Digital Camera Failure Rates: - SquareTrade

In an effort to keep consumers more informed about the reliability of the products they buy, over the past year and a half, SquareTrade has taken a look at the failure rates of many types and brands of laptops, cell phones, and game consoles. This time we turn our attention to digital cameras. In this reliability report, SquareTrade examines digital camera reliability from a few different angles. We start with an overview of digital camera failures, both from manufacturer defects and accidents. We then compare camera reliability by brand and price point. This analysis examines customer reported failure data from a sample of over 60,000 new digital cameras purchased by SquareTrade warranty customers (see Appendix for sample details). SquareTrade offers warranty plans that cover accidental damage as well as hardware failures, and we consider malfunctions from normal usage (“malfunctions”) separate from accidents (“accidents”) in our analysis. We refer to “total failure rate” as the sum of failure rates due to malfunctions and accidents. Among our conclusions, we found that almost 11% of digital cameras fail over the first 2 years of ownership, with 6.6% of failures coming from malfunctions and 4.1% from accidents. We also found the least expensive point-and-shoot digital cameras to be the least reliable, while expensive DSLR cameras tended to be the most reliable. This correlation between price and reliability was also found in SquareTrade’s earlier research on laptop computers as well. When we break the reported malfunction analysis down by brand and price, Panasonic clearly emerges as the most reliable brand of point-and-shoots. For example, on inexpensive point-and-shoot cameras, Panasonic had a malfunction rate of just 5.3% over the first 2 years. On the opposite end of the spectrum are Casio and Polaroid, with 2 year malfunction rates of 13.0% and 11.9% respectively. Now let’s delve into the data and take a look at the numbers. Please note that this study only includes digital cameras. Whenever we use the word camera, we are only referring to digital cameras.

The credit crunch and firm growth in the euro area

This paper explores the effects of bank credit on firm growth before and after the recent financial crisis outbreak, taking into account different structural characteristics of the banking sector and the domestic economy. The econometric method of panel quantiles is used on a large sample of 2075 firms operating in the euro area (17 countries) for the period 2005-2011. The main results of this paper indicate a strong dependence of firm growth on credit expansion before the crisis. However, post-2008, the credit crunch seems to seriously affect only slow-growth firms and especially those operating in domestic bank-dominated economies. Furthermore, the classification of firms in groups by size yields interesting results: the credit crunch exhibits a strong impact on small firms only. Separate estimates for more and less financially developed economies show that the credit crunch matters mainly in countries with a lower degree of financial development. Moreover, our findings reveal that the degree of banking concentration affects firm growth in a negative way in most estimates. Finally, risk and financial stability matter for firm growth for the total sample and for domestic bank-dominated economies, while in general they do not matter when markets are dominated by foreign banks.
