Top 10 Graphic

Our monthly roundup of the most-viewed cameras is back and it's the much-talked-about Panasonic GF2 making a splash. It debuted on the list after we published a fairly positive review, and it garnered the most page views in February. The long-time reigning champ, the PowerShot SX20, is knocked off the list after many months at the top.

Canon PowerShot SX30

8. Canon PowerShot SX30 IS (previously #6) – You have to give the SX30 credit for its 35x optical zoom lens. Outside of that it offers 720p HD video and a flip-out LCD.
