Nikon presents world’s first Wi-Fi cameras

In addition to USB connectivity that makes it easy to hook the cameras up to a computer or other peripherals, wireless transfer allows the photographer to send pictures from a memory card or his or her camera’s internal memory direct to a selected computer on command.

Wireless shooting automatically transfers each picture to a selected computer as soon as it is shot. Pictures can then be viewed with Nikon’s powerful yet fun-to-use and easy PictureProject software. And wireless printing delivers the convenience of cable-free direct printing to PictBridge-compatible printers.

All these functions are easy to implement, too. Just set them up with the Wizard utility to enjoy easy wireless capabilities that add outstanding flexibility to the digital photography experience.

In the US, Coolpix P1 and P2 will be available in September 2005 with a MSRP of $549.95 and $399.95, respectively. The Wireless Print Adaptor (PD-10) will be available in October 2005 with an MSRP of $49.95, informs PhysOrg.

According to Pocket-Lint, COOLPIX P1 and COOLPIX P2 will offer 8.0 and 5.1 effective megapixels respectively and feature a 3.5x zoom capability and powerful 36-126mm Zoom-Nikkor lens (35mm equivalent).

Both cameras allow the user to correct images in-camera featuring D-Lighting, The Portrait (Face AF) Mode, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, 16 Scene Modes and seven movie modes.

Those not wishing to use the wireless connectivity mode will be able to save images down to the cameras 32MB of internal memory for the COOLPIX P1 and the 16MB of internal memory for the COOLPIX P2.
