Digital cameras continue to advance as time goes by. Manufacturers compete against each other the reason why they make it a point to add more features to their new models. The upgrade takes place in just a short time so it's worth educating yourself about the brands and the features you want in a camera.

For 2012, the survey results are out as to which brand is on the Top 5. Canon is the winner according to Sortable, an online buying guide site. The results showed that a third of customers prefer to buy Canon digital cameras. Canon's share is seven percent more than Nikon which is gained a 26 percent share.

In terms of the type of camera, the Sortable survey showed that consumers differ in their choices. Of those surveyed, 36 percent wanted DSLRs, 36 percent chose point and shoot cameras while 22 percent preferred the mirrorless cameras. With the increase in preference for the mirrorless units, however, Sortable said that other manufacturers can climb up the top spot. Meanwhile, the top 5 list of Digital Camera Review.com confirmed the high rank of Canon cameras. The site's February 2012 most popular digital cameras list showed Canon's PowerShot units occupying the top three spots.

At number one is PowerShot ELPH 300 HS which features a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor. This new sensor aims to give the unit faster speed and improve its low light image quality. It captures quality images and videos. Another great feature is the super slow motion video mode.

The PowerShot SX40 HS is on the third spot. It has a 35x optical ultra zoom lens, a 2.7-inch adjustable display and high definition video. In terms of size, it is similar to an entry level DSLR but cheaper in price.
