Luckily I was holding a Canon camera, as mainly everyone else who feels “always delighted”. Canon remains the number one camera manufacturer worldwide if you list Powershots line-up (19 percent), followed by Sony (17.9 percent from previous 16.9) and Nikon (12.6 percent). Check out the chart IDC chart after the cut.
