Add WiFi support to your camera with Transcend WiFi SD card

It is becoming very common to have WiFi facility in your camera. Samsung offers Android based Wifi camera where your camera is connected to the network and you can instantly share your photos or videos or take backup on dropbox.

But Samsung doesn’t offer great flexibility or any features for professional photographers. Canon, Nikon offer nice DSLR cameras with ability to change lens or manually override the configurations. But problem is that professional cameras do not offer any inbuilt WiFi support.

What if you wish to see the instant preview of picture clicked on bigger screen of iPad or Computer Monitor ? This will save your life in case if your photo shot was blurred because of shake or low light. You can instantly adjust and take another best shot soon.

Transcend Wifi SD Card Class10

You can connect your Canon or Nikon DSLR through WiFi with Transcend WiFi SD. This is storage-cum-WiFi solution bundled in the size of traditional SD card. This comes approximately for Rs. 3000. You can buy this from Flipkart or snapdeal websites.

You need to connect your iPad/iPhone or Android phone to this hotspot network to access files directly from camera. You can download or share these files on social network.

Red Cherries Photo with Tamron Zoom cum Macro Lens

I wanted to try out  Tamron 70-300mm for close objects. There is also Macro Mode available with Tamron 70-300mm lens. Unfortunately you can not be very close to object with this lens for Macro Photography. Macro mode in this lens starts from 180mm focal length. And since I don’t have image stabilizer, to get some good shot I used Tripod and Auto timer to avoid the shake.

Tamron 70-300 Macro Lens

Red Cherries Photo is taken from the distance of about 3 feet in normal day light conditions. Aperture  is F/10, exposure time is 0.6 seconds. I usually prefer manual focus on this lens, that is because if you let the lens focus automatically, it will  waste lot of time and camera battery zooming in and out and finding exact object distance.
