Two weeks ago Sony announced their upcoming NEX F5 camera, and rumors about what capabilities it would possess immediately began to swirl. Among those rumored features was the possibility of built-in WiFi capability, as many cameras have started to include. Rapid photo sharing has been made simple in recent years by picture messaging, eventually evolving into more organized and openly accessible platforms for photo sharing such as Facebook and Instagram. And while the mega pixel capacities of mobile phones have skyrocketed recently, real photo quality can still only be found on higher end cameras without a means of instantly sharing.
That’s changing now, and one has to wonder if cameras are going to soon start carrying applications compatible with the photo sharing avenues often found on mobile phones. Regardless, the WiFi capabilities look to be a game-changer. Photographers at sporting events will now be able to upload action shots on the spot, travelers will be able to share high-resolution images of their adventures for friends and family and photography buffs will be able to upload much more stylistic photos on the spot.
These new WiFi cameras will also likely increase battery consumption while shooting and sharing photos in a whole new way. An extra battery to carry in your camera bag could do wonders to make sure the live updates of pictures telling any story don’t get put on hold due to something like a dead battery.
