The top seliing digital cameras listed here are for the end of year 2009. This information is collected from various sources and may not be a reflection of the total sales. So what are the top selling digital cameras?
1. Canon A570IS. Quite a good deal at $155, with an IS lens and PSAM.
2. Canon A560. At around $137 it is another great deal for the dollar. I would recommend people to get this instead of an A4xx-series, even if it costs a bit more
3. Canon SD1000. At $176 this is Canon's mass market Elph
4. Canon A720IS. This is a camera to trade-off with the A570IS. At $195 you get a 6x instead of a 4x lens, and a newer model. This was a made-for-lots-of-sales model with a starting price of $250.
5. Canon SD850 IS. For those who don't want an entry-level Elph, this at $260 is an option.
6. Canon SD750. People who don't mind getting an older model, and think that's where the real bargains are at, may find it interesting at $209.
7. Canon SD800 IS. Wide angle option #2 among the Elphs at $240, starts at 28mm. You can thank Panasonic for forcing this with their FX-series.
8. Sony W55, pink - at $170 this model would have probably been in the top three (if not #1) if it wasn't available in so many different colors. This is good news and bad news for Sony. It means it's selling a lot of these, but it is not in the traditional Sony "luxury" price-range of $300ish. But since Sony's digital camera financial results were good the last time they reported, why should I be complaining? :)
9. Canon SD870 IS. This is the #1 choice in wide-angle Elphs. You do pay a small premium as it costs $306 (vs $240 of the SD800), but the choice is yours. It's good to have choices!
10. Canon Digital Rebel XTi (aka 400D) with the 18-55 EF-S lens, black finish of course, and a price tag of $630. This is the first dSLR in the top 10, but there's more coming up!
11. Canon G9. It may not have the defining features or the "heat" of the original G-series, but don't judge this GINO by what it is not, but judge by what it is. With fewer cameras in this segment, this is a very good entry, especially at the price of $440, and now with RAW. Sure it has its negatives like just about any camera, and there's always room for improvement. But here's a newsflash: The perfect camera will never be built, or if it is, it will cost more than the Nikon D3 :-)
12. Canon S5 IS. This makes a power duo with the G9 as it offers users Canon's long-zoom. Other companies have jumped to 18X and 15X super zooms, but as it is typical with Canon, they are among the last to jump on new fads, which partially explains why their balance sheet is so pretty. The price of this puppy is down to $343, making it an interesting decision, what to get, this one, the Panasonic FZ8, FZ18, TZ3 or the Fuji S8000fd or the Olympus SP560uz? Me, I'll take them all if they accept monopoly money as a method of payment :)
13. Nikon D300. Look at what we found at lucky #13! The second most talked about digital camera of the season. You can guess who is the most talked about one. It appears to be finally in stock in enough quantities that it's in-stock status doesn't jump all over the place like the NASDAQ. And this is also good because the price remains at $1800. As you may recall, some places had jumped up the price because demand was more ...demanding than the supply :)
14. Nikon D40. A Nikon DSLR with a kit lens for under $500? Yes sirreeee, the sub-$500 DSLRs from Nikon and Canon are here, although the $500 barrier was broken because of prices sliding over time, not because they were announced at $500 or less. This comes with the 18-55 DX (not VR) lens for $480.
15. Canon SD1000 black. In addition to the silver edition at #3. Since no hard sales numbers are given, we have no way of knowing whether combining the sales of these two would be enough to take over the #1 spot, or perhaps the Sony W55 quartet ended up selling more. Amazon, please tell us! We are dying to know!
16. Nikon L11. From a $5000 D3 to a $94 L11. Yes, a Nikon P&S with a 3x zoom lens for $100. Don't expect miracles, but don't expect a "Hello Kitty" either.
17. Canon Digital Rebel XT black, with 18-55 EF-S lens. We mentioned the sub-$500 DSLRs at #14. Here is Canon's entry. This guy (350D) is a generation older than the Nikon D40, but has two more megapixels for those who count . It is priced $10 less actually, at $470. An interesting twist in the price wars as Canon appears to be wanting to pick up in sales. It will be very interesting to see the DSLR sales for Q4 2007. Will it Nikon or Canon?
