If you live in one of the following locations: Boston, San Francisco, Montreal, London, Paris, Munich or Stuttgart, Singapore, Sydney, Seoul, Shanghai or Hong Kong then you could become a part of helping to shape the future of Kodak digital cameras. Kodak are conducting a global design and usability study in the above locations. All they need from you is a quick email with answers to a few simple questions, if chosen you'll be called by Kodak to discuss digital camera design and usability. Do you part, help to shape the future of digital cameras.

Kodak Design and Usability Study

Would you like to help shape the future direction of Kodak's digital camera designs? A team from Kodak's Corporate Design and Usability Research Lab will be carrying out a global study of digital camera use over the next three months. We are looking for digital camera owners who are interested in discussing their digital photography experiences with us.

We will be conducting in-home interviews with digital camera owners and their families, focusing on issues such as: how people use their cameras, how they file and find their photos on the computer, and what they do with their photos. Upon completion of the in-home interview, participants will be compensated $100 for their time.

We are looking for owners of Kodak Easy Share (DX 3500, 3600, or 3900), as well as owners of non-Kodak cameras, who have had the cameras for three months to one year. The study will take place in the following locations:

  • Boston
  • San Francisco
  • Montreal
  • London
  • Paris
  • Munich or Stuttgart
  • Singapore
  • Sydney
  • Seoul
  • Shanghai
  • Hong Kong

If you live in one of these cities and would be interested in participating in this study, please send the answers to the following questions to Mark.Rogers@kodak.com:

  • What is your name?
  • What city/town do you live in?
  • Who else lives with you?
  • What digital camera(s) do you own?
  • How long have you had your digital camera(s)?
  • What is/are the best phone number(s) and time(s) to call you?

Based on your reply to this message, a researcher will call you to ask some further questions that will help us select the final participants. He or she will then schedule a time for the interview with those people who meet the criteria and wish to participate. There are specific criteria and limited spaces for inclusion in the study, so your response to this message does not guarantee your participation.

We hope to hear from you soon, and we thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
Mark Rogers
