Canon cameras go wireless
Well these Wi-Fi enabled cameras are certainly catching on. After Kodak and Nikon now Canon has announced a Wi-Fi model. Due in the UK early next year the Digital IXUS Wireless, great name fellas, is a 5.3 mega pixel compact snapper with a 2inch LCD and a 3x optical zoom. Just like the Nikon Coolpix P2 you can transfer images from the camera to your home PC and even set it up so that shots ping to your network the second they have been taken. It also works with PictBridge compatible printers too. And, in a really cool feature, you can even remote control your camera from the PC. It doesn't however have the Kodak EasyShare One’s option of instantly emailing images via a hot spot (like the Nikon, the Canon requires dedicated software to get wireless),but then again it is set to come in at around £400.
