DPReview forum moderataor Horshack (Adam on Testcams.com) has created a desktop application for wirelessly transferring photos from a wi-fi enabled Nikon camera to the computer (apparently something that Nikon doesn’t offer?).
The project is called [airnef]. It’s a Python application that he has licensed GPL3 and is cross platform across Linux, OSX, and Windows.
I’ve been doing research for a new camera body, as my Canon Rebel XT is showing its wear pretty badly, and I wonder, is Wi-Fi in a camera something people really want? Is it popular? I see it an think “gaping security hole.”
I think it’s more of the convenience of having it. It’s something that I don’t personally notice because my workflows never centered around it - although having an eyefi card was really, really convenient the times I did bother to setup and use it.
It let me sync with an iPad, and then during a shoot I could show the model the last images for instant feedback (it beats the pants off of looking on a rear LCD). Of course I guess I could shoot tethered…
