Canon Beats Nikon 8-2 in December Photo Magazine Contests, Wins Year 71-56

Canon beat Nikon 8-2 in December’s reader photo contests in the two largest U.S. photo magazines – matching last month’s score exactly and wrapping up the year with a 71-56 win over Nikon for all of 2007.

The win for the year was Canon’s second in a row, with a significantly broader margin than last year’s 89-83.

Canon beat Nikon 3-0 in Popular Photography and Imaging’s “Your Best Shot” contest for December, following up on 2-1 wins two months in a row, then went on to outscore Nikon 5-2 in Shutterbug’s “Picture This!” feature for a total score of Canon 8, Nikon 2. Other brands scored three hits in Shutterbug but none in Pop, also the same as last month.

All other brands combined totaled 37 for the year, compared with 43 last year. That means Nikon and Canon together outscored all others together nearly four to one.

The year ended with five months won by Canon, four by Nikon and three tied.

Popular Photography and Imaging and Shutterbug run photo contests for readers each month. The majority of winning photos are shot with either Nikon or Canon cameras, and tracks the winners as a means of keeping score in the perennial argument among photographers of which brand is better.
