Instagram, Twitter, and even Facebook, have become social networks in which we share many photos. Sometimes captured with the mobile, other times captured with the camera and processed. The latter is something much more laborious. However, there is a possibility today that must be taken into account, and there are more and more cameras that have WiFi connectivity.
Cameras with WiFi
It is being the trend of the year in the world of cameras, even in the basic range. The cheapest DSLR cameras from each company are being updated to integrate WiFi connectivity. Why? Because they know that more and more users are using mobile phones to publish photos instead of cameras. This means that fewer cameras are sold than two, three or four years ago, because mobile phones have better cameras every time. Are they at the level of a DSLR or a mirrorless camera? Probably not, but for users it is enough, especially when it comes to being able to post a photo on social networks, and we want that immediacy that mobile phones offer us.
However, there is a different option than this, and that is to buy a camera with WiFi. As we have already said, there are more and more cameras on the market that have WiFi connectivity. One of the latest examples is the Canon 1300D, one of the cheapest of the company, a basic DSLR, and whose main novelty is to add WiFi connectivity. Although it is not the only camera with this connectivity.
How do they work? Simple. You download an official app compatible with each of the cameras that have this connectivity. Each company has its own app. Normally the camera connects to the mobile, either by connecting to the same WiFi network, or by generating its own WiFi network. And then we have several possibilities. From transferring photos from the camera to the mobile, to managing all the camera settings from the mobile itself when shooting.
This takes photography to another level. We can have the high quality that cameras of a higher level offer us, together with the immediacy of mobile phones to share these photographs. There is still some editing involved, but it is possible to achieve it thanks to the many high-quality apps that are already available for Android to edit photos. Not as powerful as the ones for computers, but with many options, and with the advantage that we work on a touch screen.
