InfoTrends Study Says Tablets are Good for the Industry

November 2nd, 2011

Tablets-good.jpgThere’s an ongoing debate on what cell
phones, especially smart phones, mean for the photography industry.
Tablets like the iPad are becoming more popular and there’s similar
debate on what that means for photographers. The folks over at
InfoTrends
did a study on tablets and things are looking very good.

According to the report, over half of
tablet owners use digital cameras on a regular basis, while 62
percent used smartphones for photography on a regular basis.
Compared to the general population, that’s a significant amount of
digital camera use.

Tablet owners were also found to print
more photos than others, and more likely to use a printing service
instead of a printer in their home.

This is good news for the photo
industry, according to InfoTrends group director Ed Lee. “This
opens up new opportunities for the imaging industry,” he says,
encouraging businesses to “offer new products and services
geared toward this emerging market segment.”
