OK, so many of you heard my tirade for wi-fi-enabled digital cameras. I did some searching after our meeting and found a David Pogue article as far back as Sept 2005 hammering on about the “obvious” pairing of wi-fi sharing and digital cameras. Duh! What’s taking so long, I wonder (as did Pogue, then).
WELL. You will be happy to know that a few cameras do exist with wifi – Kodak, for one. I have a Kodak EasyShare camera that I absolutely LOVE though I had no idea they offered cameras with wifi! (OK, so it was a gift, so I didn’t have much choice in the matter, but still!) I noticed they only offer 4 and 6 MP varieties, so I wonder if that has something to do with the price-point with Wi-Fi, etc. (keeping low enough to still generate demand, perhaps)
I can’t wait to see what comes out of this category. And if you find anything else cool in the category of wi-fi-enabled digital cameras, please let me know!
Like this – completely utilitarian – wi-fi camera UMBRELLA. Ah, the Japanese consumer electronics industry is awesome.
