In a sample of more than 59,000 shoppers visiting MyProductAdvisor.com, 7.9% rated Wi-Fi as a very desirable camera feature in the first quarter of 2012, compared to 7.4%, 6.4%, 5.9%, and 5.5% during the previous four quarters.
“Shoppers who expressed a strong preference for the Fujifilm brand showed the largest increase in Wi-Fi interest, with 17.1% indicating it to be very desirable in the first quarter of 2012—a 25% jump from the previous quarter and fully double the percentage who rated it very desirable during the same quarter of the previous year,” reported Market Insight.
Those shoppers with a preference for the Samsung brand also showed high interest in Wi-Fi, with 17.5% rating it very desirable in the first quarter of 2012, compared to 12.8% during the same quarter in 2011.
However, according to the findings, shoppers who preferred other digital camera brands showed lower Wi-Fi desirability ratings and more modest increases over the time period.
