    is Canon better/more popular than Nikon?

    only asking because last week i was on vacation in Boston and i ran into at least 3 other DSLR owners and all of them had a Canon. i come home Fri then today go to a local park today and run into 2 more DSLR owners both of whom had a Canon as well. you would think that with all the photographers i ran into in the last week, that at least one other would have a Nikon but no such luck. i was the only one. was this just a fluke or does Canon just plain sell more cameras than Nikon? btw, i happen to love my D750.

    You saw more Canons while on vacation in Boston because Nikons don't have Vacation or Boston picture modes.

    At Zion and Bryce earlier this year I only remember seeing 1 Lady with a Canon, several point and shoots. And 8 to 10 Nikon's. Lots of people taking pictures with phones, and even tablets.

    Canon is a bigger company, more sales, more share of the market

    The short answer to that question is yes; Canon maintains a larger market share than Nikon and has for some time.

    Yes, there are more Canon cameras sold than Nikon. Back in the 1980's when I bought my first DSLR, the store showed me a Canon, a Nikon, and a Minolta. The Nikon was at least twice as expensive as the others. I believe over time, more and more pros and consumers turned to Canon. Watch some of the pro sports games. You should see quite a few white lenses when they pan past the photographers.

    I live in the middle of the US and I've been in the minority for decades. I finally stumbled into a volunteer group that's mostly Nikon (it's mostly gals), but all the local Clubs are mainly Canon. But I don't care. Been shooting Nikon for 40 years and don't know any better.

    Remember though that because Canon may sell more product doesn’t make it the better brand. THIS is a NIKON forum after all. But like so many things, it’s really down to personal choice.
