Canon is Top eBay Search

Canon is the word most searched on eBay’s “Camera & Photo” category, according to a recent two-week survey by the Photo Marketing Association. Nikon and Sony came in second and third, respectively.

Canon Digital Rebel XT was the number one digital camera searched, most probably because of its recently announced price reduction. The Canon brand name was popular all around, including the Digital Camera Accessories category, over “sd card” and “Sony digital camera.”

Sony was also a popular search in the Cameras & Photo, Digital Cameras, and the Accessories categories, ranking as the third most commonly searched words across all three eBay categories. The two-week survey ended Nov. 22, and did not take into account the impact of Sony’s Nov. 24 announcement that eight of their Cyber-shot models were defective.
