With the rise of better cameras on a Smartphone, it has become hard for digital camera manufacturers to keep up with the trends. The mobile devices offer a more significant number of technological features compared to digital cameras. One of the outstanding features that the Smartphone have dominated is the Wi-Fi connectivity. Marginally very few cameras have adapted to this technology which comes in handy with the security of your premises. Why have manufacturers not invested so much time in installing this in cameras? A few years ago, Wi-Fi use was not much value to users. There weren’t as many public hotspots, cloud storage systems or social networks as it is today. However, times have changed in recent times. Cloud storage is widely available for use, and it’s free. With social sites like Facebook – people can now upload pictures with ease, video sharing websites like YouTube has made it possible to upload videos and make MONEY! Why is Wi-Fi Enabled Cameras a Good Idea? Just how awesome is it to take a picture with your smartphone, upload the photo in cloud storage or a social network? If you have Wi-Fi connectivity, you can send the images to your computer at home and the pictures will be waiting in your account. This makes life much more comfortable and eliminates the need for USB cables thus making a mobile device genuinely mobile. Why should digital cameras be deprived of such freedom? Although wireless charging for cameras is yet to hit the market, Wi-Fi IP cameras can still make in the first steps. Wi-Fi cameras can take much better pictures than the phone itself. With the integration of Wi-Fi systems in cameras, people would think twice before going for the overhyped iPhones. Digital cameras with Wi-Fi integration could bring numerous advantages. We hope for better and many models with this feature from the manufacturers. Here is a view of what WiFi cameras could bring:- Easy sharing on social sites Quick upload of footages to the cloud Safe storage of pictures Automatic upload of images to your smartphone and computer Wireless control Why WiFi Cameras is not mainstream Having Wi-Fi IP cameras is a good idea but why have they not yet hit the market? Why are manufacturers finding it hard to tap into the market? Here are some main issues posed by adding Wi-Fi capabilities for cameras:- The system is quite hard to set up. There are no dedicated mobile and computer applications that support uploading of pictures to the cloud storage system. The device must be compatible with programs and apps that span across all platforms. The internet is susceptible to problems and high-level risks of data piracy. Price! WiFi IP cameras have slightly higher rates than other regular cameras. However, with the newest smartphones to hit the market, the integrated cameras are getting better in features, functionality, and usability. Let’s hope the manufacturers will develop a stand-alone camera compatible on all platforms.
