Online Photo Service usage continues to grow


Dennis Hissink : 2004-11-26 04:24:02
This year, 26% of Internet users have had photos posted to an online photo service, up from 19% in 2003, according to a recent survey conducted by InfoTrends/CAP Ventures. There are currently over 825 million photos stored at online photo services, and sharing and printing activity continues to increase. A new print method is introducing more users to the online space. It involves uploading photos to an online site, and picking up the prints at a local retail store. Just a few consumers are using this approach today, but it will help raise awareness of online photo services in general as retailers market their online-to-retail services to their regular customers.


Inkjet popularity is fueling media growth


Dennis Hissink : 2004-11-24 15:49:55
According to InfoTrends/CAP Ventures' research, nearly 80 million inkjet devices were installed last year, making this the dominant printer technology in the desktop arena. The number of inkjet multifunctional imaging devices installed in the U.S. is growing very quickly due to customers' desire for increased functionality within a single product. This increased desire has been a major enabler of the specialty media market. Out of the 116 billion prints produced on paper-based media by inkjet products in 2004, specialty media was used for nearly 30 billion of these prints. Commodity and specialty media are expected to experience steady growth between 2002 and 2007.


The 2.5 gigapixel photo - made in the Netherlands


Dennis Hissink : 2004-11-16 09:45:32
TNO has produced the largest digital panoramic photo in the world. So, what do we mean by large? After all, modern consumer cameras can easily take a picture with 5 million pixels. Well, we are talking about a photo of completely different dimensions. One with 2.5 billion pixels - that's 500 times more pixels. If this photo were printed, it would measure 6.67 m by 2.67 m (300 dpi). The photograph shows Delft and its surroundings in the autumn of 2004. It was taken the top of the Electrical Engineering faculty of Delft University, at a height of about 100 m, by TNO. The 2.5 gigapixel image is a composition of images rather than a single image. TNO developed a sophisticated approach to merge the many images - all 600 of them.

Kodak growing in Digital Camera market


Dennis Hissink : 2004-08-23 08:19:58
After a slow start, Eastman Kodak Co. is steadily gaining ground on front-runner Sony Corp. in the burgeoning U.S. digital camera market and opening up a lead on Canon, Olympus and other Japanese rivals. As digital cameras grew swiftly in popularity in recent years, Japanese manufacturers looked at first to have eaten Kodak's lunch. But the world's biggest film photography company is making good on its mission to become the No. 1 seller of filmless cameras on its home turf in 2004. In the first six months, Kodak shipped 1.47 million point-and-shoot digital cameras in the United States, 80 percent more than in the first half of 2003 - and its market share jumped from 15.3 percent to 18.3 percent, the market research firm IDC said Friday.


Consumer Digital Photo Printing Habits in detail


Dennis Hissink : 2004-07-16 02:45:26
A new consumer study from InfoTrends/CAP Ventures reveals clear skies as well as clouds on the horizon for the digital photo printing industry. The short-term outlook for the photo print industry is good. Among the positive signs are that digital camera users who print photos are taking far more pictures than they ever did with film and printing far more "enlargements" (larger than 4" x 6" prints). In addition, these users expect their print volumes to increase in the future. On the other hand, excluding a few ultra-heavy users, the average photo print volumes and expenditures for digital camera users are currently no higher than film camera households.
