Getting camera photos online has always been roundabout: download to a computer, then upload online. Blame it on how slow camera manufacturers have been to catch on to the Internet connectivity game. More and more smart point-and-shoot cameras, though, are emerging in the market with built-in wifi technology, such as the Canon Elph 320 HS, the Samsung WB150F, and more recently, the Android-powered Nikon S800C. Nikon even offers the Wu-1a wifi adaptor for its D3200 DSLR camera as well. Is this the end of the obligatory camera phone shot just for sharing’s sake? Perhaps not. Still, it’s about time for wifi cams.
