Pri nežnejšem spolu Kodak bolj priljubljen

Po raziskavah podjetja Lyra Research's 2004 UR Digital Photography Suvery, več kot 20 procentov predstanic nežnejšega spola na ameriškem trgu uporabljajo digitalne fotoaparate podjetja Kodak. Medtem, ko moška populacija uporablja samo 10 procentov Kodak-kovih izdelkov. Očitno moške bolj privlačijo Canon-ovi digitalni fotoaparati, saj le te zasedajo 17 procentov deleža na trgu.

Predstavnik in direktor Lyra, Charles LeCompte, navaja, da se ženske nekoliko težje soočajo z najnovešjo tehnologijo, zato pa se posvečajo priznanim znamkam. "In seveda največja znamka v fotografiji je Kodak" je še omenil Charles.

Newtonville, MA (April 20, 2005)—According to Lyra Research's 2004 U.S. Digital Photography Survey, more than 20 percent of women surveyed use a Kodak digital camera, while only 10 percent of men made Kodak their brand of choice. Men appear to prefer Canon digital cameras, with almost 17 percent of male respondents using that brand.



"The explanation is that women in general are less comfortable with technology and therefore are more attracted to trusted brands," says Charles LeCompte, president of Lyra and director of Lyra's Digital Photography Advisory Service."And the biggest brand in photography is, of course, Kodak."

The primary goal of the survey was to examine the photo-printing behavior of a representative sample of U.S.-based digital photographers. The survey also asked users about many other issues, including their photo-taking, photo-storage, and photo-sharing habits and their use of camera phones. Further gender differences identified include that women own less equipment in general than men, do less with the equipment they own, and prefer products that are technologically the simplest. Perhaps most interestingly, women prefer printing direct from their camera or direct from a docking station. At least some of these differences can be attributed to the busy lives that many women lead—many juggle child and family care with taking care of their homes, running home businesses, and/or working full-time jobs for others, all of which limits their time to explore and adopt more complex technologies.

Sem kar mal skeptičen glede izjave, da je Kodak najbolj popularen...

najbrž govorimo o dig. aparatih na splošno, ne dslr, a ne? in ravno v ameriki je nikon baje bolj priljubljen, tako, da ne vrjamem, da bi pri nas imel kaj večji procent, mogoče v dslr svetu.
glede kodaka je pa jasno, zakaj tak procent. moški že vemo, kaj je pameten nakup in ne poslušamo trgovcev (ki so tudi večinoma moški, saj pr foto robi), ti pa ženskam prodajajo robo, ki ne gre, hehe..

mam pa še eno teorijo, ki je še bolj verjetna: v času trafik in podbnega, si lahko zraven šminke, nogavic in podobnega še zmerom lahko kupil(a) kakšen kodakov film, drugega ponavadi ni bilo na policah. in navada je pač ostala, saj vemo kdo hodi v trafike, hehe..

Zanimivo da je HP na zelo visokem mestu.
Kljub dejstvu da ima zelo malo in dokaj zastarele modele na trgu.
