Summer is wrapping up and the camera manufacturers have pretty much finished making their latest round of new camera announcements. In August alone, there were almost 40 new models announced. Most of them haven’t hit the market yet, but when they do, we’ll see some more shifting in our most popular list. This list of cameras shows you what visitors of DigitalCameraReview.com looked at over the past month. The rankings are determined by the number of times a particular product page is viewed by our users. The rankings below are from the entire month of August 2007.
Our list didn’t change much since July’s list. The top two cameras even stayed the same. There was only one camera that got knocked off the list, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100. It was replace by the Canon Powershot SD750.
