The wonders of WiFi: make in-camera wireless connectivity work for you

Only a few years ago, wireless functionality in digital cameras was seen as somewhat of a gimmick – albeit one which added cost to higher-end compacts and bridge models. The ability to directly access the files stored on a card or internal drive in a camera does make practical sense, however, especially for photographers on the move. 

Today the technology has found its way into professional DSLR and mirrorless cameras and can be used for control in both directions. The mobile apps available for download onto smartphones and tablets can be employed to move images between the camera and the mobile device, instead of using a USB cable to transfer files, or to control camera functions remotely from the device, in place of a physical shutter release cable or wireless remote trigger.
