Digicam owners want more!
According to Asutralian ITNews, a survey done by Decision Analyst for Circuit City showed that 86 percent of digital cameras owners bought the cameras so they'd "know instantly whether they got the picture they wanted." The survey also found that 80% said it is important to be able to print only the pictures they want. Another finding was that digicam owners aren't entirely happy with their purchases: 65% want higher resolution, 14% seek smaller more stylish designs and 8% want a better lens. -- Posted Wednesday, May 3, 2006 by chb
