Wireless cameras arrive in UK
Looks like its digital camera goes wireless month in the UK. On sale from now are the £349 Nikon Coolpix P1 and £279 P2 – the company’s first Wi-Fi enabled snappers. The theory being they can send images from the camera or its memory card wirelessly to a PC. The models have a fairly similar design, the key differences being the P1 (an exclusive to Jessops in the UK) can take eight mega pixel images while the P2 takes five. Both feature a 3.5x zoom capability and powerful 36-126mm Zoom-Nikkor lens (35mm equivalent) and sport 16 handy Scene Modes.
Meanwhile Kodak has launched its Easyshare-One compact camera. It has two very cool features – a touch screen that flips out mobile phone style and integrated Wi-Fi. It not only means you can transfer images wirelessly from the camera but also send images via email from your home wireless network or form a hot spot. The four mega pixel camera is going for a very pricey £400.
