Short Take: VGA making its mark on digital cameras

Entry-level digital cameras with video graphics array (VGA) resolution, which offer fewer features and smaller price tags than their standard point-and-shoot counterparts, are becoming a driving force behind the rapidly expanding digital camera market, according to new research from International Data Corp. VGA digital camera shipments in the United States soared to 565,000 units at the end of the second quarter, a 214 percent increase over the previous quarter. Polaroid leads the way with shipments of 265,000 units, a 36 percent market share, in the first half of 2000.
