    I was doing some thinking and wonder if they make something like this. Something that would attach the the shoe that would wirelessly transmit photos to you computer. Maybe have the a reciever on the laptop.

    Anyone know if there's a product like this out there? If so, anyone have anything like this and what the transmitting distance is?

    I haven't heard of anything, but I assume technology is taking us into the realm of Bluetooth communication between our devices and computers. A camera that could connect wirelessly to your laptop and provide a high rez image immediately after it was taken would be awesome for studio settings. You could invent it and make millions.

    Well that's a splendid deal at $799... Hopefully Nikon doesn't follow suit with the pricing, geez.

    Hmmm... If it's so easy my mom can use it, I doubt it is any good.

    A much handier (and cheaper) version...not sure of the camera compatabilities......

    Ha, ha! That reminds me of the time I was telling a friend they ought to come out with a camera that adjusts the flash output to the distance the lens is focused on. A week later, Nikon comes out with their D lens system.
