The Reader's Choice Feature has been voted, signed, sealed and delivered!

The readers have voted, the poll has closed and the results are in! The Readers' Feature of choice is ... The Charts, to be posted at least once a week in this blog. Thank you readers for not making me review the Yellow Pages :-) So without further ado, here is the first Reader's Choice edition of The Charts!

Please keep in mind this is a snapshot of the Amazon best sellers, and no long term conclusions should be made based on just this one post! The categories below are extracted from the Amazon Top 100 Camera and Photo Best Sellers. Amazon updates these on an hourly basis but they appear to be using some sort of a weighted average algorithm to smooth it out.

2. Panasonic FZ8K
3. Canon A650 IS
4. Olympus SP-550uz
5. Fuji S6000fd
