Most Popular Cameras

Published by at 7:08 am under Equipment

There are a number of ways to answer this question. One would be to obtain manufacturer sales data, if available. What I have today is a more easily obtained source – Flickr.com.

This popular file sharing site can capture camera info from about 2/3 of the photos submitted to their site. If you are wondering how they do this, check out the term “exif”.

As of today, Sunday April 19, 2009, the 5 most popular DSLR cameras in use for Flickr uploaders are

* Canon Rebel XTi
* Nikon D80
* Canon Rebel XT
* Canon Rebel XSi
* Canon 40D (my baby!)

And in the Point and Shoot category?

# Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS
# Canon PowerShot SD1000
# Canon PowerShot SD750
# Canon PowerShot G9
# Canon PowerShot S5 IS

WOW! Canon sales people must love this.
