CESDigital Photographer market report : Six segments of digital photographers exist according to a new Consumer Electronics Association analysis. The study, The Digital Photographer - Segmenting the Market to Gain Deeper Understanding, shows the segments are the Frustrated Photogs making up 25 percent of the market, Digital Curators (23 percent), One-Click Wonders (15%), Feature-Focused Photogs (16%), Picture Happy Socialites (10%) and Digital Mavericks (10%). “Understanding how digital photographers are naturally grouped together, based on similar thoughts, behaviors, attitudes, interests, etc., will help companies in the consumer electronics industry better serve these consumers’ needs,” said Chris Ely, CEA senior research analyst.

While only one percent of digital photographers consider themselves to be professionals or experts, the vast majority (63%) consider themselves to be average users.

However, 83% of digital photographers also own a cell phone and 27% own a smartphone. Looking at Digital Mavericks, the group with the most early adopters, only 56% are using a standalone camera, while 30% use cell phones or smartphones and 14% use digital camcorders showing a clear trend away from the single-purpose digital camera.
