It would be nice to see the breakdown of all 103,481 pictures submitted by 5,666 photographers from the 124 countries.

The current breakdown is biased but its biased on the winning entries from each category...so do you blame the camera or do you blame the photographer.

Photographers using Nikon are bad or

Nikon cameras make bad images or

The contest is sponsored by Canon so they must win the most awards?

D4 seems to need an injection of market energy. Interestingly D700 still the most used Nikon by that group. Nikon seem have made a few mistakes inthe last few years and lost the initial D3/D700 momentum.

Do you realise that this figure is based on 55 photos, only 42 of which identified the camera? These 42 photos are also likely to be a biased sample of the entries.

I simply meant that the distribution of cameras used by photojournalists who are capable of winning a competition with 91k entries, is probably not the same as the distribution of cameras used by the average photojournalist who enters such a competition (which is also probably not the same as the distribution of cameras used by photojournalists).

42 is also a ludicrously small sample size on which to base this kind of comparison.

Thanks for tgat info, I had understood to be from the whole submission group, does not mean much I agree. Even if unbiased, 42 means a very large error is possible compared to the whole pop.
