Camera Makers Look To CES For New Start

Camera Makers Look To CES For New Start

NEW YORK – Digital camera manufacturers will be looking to International CES as the transition from a year of hell to what they hope will be a new year of prosperity, if Mother Nature will cooperate.

Hit by a double whammy from the Fukushima earthquake and tsunami in Japan, followed months later by the flooding in Thailand that took out many camera and components factories, Japanese camera manufacturers will be scrambling to bring supplies back up to normal levels in the early weeks of 2012.

TWICE:What have been your most important products so far this year?

David Lee, Nikon: For us, obviously d-SLRs continue to drive the marketplace, and Nikon and another brand [Canon], continue to dominate the market, with a little over 92 percent of the marketplace. So, for us, that is a great place to be with the category growing like it is, and we continue to innovate with new products and plan on continuing that and continuing our promotions within that category.

TWICE: NPD numbers for Mother’s Day this year showed sluggish sales for the d-SLR category, yet sales really took off around Father’s Day. Is that saying something about the role of the female demographic? Was that just an anomaly?

Liz Cutting, NPD: I believe that was more than just than anomaly, as David mentioned.

David Lee, Nikon: It was supply.

Cutting: Yeah, we saw it in April and in May.

Lee: Devastating.

TWICE: How is the 3D photography market shaping up?

Stefan Guelpen, Panasonic: Today 3D is about 5 percent of overall TV sales and 20 percent in larger screen TVs, and I believe that’s because not everybody who purchases a 3DTV knows what it means or what it does. There is a significant reluctance to watch movies wearing glasses.

Imaging Consumers Prefer Cameras: NPD

PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. – A recent consumer study conducted by The NPD Group found that despite the growth of mobile phones with built-in cameras, the dedicated camera remains the image-capture device of choice by most consumers.

The finding was part of the market research company’s December 2010 Imaging Confluence Study, which said that digital still cameras account for the largest percentage of photos taken, at 51 percent.

The mobile phone followed in second place, at 42 percent.
