Canon Beats Nikon 8-2 in November Photo Magazine Contests

Canon beat Nikon 8-2 in November’s reader photo contests in the two largest U.S. photo magazines, taking a hard-to-beat hold on its year-to-date lead as the end of the year approaches and tying monthly wins at four each.

Canon beat Nikon 2-1 in Popular Photography and Imaging’s “Your Best Shot” contest for the third month in a row, then went on trounce Nikon 6-1 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.

The numbers expand Canon’s lead for the year to 63-54 – a nine-point margin that makes it all but impossible for Nikon to come from behind with only one month left in the year. (Canon led Nikon 55-52 last month.) All others combined now total 34. Canon and Nikon now have four winning months each, with three months tied. Canon won 2006 89-83 with all other brands combined accounting for 43 photos.

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.
