In an age where everyone is used to shooting images on their mobile phone and instantly sending they to social media sites or friends, we've often wondered why the same functionality isn't available in many cameras.
Well it looks like Samsung have had the same thought -- because they have just rolled out a trio of Wi-Fi-toting cameras, the NX1000, NX20 and NX210.
All three models feature a 20.3 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and are compatible with Samsung’s range of nine lenses, and while the NX1000 is compact, the NX210 boasts a metallic finish and 3.0” AMOLED display. The NX20 however, it larger and targeted at the enthusiast amateur or semi-professional photographer.
The WI-Fi offering give users the ability to share pictures at the touch of a button, uploading to social networks including Facebook and Picasa, or emailing them to friends and family – all straight from the camera.
Myoung Sup Han, of Samsung Electronics, commented: "The three new additions to the NX range mark an evolution in Samsung’s SMART CAMERA offering, demonstrating our understanding that digital imaging is about sharing the best moments with family and friends, and not only about taking great pictures.
"With the inclusion of in-built Wi-Fi connectivity, our customers can now share pictures and videos straight from their NX camera.
"More importantly, however, the NX camera’s wireless connectivity does not mean sacrificing fantastic image quality – you can now have the best of both at your fingertips."
