Last week we published the Top 10 Popular DSLRs – listed in order of popularity with our readers based upon their purchases at Amazon over the last month or two.
Today we’re publishing a similar list – but this time looking at the most popular Point and Shoot Digital Cameras. I know that there will be some debate over what a point and shoot is and isn’t – but basically I’ve lumped all non DSLRs into this list whether they’re compact point and shoots or super zoom digital cameras.
Note: the numbers in brackets after the descriptions show how many people purchased the camera mentioned. In each case I’ve compiled different colors of the same camera into one list so in many of the cameras its a total of multiple colors.
Top 20 Popular Point and Shoot Digital Cameras
Canon PowerShot SD780 IS – 12.1 Megapixels with a 3x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.5-inch LCD. (pictured above) (27)
Canon PowerShot G11 – 10 Megapixels with a 5x Wide Angle Optical Stabilized Zoom and 2.8-inch articulating LCD. (3)
Nikon Coolpix S630 – 12 Megapixels with a 7x Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) Zoom and 2.7 inch LCD. (3)
It’s nice to see 6 manufacturers making this list – particularly seeing Panasonic come close to pipping Canon for the top spots!
PS: I’ve just bought myself a Canon Powershot S90IS (pictured right) – it’s very new and so didn’t feature high on the list as it came out partway through the period of this survey but I expect it and its big brother the G11 to climb the rankings in future months.
