The camera world is clearly moving into “More WEB” direction. Sony will announce the new WiFi NEX cameras tomorrow and Nikon just announced the fully Android powered Nikon S800c. And I am now pretty sure the new Panasonic GH3 will be the first Micro Four Thirds camera with built-in Wifi support! Sources told us what we will be able to do with the GH3:
1) remotely control the GH3 with your iPad or iPhone or any other Android device.
2) It has a Cloud and and Backup service running through the Lumix Club
3) Of course fully integarated with social networks like Facebook.
4) Some other features (like wireless printing).
Just to be clear, the GH3 is not Android powered and you can’t install third party applications on the camera itself. I guess this is something we will see for sure on future cameras…sooner or later!
