15% of digital camera owners never delete any images

The number of aggregate digital images captured per month continued to grow another 18 points in 2005, largely driven through cheaper flash memory card prices and increased capacities, IDC found. As a result, the total number of average monthly prints is expected to increase by 29% in 2005. However, printing behavior is changing with home printing continuing to decline in favor of retail locations. The mean number of digital images captured per month is 75. 14% of total digital camera owner respondents capture more than 100 images per month. 15% of total respondents never delete any images, while 6% delete all their images.
