Send your digipics wirelessly on the fly
Also at Photokina was Concord’s Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) adapter that alls you to send images wirelessly via email or FTP file transfer from wireless hotspots. The adapter plugs into pretty much any digital camera via a USB connection. Concord is calling the technology WIT or Wireless Image Transfer. The prototype on display was a pocket-sized 2-inch by 2-inch module and users will be able to transfer images up to 4 megapixels in size 1500 times faster than GSM/GPRS and 20 times faster than 3G. The company is talking about integrating this technology into digital cameras as well as producing standalone devices. Expect the standalone module to cost around £200 when it’s released.
