Canon solidify its hold on our list of most viewed cameras for the month of June, but we saw mostly internal rankings shifts and little else this month: the top three devices – predictably, a Canon ultracompact, a Panasonic ultrazoom, and a Nikon DSLR – remained unchanged from May.
Similarly, Canon's ultrazooms continue to hold a sizable percentage of our product page views. In fact, ultrazooms in general represent fully half of the models on this list for June – not surprising when you consider how much emphasis has been put on the compact portion of this segment in particular during 2009.
Look for a few changes as some of the last new PMA and early summer launches get reviewed. Otherwise, though, we're betting that this collection of models will continue to take the lion's share of product views around here at least until back-to-school sales come along and shake things up.
This list of cameras shows you what visitors to DigitalCameraReview.com viewed most often 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 for the entire month of June 2009.
