One camera, multiple names

A list of cameras with more than one name

You may be aware that some cameras from some manufacturers have different names in different countries. The obvious question is - why? It's a complicated matter, but essentially it all boils down to a scientifically tested and proven confuse a cat principle (see video). Clever marketing people just replaced cat with consumer, which makes total sense since both words start with the letter c. And there you have it. Mystery solved!

Many camera manufacturers were guilty of this practice in the past, but most came to their senses and now use 1 camera = 1 name. Good for them. And for us. Out of the big companies, only Canon and Panasonic still continue to use this practice for some of their product lines.

32% of Canon and 21% of Panasonic cameras in my database have multiple names. Dear Canon and Panasonic, if multiple names is such a brilliant idea, why not use it for ALL of your cameras?
