conversation so far and have come up with the following graph which is an attempt at observing what the trend is so far in conversation.
It was a difficult process to do as we have over 50 opinions already expressed and many of them contain numerous ‘votes’ (my fault for making the topic so broad) but the following is an indication of what I’m personally observing in the conversation.
Obviously the the ‘big two’ are Canon and Nikon – but there’s an interesting ‘battle’ going on at the second tier between Pentax, Fujifilm and even Olympus.
Canon and Nikon got a lot of votes particularly when it came to DSLRs (and Canon also did well for compacts) however Fujifilm was consistantly nominated for best point and shoot – particularly with it’s low light sensor technology (I personally would concur with this as a Fujifilm FinePix F30 owner).
Pentax was largely nominated for it’s DSLRs.
Of course – this diagram is just one person’s observations of of a conversation that is still in progress – however as someone who is a visual person I thought it might add a little something to the discussion.
