Top 10 Graphic

Canon remained at the top with first and second place covered by the SD1400 and Rebel T2i. We’re guessing that plenty of people found those in their stockings this year. In fact, nine of the ten spots on our list are occupied by the two big manufacturers. Only Panasonic managed to squeeze into the top five with the venerable Lumix ZS7.
