That is just a damn cool idea..
I can understand transmitting it to a computer; it would be great when I'm shooting weddings to not only have the images on the mem card, but also backed up on a computer. But I've yet to see a digital camera that outputs an image file that doesn't need at least some post-processing, so I can't imagine sending it straight to the printer.
What I see the biggest benefit is the "unlimited" memory card.
Straight to the printer is more a gimic than anything in my opinion since liek you say most all pics need some sort of post processing.
World's first? Canon has had it for more than a year...
Cool feature though
as these are compact cameras my guess is a large majority of users are just "point and shooters" who don't use photoshop and such like. granted, there are keen amateurs that use compact digitals with photoshop but on the whole i think Nikon's timing is just about right and have a good market for it.
Being a student, one thought that comes to mind are "young people" in nightclubs or just on nights out that take a picture of their friends and can have it printed straight after to take home and share rather than one person holding the images.
