Popular Digital Cameras

It’s that time again where I reveal what digital cameras, lenses, accessories, books and other gear you, the DPS community, have been buying over the last couple of months!

Here at DPS we’re able to get a sneak peak into what our readers buy when they click on one of our links to the Amazon online store. We don’t get specific info on what individuals buy – but the collective information is interesting and gives a good indication of what’s hot at any given point of time.

By the way – when you make a purchase at Amazon after clicking on one of these links we get a small commission that helps us to improve DPS (design improvements, running competitions and even paying or giving a gift to the occasional guest author). We appreciate your support in this way.
