According to research commissioned by Nikon, 327 million Royal Wedding-related photos will be taken on digital cameras on Friday 29 April.

The survey of 1,421 UK adults also found that:
  • 65 million photos of wedding-related events will be shared on social networking sites.
  • 49% of people questioned said they'd be taking photos so they can capture a historical moment.
  • 24.7% said the photos they take will help them have their own memories of the big day.
  • The moment most people want to capture is the first glimpse of William and Kate as a married couple (35.1%). While the famous balcony kiss came in second place with 27.3%.
  • 23% of people questioned plan to attend a street party, and 15% plan to travel to London to view the procession.
To celebrate the Royal Wedding, Nikon has teamed up with Arthur Edwards, royal photographer at The Sun, to give some expert tips and tricks on how to capture the big day.

Amazing .. whenever I read these news posts I never see a comment so I saw the wedding one and just knew some misery would be on here moaning about the cost (and I was right) :o) ... lets cancel the olympics, as well if we have to look at every significant national event on a profit/loss basis. 1.5 million expected tourists attending, each spending money in shops, travel, accomodation, souvenirs, taxis, return visits, business profits from related activity, national pride and historical ignificance that will continue in an immeasurable way beyond our own time .. It seems that even tho the moaners are quite vocal, the whole world is following this event and we can at least be sure despite the outgoing expense and lost production, that most of us will say thank you for the day off and take it (I know many of us have talked about an extra bank holiday EVERY YEAR on something like St George's Day - and who gives a damn about that anyway), and how many will not watch and use their costly day for some more mundane activity and still moan about lost production and overtime costs but still accept the paid time off anyway. There will be massive economic activity and tourism that will continue long after the event which will be gratefully received ... Come to think of it .. all these galleries and museums that are free or non-profit ... all the cultural causes that would die without millions upon millions that benefit very few .. opera, theatre funding, ballet etc etc lets cancel the lot :o) What would be left really with no culture, no monarchy, no sporting international events etc .. to use your phrase .. 'get real'. I am not a real royalist (certainly not the extended family) but I am bored with the moaning brit attitude.
