Digital Photography.

Thanks to the participation of the readers of MuyComputer with more than two thousand five hundred answers to the questionnaire, we have been able to know the opinion of the users about digital photography and in particular about reflex cameras. With this report we will know how many digital cameras and what type users have in their homes, in addition to other details on what they think about digital reflex cameras, if they plan to acquire one and if not, what would encourage them to do so.

The digital photography has entered little by little in our habitual uses until replacing the traditional one without hardly fussing. Storing our shots on a data medium, editing our photos, sharing them on the Internet ... has become commonplace. We have believed that at this stage of maturity of digital photography it is time to take the pulse.


For this we wanted to make a report in which more than two thousand five hundred people have participated (thanks also to the generous prize donated by Sony) in which some details are broken down on the use and opinion that digital photography deserves us after so many years installed between us. As an additional objective we wanted to put the accent on the digital SLR cameras.

SLRs have represented photography professionals and amateurs in the analog world with concerns beyond the takings for memory. A body independent of the lens and superior optical features to compact cameras attached to higher prices and greater complexity and versatility when taking photographs were, roughly, the credentials that made these models a partly unknown and partly admired breed. user on foot.


With the advent of digital photography, digital SLRs soon landed, bringing the flexibility and power of digital photography to the market of professionals and amateurs. At first timidly, the first cameras were received with suspicion, but nowadays digital SLRs are the irreplaceable tool of professional and amateur photographers.

We wanted to know, among other things, how photography users view digital SLR cameras. After a few years of settlement, the market already offers all kinds of models of this type of cameras, some really affordable. What do users think of reflex cameras? What opinion do you deserve? We will see the results.

Photographic park

The first step in the survey we have done has been to check how many cameras our readers have at home. There are not many surprises, the percentage of users who do not have a digital camera is very low, and they probably do not count as a digital camera the almost inevitable incorporation of their mobile phone.


Almost a third of the respondents, 31%, have two digital cameras, which clearly shows that not only digital photography has settled but users renew or complete their camera fleet in a considerable percentage. The 12% of users who have more than two cameras is also more than appreciable and reinforces the above.


By breaking down the figures in digital reflex cameras, we find that 78% of users do not have one. The percentage of 19% of users with a DSLR at home can be considered high. We can see a takeoff of this type of models that shows that different brands have managed to bring this type of devices to the user, especially in price.


The figures on the age of digital cameras available to our readers have shown an almost equitable distribution within the time frames we had established. The 27% of users with a camera with less than one year is a good figure and if we add this with the following band we find that 57% of users have a camera less than two years old.

Characteristics of the cameras

We give a twist in our study to know the qualitative impressions of the participants of the survey on the use and quality of digital cameras. It is striking with regard to the most important feature to make quality photos how 73% of users look at the quality of the optics compared to other qualities such as the resolution of the sensor that remain at 16%.


It seems that the war of the megapixel is over, and this is how the brands themselves seem to reflect that they focus on other qualities of the cameras in their successive evolutions. Perhaps too low the value given to the power of the image processor, 12%, which is one of the elements that is currently undergoing a more promising evolution.

Focusing on holiday use, most users are divided by the most important feature between the size and weight contained, 35%, and the autonomy of the battery, with 32%. That is to say, the user wants to constantly carry the camera on vacation and does not want to get in his way or leave him in the lurch at the worst moment.


On the other hand, the resistance and ease of use are in the background with 13 and 15%, respectively. It is seen that we have few adventurous readers ... It is striking comic and few have indicated the possibility of making videos as the most relevant feature in this section. A function that despite the improvements introduced in the latest models does not seem to interest too much during the holidays.
