Canons most popular cameras among photojournalists?
Dec 3, 2012

I came across an interesting article today on Flipboard. According to Reuters , a staggering 81.9% of their top 95 images of the year were taken with either Canon 5D2, 5D3, 1DIV or 1DX cameras. I find this surprising since for the past five years Nikon has been fielding at least competitive (some would argue "superior") products and some of its core technologies–such as sophisticated and reliable ambient and flash metering, and color-aware 51-pt AF–would make the job of a PJ easier. Yet in five years, Nikon apparently still hasn't made significant enough inroads among professional photojournalist to see a meaningful number of images made with its gear. I mean, there is no appearance of Nikon D300 or D700 cameras, even though about 3% of images were taken with the older, also-12 MP Canon 5D.
