Considerable data is available on consumers and their photo and video behaviors, including the kinds of cameras they use; the number of pictures they take; the amount of video they shoot; how, where, and with whom they share; and how, where, and how much they print. Yet comparatively little is known about the motivations for those behaviors, the reasons for the choices that they make, and what influences their daily photo activities.
Today’s consumers are likely to own multiple cameras and other devices that can take pictures and shoot video. Long after the purchase decisions, they make a number of choices (conscious and unconscious) every time they use any of those devices to communicate, share moments, or preserve memories with family and friends.
Their choices span the spectrum of the imaging ecosystem, including capture, viewing and sharing, storage, creative projects, and output. Their preferences may be well established, but may change frequently, depending on occasion, location, or even mood. They are influenced by a variety of factors – some technical and others decidedly not – that include image quality, convenience, spontaneity, social setting, connectivity, privacy concerns, and more.
This study will use a combination of research methods to consider consumer behavior along the imaging continuum:
This study will provide vendors and service providers with information to help them understand how to influence consumers and their imaging choices, as well as the products and services that will help satisfy consumers’ unmet needs related to photo and video expression. It will consider where revenue opportunities may lie, and how vendors can remain relevant in both digital and print worlds.
It will also examine key questions such as:
Analysis & Project Deliverables
There will be extensive analysis of all research to develop a comprehensive understanding of the opportunities and issues for vendors/service providers in the social photo and video space. Clients will receive the following:
