Popular Digital Cameras

Which brand to choose
Today, when the overall demand for digital cameras continues to grow, the shares of specific brands and models are evening out, so it’s becoming increasingly difficult to advise anything specific. Reliable data on the brands sold in Russia, of course, are not available, but according to the number of requests on the Internet in Russia, Canon digital cameras are most interested in more than 30%, then Olympus / Nikon – 15-17%, then Sony / FujiFilm – 10- 15%, then Konica-Minolta / Pentax / Samsung – less than 10% and, finally, Casio / Panasonic – about 5%. In this sense, we are closer to Europe than to America or Japan, where the statistics differ markedly from European. For example, Europeans also prefer Canon – a little less than 30%, then Nikon / Sony – about 12-15%, then Olympus – about 10%, followed by FujiFilm / Konica-Minolta / Kodak – 5-7%, then Panasonic / Pentax / Casio – about 5% and, finally, HP / Samsung – 1-2%.

But the market played a cruel joke with them: for example, the American company CVS Pharmacy decided to produce disposable digital cameras! While she is going to sell them only in her own pharmacies and under her own brand. To be more precise, two models were launched on the market at once: CVS Digital One-Time-Use Camera: the first, more expensive, has a 1.4 “LCD display on which you can view photos taken and delete failed ones, the second is devoid of a display, but it costs only $ 10 (with a display – $ 20). According to CVS Pharmacy, users can take up to 25 pictures, although the parameters of these pictures are not specified, nor are the technical characteristics of the cameras. Continue reading
