    New Nikons to have 802.11 wireless built in to access internet hot-spots?

    • Maybe new cellphones with Nikkor lens.

  • forget WiFi. When do we get built-in geotagging? my tiny iPhone has that.

  • corporation OR cooperation

  • Kevin

    Isn’t nikon already part of that mitsubishi corporation thing ?

  • Jason

    I suppose you meant cooperation rather?

  • Nikon cell phones. No doubt about it.

    • With built-in projector, tripod socket, CLS capability, eye-wear EVF, and adaptor to use DX & FX Nikkors,

    three take aways:
    1) more Coolpix

    2) we can make calls with our cooplix

    3) Nikon can sell more of the same 12MP sensors

    Conclusion – Nikon is suffering some identity crisis. They cannot fuckin’ figure it out that they are an imaging company first and not coolshit.

    Or a system of immediate upload for paparazzis who wants to be first with some pictures?

    The GPS link is the obvious thing, but you could have outward communication from the DSLR to the smartphone as well. Being able to use an iPhone/Droid (or iPad) as an untethered external monitor for live view would be pretty cool, especially for video applications. And wireless backup/sync would be handy in the field.

    And the real obvious application. Phone as wireless remote + touchscreen setting of camera settings.
