We have an evolution (or intelligent design if you prefer) of The Charts feature. We are trying a third variation, by looking at the top five DSLRs at Calumet Photo. This is a "time lapse" Chart, as it strings together a series of Top 5 Charts. The source of the data is the Calumet Photo e-newsletter. The dates are the dates a new e-newsletter is sent out.
We are using shortcut names in the table for space-saving reasons. Here is the mapping to their full names. You will also find a list of reviews for each DSLR, the links point to the DSLR Map profile page for each DSLR:
- D300: Nikon D300 body only. D300 reviews
- 40D: Canon 40D body only. Canon 40D reviews
- D80: Nikon D80 body only. Nikon D80 reviews.
- D3: Nikon D3 body only. Nikon D3 reviews.
