d-SLR Cameras Continue To See Growth

NEW YORK - As the still-worrisome economy continues to keep discretionary purchases of digital cameras down while the U.S. household penetration rate approaches the 80 percent mark, camera manufacturers are leaning more and more on interchangeablelens models to drive growth and profitability.

This year a combination of enthusiasm for the features of d-SLR cameras and new mirrorless interchangeablelens hybrids continues to entice average point-and-shoot users bitten by the photo bug.

New Tech, d-SLRs To Drive Holiday Sales

New Tech, d-SLRs To Drive Holiday Sales

By Editors of TWICE On Aug 30 2010 - 4:01am




TWICE: What are you looking at as your big holiday movers this year?

Peter Palermo, Kodak: For us, pocket video remains very strong. It continues to amaze us. We find that it’s not just the skateboarding 17-year-old teenagers who are doing some crazy things and trying to capture them on video to upload to YouTube, it’s Mom’s and Dad’s. Our pocket video cameras offer still capture, and even in video post-capture you can extract stills from videos. Consumers really aren’t using them for that purpose at this point.

Growth Returns To d-SLR, Hybrid Cams

Growth Returns To d-SLR, Hybrid Cams

By Greg Tarr On Jul 18 2011 - 12:01am




NEW YORK — Last year, one of the shining stars of U.S. camera business was the d-SLR, as consumers in increasing numbers looked to advance the limited shooting experience they enjoyed using smartphones and highly automatic point-and-shoots with more elaborate models allowing creative flexibility.

Come 2011, a combination of sustained economic doldrums and the shock of the tragic tsunami in Japan limited last year’s impressive growth rates somewhat as a number of factories struggled to get back online.
