ePHOTOzine's gallery is bursting with work from talented photographers and as so many photos are uploaded to the gallery daily, we thought it would be interesting to take an annual look at which cameras are being used the most to capture the images you're sharing with us all.  

You can find more information on each camera by clicking on the camera names featured in the list, plus we've included 'buy' buttons as due to the age of some of the cameras, you will more than likely be able to pick up a bargain should you be interested. 

Nikon and Canon dominate the top 10 but we have listed some of the most popular cameras from other brands at the end, so you can see if your camera is a popular choice.

1. Canon EOS 7D Mark II 

Canon EOS 7D MarkII (11)

Commenting on the Canon EOS 7D Mark II in our review (2015), we said: "For those with an investment in Canon lenses, or for those that have a specific range of Canon lenses they would like to use, the Canon EOS 7D Mark II offers extremely fast focusing and continuous shooting. The camera has a professional quality weather sealed body and should last a significant number of years, particularly if the previous 7D is anything to go by, as the 7D is still in use by a number of people today."

2. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV 

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is the fourth version of the highly popular 5D series and brings with it a number of improvements that make it a highly competitive full-frame Digital SLR. For the working professional, the updates, including IPTC meta-data, Wi-Fi (with FTP support), and GPS, will be extremely welcome, and the 5D Mark IV is likely to find itself equally popular, and extremely desirable for many.

3. Canon EOS 5D Mark III 


Commenting on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III in our review (2012), we said: "The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is an excellent camera, capable of taking stunning photos in a wide variety of situations and has a wealth of lenses available to go with it. The 5D Mark III would make an excellent choice for anyone with an investment in Canon lenses and equipment, as well as those upgrading from the Mark II."

Nikon D500

In our review of the Nikon D500, we said: "The Nikon D500 offers excellent ISO performance, along with the latest connectivity and some truly useful features. The camera also offers excellent auto white balance performance, which improves image quality thanks to delivering excellent colour and saturation. The focus system is shared with the much more expensive Nikon D5, and the automated AF fine-tune system can help speed up the calibration of your camera and lenses. All of this combines to deliver excellent image quality."

Commenting on the Nikon D800 in our review (2012), we said: "The Nikon D800 performs extremely well, build quality is very good, and the camera gives excellent handling with a solid metal body and weather sealing the camera should be suitable for almost any landscape or outdoors project."

7. Nikon D7100

Commenting on the Nikon D7100 in our review (2013), we said: "The Nikon D7100 is an impressive update to the D7000, providing a higher resolution 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, but not only that, it also provides the ability to take the sharpest possible images thanks to the lack of optical low pass filter (OLPF)."

8. Nikon D850 

Nikon D850


Here are our thoughts on the Nikon D850: "The Nikon D850 offers an impressive specification, and thanks to a BSI CMOS sensor gives both high-resolution and excellent noise performance. The big question for many will be, do I need it, and can I afford it? If you need it, then the D850 is unlikely to disappoint. However, if you don't need it, it's likely that you will still want it, and the Nikon D850 is a DSLR to aspire to."

9. Nikon D750 

Nikon D750


In our review of the Nikon D750, we said: "The Nikon D750 delivers excellent image quality with low noise, and a number of customisation options to deliver images to your own personal tastes. Handling is very good with a large rubber grip and ample buttons and controls on the outside of the camera so that you can avoid using the menu system if you prefer. A number of built-in editing options, RAW processing, and video editing could save a lot of time as you are able to edit and customise photos and videos away from the computer. The Nikon D750 delivers improved noise performance when compared to the D610, and for those looking for a "traditional" Digital SLR the Nikon D750 comes Highly Recommended."

Commenting on the Nikon D810 in our review (2014), we said: "Build quality is very good, and the camera gives excellent handling with a solid metal body and weather sealing the camera should be suitable for almost any landscape or outdoors project. The camera delivers impressive image quality, handles noise well and video quality is also good."

Android and iPhone technology has killed the consumer camera for the convenience offered. The mid and high end range of DSLRs may just survive within the realm of the enthusiast due to the assessor is they have eg long lens, but even this aspect is . I was on a safari recently with a nephew. I had a full kit of full and crop frame DSLR, 600mm f4 plus 1.4x converter and 70-200mm f2.8 with 1.4x converter. Nephew used iPhone and an Apple tablet. His picture quality was very reasonable but did not have reach. He addressed this by cropping. His intended use was to display on a screen, the occasional 5x9 print. He scoffed at my kit and saw it as inconvenient as he could not stick the pics instantly on to social media, etc.. His highlight was when a adult lioness sidled past his open car window and he captured the moment with a video with his IPhone. He was amazed that he could have stroked her without having to reach out as she was about 9 inches away.
The convenience of the mobile phone cannot be surpassed by the digital DSLR and it be destined to be the preserve of the enthusiast.

The top 3 cameras were Canon, do you have counts for these
The majority of cameras were Nikon, are there counts for these.
Where was Sony etc? Have they not penetrated the ePhotozine uploading demographic?

Hi Stuart,

The most popular full-frame mirrorless camera (based on photos uploaded to ePHOTOzine, over the last 12 months), was the Canon EOS RP, followed by the A7R II.

My theory is that Canon / Nikon release a smaller number of cameras, so if you want a professional body APS-C camera, you buy the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (as that's the only option from Canon), or the D500 (ditto, Nikon), but if you want a Sony full-frame mirrorless camera, there's a choice of 8 or 9 different bodies.

Hope that helps,
