    But if you had the right in camera wi-fi it could connect to your smart phone & give you GPS.

    In fact the additional card slot of the 5D mk3 is one of the reasons i will buy it - so i can stick in a wifi card.

    I do realise that i probably shoot a lot differently than a lot of people, but for me the ability to shoot and transfer the images in real time to laptop or iPad for review would be "brilliant"
    Absolutely with you 100% on that one for the very reason of being able to review on my iPad.

    When using flash it would give a lot bigger image to review the lighting, it would give a much clearer image with with to show the model why is/isn't working, and would make it much easier to know when the "shot" is achieved - many pics are ruined by tiny details that you just can't see on the camera back
    Not only that, but with wireless technology built in to Nikon Speedlights I could use CLS without the need for line of sight positioning.

    Oddly GPS is one camera "feature" I can not understand at all. What could it possibly be used for??
    Having travelled extensively around Mongolia where there are no landmarks of any sort, I really wish that I had had GPS to tell me just where we went, how far we travelled and where I took the photos I did. It would also be cool to see just where in the 'middle' of the Gobi desert we ran out of petrol.

    Re: Poll - Would you want Wi-Fi in your camera?

    Needless to say I voted "Yes, it would be brilliant!"

    I only noticed today that along with the D3200, Nikon announced the WU-1a wireless adaptor which allows it to connect to Android & (in the future) iOS devices. Not only that, but it seems reasonably priced too. Fantastic.

    What isn't fantastic is that it will only work with the D3200.

    So, Nikon will let you connect the top and bottom models of their range to mobile devices but no others. Also, the WT-5 is stupidly expensive.

    If Nikon had had the guts and gumption to release the D800 & D4 for built wireless transmitters & released the SB-910 with the same, they would have created a real USP in the market.

    But they didn't

    I would find it very handy.

    And why not? For me a decent compact covers 99% of my digital needs, and I can shoot 5x4 and 120 for pleasure. It's the ideal balance for me.

    I think we're quite spoilt enough as it is with modern technology ?
    My 7yr old PC is slow but i'm quite happy using a CF card reader when i get to it, like they used to say in the 90's -"go and make a cup of tea while Windows boots up" well i apply that now to Photoshop importing RAW files :-D
    It's great sitting down with that cup of tea doing a little or much editing.

    Re: Poll - Would you want Wi-Fi in your camera?

    I had the first compact camera to offer Wi-Fi (Nikon P1) back in 2006 and used didn't use the Wi-Fi beyond testing it when I first bought it.

    I don't see why 6 years later I'd be any more inclined to use Wi-Fi to be honest.

    Re: Poll - Would you want Wi-Fi in your camera?

    Nikon's transfer to android device looks good to me, rather than full wifi and the potential security risks.

    However what I'd really like, rather than wifi in my camera, is a camera that could turn the rain off .........

    Beejaybee's suggestion above seems like extremely unlikely. First you'd have to have psychotically inclined work mates, then they'd have to be tech savvy to do the hack, have access to such images, and you would have had to bring your camera to work...

    I think getting run over by the proverbial bus is several times more likely.

    Indeed, especially when you consider the devices that are already wi-fi enabled and happily used by post people fretting about camera security risks carry a much higher security risk in terms of personal data storage i.e. laptops & smart phones.

    I already have wifi in my Nikon D60 using an Eye Fi wifi SDHC card. I find it very usefull that as soon as I get within range of my computer uploads happen automagically.
