THE CAMERAS OF WORLD PRESS 2016

THE CAMERAS OF WORLD PRESS 2016 I am going to try to tell you what I remember from what I read earlier on today without actually double checking the article.
There is somewhat a 70-30 ratio of Canon vs Nikon users in this statistics.
I think the camera that captured the most photos was the 5D Mark III and only 2 photos were shot with a Nikon D4.

Wow, what am I going to do with this piece of information ? Realize that more reporters use Canon cameras.
Is there something to understand with these figures, I don’t know the article actually was a great journalistic work because it only stated facts and didn’t try to interpret them.
But I am not a journalist so I can extrapolate and analyse figures as I wish which is great.

At some point when I purchased the Nikon D4s and the Nikkor 70-200mm I wondered about switching this part of my equipment to Canon while keeping the rest of my gear Nikon.
I chose to take the Nikon D4s over its Canon equivalent but this is a mere technicality.
I think both systems are perfectly fine and then it all boils down to which system and lenses you acquired first.
But this has been said over and over.

Now what I wonder is why more Canon images got selected over Nikon images.
And to me it seems that there can only be 2 explanations :

- The most likely : more Canon photographers submitted their works.
- The less likely : the Canon shots had something to them that the Nikon didn’t.

So if I assume my first guess is right, it leads to the following question : Why do more reporters seem to shoot Canon ? And to this, I have really no answer !

As for the illustrating photo it is the winning shot of the year which was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II.
