Connectivity & integration - what do you want?
Sep 6, 2012

The latest crop of cameras are getting more connected / integrated / open.

There seems to be a reluctance in some quarters to embrace this new technology.
The 'I just want my camera to be a camera' view.

It's clear not all of these innovations will be appropriate in a camera but I suspect some of them will become very useful.

Five years ago we all had Nokia phones which we're great, until you decent smartphones came along with maps, internet, touch screen, email etc. etc. I'm sure there were a few Luddites around then who just wanted 'a phone to be a phone'.

For me the GPS function gives me an easy way to find images. I use LR4 and it was a revelation when I imported my iPhone pics - they all appeared on a Google map, that's a big step forward and I'd be very surprised if I bought a new camera without this feature.

Which of these 'new features' do you think will prove essential or useless?
