Wifi Camera Introduced by Nikon

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

The first wifi camera has been introduced today by Nikon. Nikon announced the new wireless LAN support for it’s CoolPix line of cameras in a press release today, exclaiming “Providing versatility beyond any previous compact camera, the new COOLPIX P1 and COOLPIX P2 can boast all the advantages of built-in Wi-Fi LAN support.”

Now why, you may be asking yourself, would someone want wifi on their camera? It’s not like they are going to use it to log in and check their email from Starbucks (is it?)


Explains Nikon, “With the advantages of built-in Wi-Fi LAN support (IEEE802.11b/g), the new COOLPIX P1 and COOLPIX P2 realize new picture-taking potential by doing away with the need for wires and cables. In addition to USB connectivity that makes it easy to hook the cameras up to a computer or other peripherals, wireless transfer allows the photographer to send pictures from a memory card or his or her camera’s internal memory (32MB for the COOLPIX P1; 16MB for the COOLPIX P2) direct to a selected computer on command.”

Ok, that does sound pretty cool.

The new wifi cameras support both Windows and Mac computers.
