A Communicating Camera

An amazing push toward a camera which can do what a Droid can do: upload pictures on the go. Polaroid (who gave us instant pictures for years) seems to have done it again; once againm they are putting our pictures at our fingertips.

Canon, how long will it take you to figure out how to get that into a 7D? I would buy one right now if you could. This is the future of photography; how long will it take Canon to figure this out?

My sister-in-law, who taught photojournalism, has a Nikon dslr and a pike of lenses. However, almost all her pictures I’ve ever seen were taken on her I-Phone. I’ve seen the pictures because they were accessible, and they were accessible because they were on a soicial media website, facebook. And they were on facebook because they instantly upload from her phone when she tells them to. The process for my 7D pictures to get to facebook requires FIVE major steps. For her to upload is one step. For her to in-phone edit then upload is two steps, and done in a minute or two.

Sure now, and my major works of art will receive greater editing than just a minute or two, but plenty of pictures down-rezzed to Facebook size look great with just a curves function, and maybe a bit of added sharpness.

Who must our images remain hostage to a brutal process in order for our fans, friends, and family to view them? Canon, you will outsell EVERYONE if you can get this to the market!
