European Digital Photography|
"Europeans are very active digital photographers that capture photos frequently and store many of them," commented Mette Eriksen, an Analyst at InfoTrends/CAP Ventures. "Consumer requirements vary significantly by demographics and by region. Vendors who wish to increase profits and sales volumes need to understand these differences and develop strategies to target the growing segments."
InfoTrends / CAP Ventures - Printing
The home is the most popular printing location and is also the place where the largest number of photos are produced. This is changing as retailers increase consumer awareness through advertising, marketing, and low prices. 23% of digital camera owners currently report printing photos at retail, compared to 68% who said they print at home.
