Canon vs. Nikon Digital SLR Cameras
Aricale by

Canon vs. Nikon - which one? It's a common question that comes up
when consumers are comparing digital SLR cameras.
These two companies were the first to make the leap from film to digital,
and their initial presence in the market make them the dominant players.

Today Canon and Nikon constantly battle for the top spot in the SLR market,
while Olympus, Pentax, Sony, Panasonic and Sigma duke it out for a position in third.

If you pay attention to the digital SLR press releases, you'll notice a pattern:
when either Canon or Nikon announce a new camera designed to capture some niche
aspect of the market, the other company is soon to release a camera to compete.
