Shared Features

  1. Built-in Wi-Fi® that makes connecting with others more fun with simple connection to smart devices (S6800 /S5300)

    The built-in Wi-Fi® function can be used to transfer photos* to a smart device over a wireless connection as soon as they are taken. Photos can be easily shared with family and friends, or uploaded to blogs or social networking sites (SNS). In addition, the display on a smartphone, tablet, or other smart device can be used to frame images and control shooting remotely. This is very convenient when taking group photos and the like in which the user is included. With remote shooting, the self-timer, zoom, and shooting information are also displayed on the smart device screen.

    • *The Wireless Mobile Utility app must first be installed on the smart device (the app can be downloaded free of charge from the smart device's app store), and Wi-Fi connection settings must be applied before image transfer is possible.

Effective stabilization of the scene displayed in the monitor as well makes framing movies easier for sharp and clear recording.
