I guess it means that digital cameras have the sales volume to amortise engineering costs easily, with the average life cycle of a digital camera, I assume all digital cameras now on the market have been designed with this EU directive in mind, whereas the perceived situation with film cameras is that the re-engineering costs of even a small part of an existing camera (e.g. the circuit board in the metering prism of an otherwise all-manual camera) are uneconomic!
