(Wednesday, September 19, 2001 - 17:31 EDT)

Newcomer ranks well after six months in the retail digital camera market...

SiPix Inc., the spinoff of contract manufacturer SiPix Group which was formed in January 2001, has announced a strong performance in its first six months of its first year in business. The company has distributed a press release noting that in a top ten list of companies shipping point-and-shoot digital cameras released by market research firm IDC, it has been placed in tenth position - an impressive achievement for a company so young in a market so competitive.

SiPix currently sells three digital cameras models, including:
  • iQuest DualCam - an entry-level VGA fixed focal length digital camera with 2MB memory and videoconferencing webcam capability
  • SC-1300 - a 1.3 megapixel fixed focal length camera with CompactFlash storage
  • SC-2100 - a 2.1 megapixel fixed focal length camera with CompactFlash storage
Three further models announced last June, but not yet shipping, include:
  • SP-1300 Shoot & Share - a 1.3 megapixel DPOF-compliant fixed focal length camera with CompactFlash storage, which can be connected directly to a photo printer without the need for a computer
  • iQuest Roam - a fixed focal length CompactFlash camera, resolution unannounced
  • SCP-1000 Shoot & Print - a VGA fixed focal length camera with 4MB memory and a built-in color printer.
Whilst expensive, high-end consumer or pro cameras tend to dominate the news and public interest, sales volumes are much higher at the low-end of the market which is dominated by cameras where simplicity and ease-of-use are key. SiPix's accomplishment says plenty about the size of this market, and bodes well for other manufacturers as camera prices continue to fall...
