With the support of inbuilt WiFi to a digital camera, it is more than just a camera and less of a smart phone. It should be noted here that the media quality which these cameras offer is far better than that of a smartphone. These WiFi cameras use 802.11b and 802.11g wireless computer networking technology to update the camera's software or upload your photos to web (including cloud backup in newer models) or to transfer them to a computer. This feature makes sharing, downloading and printing photos easy, thereby eliminating the usage of cables and card readers. The best wifi cameras of 2016 might use the latest version - 802.11n - which is the fastest WiFi protocol in use today.

While some of the cameras need Wifi to control them remotely, using the display of your mobile device as a viewfinder, some other cameras use Wifi to tag the location of the photos using the smartphone's GPS receiver.

Currently, this Wifi feature is considered just as an add-on option, so there's a probability of not getting a desirable camera model with a Wifi option. In that case, Eye-Fi wireless SD cards will be of help, which work just like regular SD memory cards for storage and have a built-in Wi-Fi radio for wireless data transfer.

Large for a compact camera.

great 'carry-everywhere' camera

Like just about every model in the FujiFilm CSC line-up, the FujiFilm X-T10 is a great camera.
