45% of the World Press Photo Contest winners were photographed with Canon cameras

The World Press Photo Awards (WPP) represent the work of some of the world’s best photojournalists, and those interested will be keen to learn what equipment the professionals use in what are the Olympics of Documentary Photography.

Mirrorless or DSLR? APS-C or full frame? It can be very easy to get bogged down with equipment and focus on the best system. There is no right or wrong answer, as the best professionals can use any of the best cameras for professionals and get amazing results.

However, it is always interesting to know which group the best shooters in the world prefer. So, photolari collected data from this year’s WPP competition to decode the most common camera bodies that have been used to capture the highly praised and winning images.
