Two weeks ago I asked DPS readers to tell us about their Digital Camera kits (and told them about mine). I ask this question every 6 or so months to try to get a picture of what cameras everyone is using.
Following are a few observations on what you the DPS community has in your camera bags:
DSLRs outweighed Point and Shoot cameras significantly
There were 5 times as many DSLRs mentioned. I suspect there are more point and shoot users who decided not to comment as the conversation was very DSLR focused. The Point and Shoots mentioned were so few and scattered that I couldn’t really identify a top list.
There were quite a few DSLRs which were mentioned time and time again. Here’s the top 10, listed in order of popularity.
- Canon EOS 40D (pictured above)
- Canon Digital Rebel XTi/400D
- Nikon D80 (pictured right)
- Nikon D40
- Canon Digital Rebel XT/350D
- Nikon D300
- Nikon D50
- Nikon D200
- Sony Apha A100
- Olympus Evolt E510
Canon and Nikon dominated the DSLRs
The brand mix in the DSLR section was like this:
- Canon – 69
- Nikon – 66
- Pentax – 9
- Sony – 7
- Olympus – 6
- Konica Minolta – 3
- Sigma – 1
It was close (as usual) but this time Canon came out slightly on top).
Thanks to everyone for participating!
