(Weymouth, MA) August 16, 2012…Over the years, a variety of devices (e.g., smartphones, tablets, connected TVs) have been introduced that enables users to stay connected without being tethered to a desktop. Some of these connected devices offer functionalities that rival those of personal computers, with the added benefit of being wireless and portable. They can also enhance the overall experience of more traditional devices such as digital cameras.
InfoTrends’ Smartphones, Tablets, and Connected TVs: Changing the Digital Imaging Landscape report analyzes findings from a survey of over 1,300 U.S. consumers about their use of smartphones, tablets, and connected TVs for a variety of business and recreational tasks. One interesting finding was that nearly 75% of smartphone users who also take digital photos or shoot digital video would be “somewhat” or “extremely” interested in the ability to wirelessly transfer photos or video from their digital camera to their smartphone. Furthermore, 68% of those respondents said that having that ability would actually cause them to use their digital camera more. Many consumers own multiple photography devices and the ability to easily transfer content between these devices will help encourage the viewing, sharing, and printing of photos from both connected and non-connected devices.
