Re: Camera survey

I have a Canon point and shoot for family gatherings and vacations. I use a Canon Power Shot Pro and shoot raw for anything work related.

Thumbs up Re: Camera survey

I've always used Canon cameras, although I did try a Nikon once, but stuck with Canon. I now have a Canon 50D, and just love it.

Re: Camera survey

Why wasn't the Mamiya (RB67) in the survey?

Re: Camera survey

Two reasons:
  1. I selected the top 10 market share brands for 2007 (2008 hasn't been published yet)
  2. Even if I wanted to include other cameras, the survey tool only allows for 10 possibilities
I supposed I could have included an "other" category as the tenth possibility, but that only occurred to me after people started to vote and I did not want to change the votes that were already in place.

Re: Camera survey

To get a better idea of who shoots what maybe there should be a poll for professional and non professional user cameras as most of the above fall into the later category.

Re: Camera survey

Frank, this sample size seems pretty small. Statistics for 2007 showed Canon and Nikon owning 86% of the total DSLR units shipped in 2007 with Canon 5 pts ahead of Nikon but with Nikon gaining rapidly. It will be interesting to see what the 2008 results look like.
Regards, Murray

Re: Camera survey

I was a Minolta shooter for the time before children. Now I'm a Canon person all the way. It is too expensive to switch back and forth between brands. It looks like I'll be Canon until I die.
