Good news, camera makers! According to CIPA, sales of digital cameras are improving. In fact, looking at December 2016 data, there’s actually a year-on-year increase in net shipments. For this Readers’ Choice category, our winner is Canon, which garnered 28% of the votes. For the benefit of those not keeping track, the Japanese camera maker introduced quite a few compact cameras last year. We’ve the PowerShot G7 X Mark II and SX720 HS in early 2016, followed by the PowerShot SX620 HS with 25x zoom soon after. And barely into 2017, we already have the PowerShot G9 X Mark II and new IXUS cameras.
