Just recently I've been looking at the ever increasing number of interesting statistics coming out of 365 Project. Now it has grown greater than just myself, we have thousands of uploads every day and the information coming out is just incredible to look at.
In this post I have collected some basic usage data of the different cameras people are using on the site. I've listed the percentage of photos taken using each camera.
I found it interesting to see that there is actually a 50/50 split between Canon and Nikon here. Canon clearly hold a greater percentage overall, managing to capture all top 3 positions, but Nikon are still popular with the 365 community. Could this be because Canons are just that little bit cheaper?
I was also surprised at the lack of the higher range of Canons gear. The 40/50D and 5D/1D selection of cameras are completely absent from our lists, showing a clear trend towards the more hobby and beginner camera markets. Looking at the wider data these ranges are still popular, but a fair bit further down the list, the Canon 40D and 50D come in at 12th and 13th respectively, and the 5D lagging down in 18th place.
In a few weeks I will be taking a look at the Point and Shoot end of the market. So stick around to see if Nikon, or any of the other brands can gain any ground in that area of the market.
What are your thoughts on the above list of cameras? Do you own one of these, or looking to buy one?
