Tested: Apps that turn your smartphone into a photo assistant | Digital Trends | ICT in the businessworld | Scoop.it
Camera makers are increasingly adding Wi-Fi and building smartphone apps to make their products more connected. We take a look at four such apps.
Vincent François's insight:

Cameras with wireless connectivity are a growing trend, now with everything from  inexpensive compact point-and-shoots to high-end mirrorless interchangeable lens  models touting the feature. At first, on-board Wi-Fi made it possible to  transfer pictures to a computer, upload them directly to the cloud, or send via  e-mail. Now the feature set is even more advanced, with major camera makers  offering apps that connect a camera to smartphones and tablets for quick photo  transfer and even remote control. This functionality isn’t just limited to smart  devices made by the same company; many Android and iOS devices will work and the apps are  downloadable from Google Play and iTunes.