18. Canon SD750 black. This is the second model, the first one found at #6. Same price, at $210.
19. Sony W55 silver. Same price ($170) as the first one at #8.
20. Panasonic TZ3 silver. This is the camera that put the "fun zoom" subsegment of superzooms on the map and may be Panasonic's first blockbuster camera outside of Japan. Both Canon and Sony have released competitors, but it looks like the TZ3 is still leading the way. The price is very tempting too at $240. It will also be very interesting to see what Panasonic releases as a follow-up at PMA-2008. Given the popularity I would hope they offer a more advanced model, with PSAM as well, perhaps a dual TZ-5 and TZ-4 (vs TZ3, TZ2), and perhaps offer a more "grown up" model, let me call it TZ-10, perhaps an homage to the Panasonic FZ10 which was the first "grown up" FZ-series models, emerging from the modest FZ-1. Anyways, back to reality, this camera would have been much higher on the charts if it wasn't available in four different colors.
21. Canon SD950IS. The flagship of the Elphs (Ixus, Ixy, Pixie, Tennis Model Camera) at $356 features the obligatory 12mp 1/1.7x" sensor. With IS.
22. Sony W55 black, for $167. This is the third version of the W55, the other two are at #8 and #19.
23. Canon Digital Rebel XTi, body only, black finish, $550 even. Another wow price-wise when you consider where Canon DSLR prices were a year ago. The version of the 400D with the kit lens is at #10 and the only DSLR in the top 10.
24. Canon A460. At around $115 this is a nice bargain, but I would recommend getting the A560 or A570IS instead.
25. Sony W55 blue. This is the fourth color of the W55 in the top 25. Not bad eh? The others are at #8, #19, and #22. Too bad we don't sales data, it would make an interesting battle between this and the SD1000, and the A-series model for the top seller spot.

About Me and Digital Camera Fact Sheet
My name is Pat and I love photography. So if your looking to buy a new digital camera or need tips on how to find a great bargain or if all that digital camera jargon confuses you then you've come to the right place!
It’s hard to believe that the boom in digital cameras only came a little more than ten years ago, when the costs of the technology and media for these devices fell enough to make them accessible to the average consumer. Previous to this, the only digital cameras were priced at thousands of dollars, putting them out of reach of the average person. However, what is it about digital cameras that make them so popular? Let’s take a look at these gadgets and talk about how they’ve changed the world of home photography.
For the most part digital cameras are much smaller and lighter than film cameras. The size and weight of the best digital camera for one person varies greatly to that of another. If you want a camera that is lightweight and will slip into a pocket or purse then a ultra-lightweight cameras will probably be the best digital camera for your needs. These are often the least complex of the digital cameras as they offer point and shoot simplicity and are the best digital camera for beginners. At the other end of the size and weight scale comes a bulky 1? pound SLR camera for the ‘serious’ photographer who wants the best digital camera with all of the accessories to take the perfect shot.
Taking photographs can be a lot of fun, but the real fun is in instant viewing your photographs, which can’t be done with a film camera; you need to get that film developed before you can enjoy your pictures. For those of us who are procrastinators, the pictures might get developed weeks or even months after the event the camera was used at, not a great way to preserve memories. Digital cameras, however, save photographs as computer data, and when that data is uploaded to a computer, you can view those pictures on your computer as soon as the night you’ve taken the picture.
Saving the memory as data makes viewing pictures great for after an event, but manufacturers took that one step further and incorporated an LCD viewing screen on digital cameras to allow people to find out how well their pictures came out instantly. Did someone get in the way of that shot at your child’s graduation? With a digital camera, you’ll know right away. This feature allows consumers to learn to take better photos with digital cameras.
The rise of digital cameras came right as the Internet became a familiar fixture in many households, and they’re two technologies that complement each other. Once the pictures are uploaded to your computer, you can easily place them on your personal website, or e-mail them to friends and family. There’s no need to purchase duplicates at the photo development store, no scanners needed to convert the photos to digital images, and so on. Thanks to digital cameras and the Internet, we’ve become a society that better shares visual information.
In some ways, digital cameras can help cut the costs associated with developing pictures. While it’s true that these gadgets cost more than film cameras, they can often take higher-quality pictures and you don’t have the costs associated with buying and developing film. So as a trade for the up-front cost, as long as your digital camera and media holds up while you take pictures, the cost per picture is less. It’s for reasons like this that digital cameras have become such a hit in the world of photography.
