Each year the number of fancy cameras and lenses increases at HIFA but I am still to see the content of the festival grow proportionally. It seems since HIFA have dedicated cameras for certain shows but even they don't seem to upload enough content from the festival to create a huge internet buzz around the festival. The ratio between men and women with cameras and shooting at HIFA. The number increases when you add the number of photos taken by smartphones. Most of these end up on Facebook and transferred via Whatsapp so won't be seen in the public domain. As usual Canon was ahead of the pack. Some who had Nikon last year had migrated to Canon.
