Panasonic now developing wireless cameras.
Today’s fast paced world seems to have no time dock, upload then email all our vacation photos to share with family & friends. Wouldn’t it be easier if there was a technology that wouldn’t need a PC to do all this for us. Panasonic has announced development of a wireless camera with the ability to upload directly to Goggles Picasa Web Albums. Thanks to a deal with T-Mobile, the camera will include twelve months’ free use of the network’s Hot Spot service which is available in selected Starbucks, Borders, Hyatt hotels and airports.
After taking digital photos with the new LUMIX, users will be able to upload their photos directly to Picasa Web Albums through the T-Mobile HotSpot service. The LUMIX comes with complimentary access to T-Mobile HotSpot service for 12 months. * After uploading, they can receive an email with a URL link to their photos, which they can then share with family and friends. In addition, users can confirm photos have been successfully loaded to Picasa Web Albums and can delete photos directly from the digital camera, eliminating the concern that photos have or have not been uploaded. Detailed specifications have yet to be announced.
