It would seem so much easier to move pics from camera to computer. Just seems logical to me. :meh:
Because then the wouldn't be able to sell the wireless transmitters they make. All business.
Whats logical to us is not logical to the corporation making the product.
Because of a thing called Market Research.
They will eventually. The new Nikon D4 has majorly awesome tethering abilities. Just give it a few years.
I just want the ability to connect to my network and take photos off the card without pulling it out. It will be a standard in a few years.
There's an accessory that does it now, eventually the technology will advance so it's small enough and cheap enough to put inside the cam without making a fuss... just like light meters.
Who has time to wait all for wifi. Just shoving the card in the 'puter is slow enough, and that 50,000 times faster than an airwave connection
kids these days...when I was young, you had to rewind your roll of film and drop it off at the lab.
You had to actually WANT your pictures.
I think this is something most people overlook when they think of wireless shooting, or even tethered with a cable... transmission speeds would be MUCH slower than the card write speed. You wouldn't be doing any continuous shooting over WiFi... you'd be doing a lot of waiting.
All of my cameras came with this little thing that prevents me having to take the card out. It's called a "USB Cable". I plug it in the side of the camera, the software starts up automatically, I click one button, and unplug the camera.
You can also shoot "tethered" to a computer using the right software (depends on what camera and OS you have). That way the images can be instantly reviewed on a larger screen to check focus, or lighting, or show to clients as you shoot, etc.
