  • Some idea for MLW friends.

    Hi,

    Like most of you, Our film counts half of last year, we had to install a d-carrier type of thing onto QSS 2611, but still, the revnue from digital are far less than the loss of film process.

    I had feeling that the digital printing will not be our future sulotion, simply because, now we are not only competeting with other labs around us but also competeting with different industry people, this is showing at digital prints price, it never be a high profit service like before, in the last 6 month, we had to reduce price from 65 cents to 30 cents. god knows what will be next year.

    Less profit and low volume, I don't think those people had invested $100,000 on digital lab can make this business sound.

    We had changed our attention into retail areas since service has its limited future, now we paid much of our time to look after our retail sector, more display frames, alburns, cards, and even digital camera etc.

    Let me tell you, the results is wonderful, we managed to keep our total sales stady, we see the future, the real glowth, we are even think to move to a bigger place.

    The reason is this,

    everyday, the number of people passing by of you front door are never be different, they are now visiting your store less than before because they had digital camera, this is a fact we can not affort to ignor. We can not hope one day they will change mind and go back to film.

    But they have more money in their porket because they will never be needing to buy a film and to process it, what they are going to spend on? if you don't give them the reason to spend in your store, it will go somewhere...

    Our result shown that those extra money can be yours by giving them more goods, more style, more excitment.

    If we can do it so as you!

    Never say loss.

    I dont think any thing can stop photography from growing I am seeing this from the age of Black & White . When color came people used to say this is end of professional photography. Nothing happened it has grown many folds since then.
    Kodak Kb10 was a rev. product in late 90's which made photography easy for low income group. (at least in my part of world).
    still I think stores should concentrate more on instant prints, camera accessories, memory cards ,chargers, albums, frames etc.
    this industry will grow with time i suppose there is no end to it.
    Thanks to EASTMAN KODAK.
    regards

      I thoroughly enjoyed your comments. Your message is so engaging that I went back to black & white time. By any measure your message is very effective and educator. I found your comments very encouraging, especially to those are involve in instant prints.

          Hi
          this is amit again i remember an instance i was travel ling in an train i came across an article in INDIA TODAY about digital ( not photography but in all) I will like to state only one line which i remember to this day " A DAY WILL COME WHEN ONE OF THE LARGEST MOBILE MANUFACTURER WILL TURN INTO BIGGEST CAMERA MANUFACTURER OR VICE VERSA" .
          this is around 5 yrs back i was really surprised to read it .
          now mobiles are coming with 8 m.p cameras , i dont think we r far away when we will see NIKON,CANON, OLYMPUS coming up with mobile having integrated camera.
          All these china mobile are slowly replacing low end film cameras, and frankly speaking this will help a lot to photography, because all those who cant afford

            high rate digital cameras they using it , mind it these are our future costumer some day they will realize importance of photo in day to day life and we will have a whole new lot of people entering our stores.
            this might sound a bit optimistic .................. I have a belief until the mass is not touched u cant get consistent revenues and i have reason to believe it looking the way om telephone companies have progressed in INDIA after incoming was made free.
