Now that the trade shows (mainly PMA) have come and gone, most of the newly announced digital cameras are hitting the shelves. 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 March 2007.
One of Sony’s new T models (the T100) zoomed onto the list this month as these stylish models typically do. Other new entries on the list are the Olympus SP-550 UZ and Canon Powershot SD1000. These three cameras bumped the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 to #14, the Canon Powershot G7 to #11 and the Canon Powershot A630 to #12.

|1. Canon Powershot SD600 (previously #1) – One of three new Digital ELPHs introduced last February, the SD600 features 6 megapixels, a 3x optical zoom, and a very nice 2.5 inch LCD.

|4. Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 (previously #4) – The compact 10x zoom TZ1 is making a return to the most popular list. I assume that this is because it’s successor, the TZ3 has been announced and will be soon. The TZ1 is one of the more compact ultra-zoom cameras and has optical image stabilization.

|5. Olympus SP-550 UZ (first time in top 10) – We reviewed this new advanced Point and Shoot from Olympus and really liked it. The SP-550 UZ features a 18x optical zoom lens that can also do a 28mm (35mm equiv.) wide angle. A 7.1 megapixel sensor, 2.5 inch LCD, and dual image stabilization (sensor-shift and high ISO) provide nice hardware for this advanced camera.

|8. Canon Digital Rebel XTi (previously #8) – The XTi (also know as the EOS 400D) is Canon’s replacement to the almost ubiquitous Canon Digital Rebel. The XTi features 10.1 megapixel resolution, a 2.5 inch, 230K pixel LCD, dust reduction system, and 9 point auto focus system. Also, a relief for some, the XTi still takes CompactFlash media.

Featuring 10 megapixel resolution, a 3x optical zoom, titanium body, a 2.5 inch LCD, and the new DIGIC III processor, the SD900 is very attractive. It also features Canon’s facial detection system.
