Photographers Embrace Digital SLRs


Nearly 80 percent of profession-al photographers own digital SLR cameras, according to a recent InfoTrends/CAP Ventures survey. At least 52 percent of those surveyed said that they plan to purchase a new digital SLR within a year.

Photographers also are taking a large number of shots, averaging 482 per week for digital users. The vast majority of these images are saved to a computer, and nearly 65 percent of the photos taken are edited with digital tools.
