With an innovation we all saw coming, digital camera makers are finally hooking up their shutter-speed powerhouses to the internet. Since sales for these professional cameras have decreased in recent years thanks to the modern smartphone’s camera, a big move was needed in a bad way. After all, these days pictures are all about how many people see them on social media, so a beautiful, crisp shot is useless sitting on the hard chip of a typical camera.
Even for those more unfamiliar with social media, being able to beam your high quality pictures to the internet is common practice. Most camera producers such as Nikon, Cannon, and Samsung allow photos to be sent right to an iPhone or Android for instant sharing, and some even can send right to cloud storage. Gone soon are the days of slow-upload SD cards.
No internet connection available? No problem. Most of these cameras are set up to upload your photos as soon as they detect a wireless connection. This way you can arrive home and know the photos are being processed automatically. Some technology adds more problems than it solves, but some (Wi-Fi cameras) just makes our lives easier.
