Reuters has published the best photos of 2012. It’s a collection of 95 images, warning some images contain graphic content or nudity.

Reddit user hallbuzz went through all the images and copied all 95 EXIF data entries. Tallied them all up and created this list with rankings of cameras, lenses and settings. Another Reddit user, mathiasa has then gone and turned the data into a series of charts. +1 for Reddit users!



Prime Lenses

Zoom Lenses

Shutter Speed



So what does all of this mean? Well Reddit users might have a lot of time on their hands and the most popular equipment and settings for 2012 is a Canon 1D Mark IV with a 16-35mm lens, set at 1/320s, f/2.8 and ISO 200.

There is a mistake in the last row, it should be 1/320s instead of 1/32s.

Otherwise really interesting.
