Adorama Unveils Top 10 Best-Selling Digital Cameras, 4 Pro Best-Sellers of 2015

Adorama Recently Unveiled Its Top 10 Best-Selling Digital Cameras, Plus Four of Its Top-Selling Pro Cameras, of 2015; In 2015, the Canon EOS 70D Was the Top-Selling Digital Camera, and the Nikon D750 Was the Best-Selling Pro Camera

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2015) - Adorama, one of the world's largest photography, video and audio, imaging and electronics retailers, recently unveiled its 10 best-selling digital cameras of 2015, plus four of its top-selling full-frame pro models.

Rather surprisingly, serious cameras are now outselling simple, low-cost compact digital cameras--a reversal of trends from a few years ago.

Other notable trends gleaned from Adorama's camera sales in 2015 include the following:

1. The continuing popularity of digital single-lens reflex cameras;
2. The consumer's continuing preference for APS sensor-based cameras (although full-frame is catching up in popularity); and
3. The gradual disappearance of self-contained, compact digital cameras (which are being replaced by smartphone cameras).

Adorama's Top 10 Best-Selling Digital Cameras in 2015

1. Canon EOS 70D

Two years after its introduction, the Canon EOS 70D tops Adorama's best-seller list. Superlative features include a 20.2 megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor (23.7X15.7mm), a wider ISO range (100-25,600), built-in Wi-Fi, full HD video, a flip-out 3-inch touch screen LCD with 1.040k dot resolution, and an intelligent viewfinder with superimposed LCD display.

Whether you're shooting an HD or an SD video, this Canon 20-megapixel camera can deliver with its dual-pixel CMOS AF that allows the camera's autofocus to function smoothly. It also helps the camera focus faster, so you'll never miss a shot. This feature makes the Canon EOS 70D ideal for sports events and family gatherings.
