J.D. Power & Associates Bares Best Cameras

Nikon & Canon DSLRs

A recent study shows that the Canon EOS Digital SLR, Canon PowerShot G, Fujifilm Finepix S, Lumix (Panasonic) DMC-TZ, Nikon D and Sony Cyber-shot T series rank highest in customer satisfaction with digital cameras in their respective segments. This is according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2008 Digital Camera Usage and Satisfaction Study released Thursday.

The study examines camera model lines in four body-style segments: point and shoot, premium point and shoot, ultra slim and digital single-lens reflex (DSLR). In each segment, four factors are measured to determine customer satisfaction: picture quality, performance, ease of operation, and appearance and styling.

In the DSLR category, the Canon EOS Digital SLR and Nikon D series both rank highest, each receiving a score of 823 out of a perfect 1000. Canon tops it in picture quality while Nikon performs particularly well in ease of operation, performance, and appearance and styling.
