Nikon rules the ivory tower.

The data crunchers at CPOY plotted the shutter, aperture, focal length and camera choice for the 636 sports action entries for the 2009 contest. I want all contests to create pie charts for the public. World Press Photos, NPPA contest or maybe even monthly clips!

I’m impressed that anyone can capture a sports moment with a Canon Rebel. Those photographers should get honorable mention for effort in the face of equipment adversity. Is Nikon giving away free D3s? Everyone seems to own one.

According to the judges’ blog, D3 college shooters opted for a 300mm and a 1/1000 f/2.8 combo. Now go shoot some football.

  1. HOW is this possible? I didn’t have $5K for a camera when I was in college. Though I did drop $3,700 on a used D1 at one point.

    I am begging, literally begging for a D3 at my newspaper these days. You’d think I was asking for a Porsche Panamera Turbo for a company car or something. Ridiculous.
