Camera manufacturers and the rest of the consumer electronics industry are gearing up for the holiday buying season. Many of the new cameras announced back in August have started to make it to our top 10 list and reviews are starting to hit the web. 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 September 2007.

There were plenty of changes between August's and September's lists, with four cameras gaining a place on the list.

For additional help while choosing a camera, you can register for our forums and ask as many questions as you want.  If you're looking to buy, the best place to start is our Digital Camera Buying Suggestions forum.  If you need help with your current camera, then we have forums for each brand of camera.
