Still and Video Cameras - US - March 2009
Affordable and easy-to-use digital cameras have transformed how U.S. consumers use photography, changing it from something used to document important occasions like weddings and trips to an integral part of everyday life. A large mass audience of consumers now own digital cameras, with product penetration for digital still cameras at least 48%.
Consumers are using digital photos to document their everyday lives and instantly share experiences by posting them online or e-mailing them to friends. However, even as consumers make good use of digital cameras, revenue growth has become increasingly challenging, due to high market penetration, sharp declines in consumer spending due to a lingering recession, and the wide availability of cameras in alternate devices such as cell phones.
