    Default Nikon & Canon statistic

    Yes, I'm too free now and nothing to do, so I turned analytical.

    Here are some Nikon & Canon statistic for this forum.

    Threads Posts
    Canon 9,135 138,011

    Nikon 8,641 167,022

    Base on the statistic, Canon users or Cannon wannabes asked more questions and have less to say than Nikon users & Nikon wannabes.

    It seem that Nikon users are more passionate about Nikon or maybe Nikon users are just more long winded.

    oh well.... there used to be user that posted tonnes of things in nikon thread... take note: nikon only

    he's the person with the highest number of posts back then and 90% of his thread is in nikon... in a way he contributed to the high post in nikon thread.
    09 Oct 09 officially marks the date I become a canon convert.

    Just go out there and shoot shoot shoot

    Time spent on debating Canon vs Nikon could be use to shoot more pictures..

    If you know what you need, won't there be less to ask?

    Isn't it obvious? More Canon users were probably conned into buying Canon and when it didn't meet their expectations, so naturally they will ask more questions. I think for someone who know nuts about DSLR or photography, when they step into a shop wanting to buy a camera, the salesperson will automatically try to sell a Canon because the profit is higher.

    People who buy Nikon already know what they wanted, so it's just more of a higher level discussion than just newbie questions. Salespeople hate to sell Nikon and will not recommend Nikon unless the customer asks for it because the profit margin is not high.

    If he's who I think he is, he's with Canon now.

    Think it's quite true. Just overheard a saleman hardselling a Canon 400D to a lady the other day at Best Takashimaya. Guess the lady bought it in the end, hope she will not regret it.

    To be fair... it happens to both camps lah... some also bought the D40 and found that they cannot autofocus with 50mm f/1.8.

    I think this discussion will go nowhere....

    Wow, you must be 1 of the most diehard nikon fans around... just from thread statistics you can infer that ppl were "conned" in to buying canon?

    seriously.. i hope this doesnt turn into a flaming thread.

    i own quite a number of canon and nikon systems. and each has their pros and cons. so, it all depends what the user preference is. no offence but i seriously think the TS is freaking bored in making this thread and gathering such statistics.

    peace out
    Nikon!

    Not sure if that is really true, but I personally experienced something like this. I walked into the shop intending to buy a Nikon, but was swayed to buy a Canon. Two years later, I bought a Nikon anyway, this time from fellow CSers!

    People, take it easy. No flaming, just interpret the statistic in your own ways.

    Everybody is entitled to their opinion and their views on the statistic since there is no right and wrong. Have fun and let's see how interesting it can get.

    Any flamer will be a self-proclaim retard.
