Consumers beginning to want Wi-Fi enabled digital cameras


For years we've been thinking it was just us, but more and more people are apparently wanting their next camera to be Wi-Fi enabled, it has been revealed.

A recent study found that 7.9% of would-b digital camera shoppers rate Wi-Fi capabilities -- the ability to share photos or remotely control a camera -- to be desirable.

This is up from 7.4% just three months ago and 6.4%, 5.9%, and 5.5% during the previous four quarters.

A spokesperson for Market Insight Corporation said: "As built-in cameras on mobile devices popularize wireless instant photo sharing, consumer expectations for similar capabilities on their dedicated digital cameras continue to increase."
