Upload Your Pics on the Go: The Best Wi-Fi Cameras and Photo-Sharing Apps
Wi-Fi cameras are the next big thing in the digital era. Wi-Fi cameras enable users to easily upload and share photos basically anywhere they can find a Wi-Fi connection. If you are coming to San Diego for Comic Con International, here’s a list of some of the best Wi-Fi cameras along with the top photo-sharing apps so you can instantly share a picture of that really tacky sexy Princess Leia or unbelievable celebrity sighting.
Canon EOS 6D
You get what you pay for, and what you get with the high-end Canon EOS6D DSLR is a 20.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor, 1080p HD video recording capabilities, ISO settings of up to 25600 and a high-resolution three-inch LCD. The built-in Wi-Fi capabilities in the Canon EOS 6D allow for easy transfer of images between other Wi-Fi enabled Canons and smartphones. Canon also has a free EOS Remote app for smartphones and tablets, which allows users to instantly upload photos for immediate photo storage or sharing on social networking sites.
Samsung Galaxy Camera
Samsung has been a leader in smartphones, so it only makes sense that the company would develop a top-notch Wi-Fi enabled point and shoot camera. This camera’s built-in Wi-Fi and 3G technology make it possible to share photos at the instant they’re taken without the use of an external Internet connection. The Samsung Galaxy camera also allows picture editing apps, like Instagram, to be downloaded.
Nikon Coolpix S800c
The Nikon Coolpix S800c is a top contender for Wi-Fi enabled cameras. The Coolpix camera comes with the Android operating system to allow users to easily download photo apps or send photos to smartphones and tablets or social networking sites. The Nikon Coolpix S800c boasts a 10X optical zoom lens, capabilities to shoot full HD video, a resolution of 16MP and a 3.5 inch OLED touch screen. The camera also has built-in GPS to allow photo location tagging.
Canon PowerShot N
The Canon PowerShot N is Canon’s answer to competition from smartphones like the iPhone. Like other Wi-Fi enabled cameras, the PowerShot N allows for instant uploading of photos but comes with an added feature. Unlike other Wi-Fi cameras, the PowerShot N allows you to add comments when uploading photos to social media sites. The PowerShot N is operated via 2.8 inch LCD touch screen. The camera has a 12.1 megapixel sensor, 8X optical zoom, and takes 1080p HD video.
Whether you use a Wi-Fi enabled camera or a smartphone to take your pics, photo-sharing apps allow you to share your pictures anywhere. Instagram is one of the most popular photo-sharing apps since it allows users to alter images with filters and blur effects while instantly sharing new uploads with friends.
Facebook is another popular photo-sharing app where you can share photos, tag your friends, mark a location and leave comments for a more informative photo sharing experience.
Don’t miss capturing an amazing Comic Con moment or other memory this summer. With the increasing popularity of Wi-Fi enabled phones and photo-sharing apps you can preserve and share an incredible moment the minute it happens.
