Wi-Fi cameras have always been my unicorn of photography, with good reason because a Wi-Fi camera is what you would call an enabling device for someone who is ALREADY a workaholic. And by workaholic I mean I have an upstairs and downstairs workstation. I mean I wake up to a tablet on my nightstand and have another tablet within arm’s reach while we are in the kitchen juicing. A workaholic in the sense that, I looked at our trip to Iowa as a vacation to get work done KID FREE; no toddler chores; no whiny toddler; no needy husband. Just work in the middle of Nowhere, Iowa.
Let’s just talk about the elephant in the room for a minute… selfies TOTALLY count as working when your mani/pedi is as sparkly as mine was!
Note: All pictures are from our trip to show you quality pictures really are possible when you are away from your in home studio, with just a Wi-Fi camera.
Mallery’s must haves for traveling
- Power strip.
- Chargers for everything.
- Power inverter.
- Comfortable pants to sit indian style in.
What would you say if I told you I found the holy grail for those of us needing to work while we traveled? I’m talking Twitter parties while driving through corn fields and pictures that don’t need me to pull out a cord to upload them because I have a Wi-Fi camera.
Brace yourself because I absolutely did find what I am describing! The theme of our trip quickly became ‘let me solve your problem with one of my gadgets’ because I constantly heard things like this:
“Look this up for me.”
“Figure out where we are going.”
“What do you mean you are leaving the room? I need your hotspot!”
Gadgets make me the almighty tech goddess… until they die. When they die I go into hiding until things are charged back up because losing my tech goddess status isn’t allowed.
Confession: I refuse to own a traditional point and shoot camera because I have traveled to the dark side of photography and I’m not going back, you can’t make me! *Throws self on the ground like a 2 year old with an extra pouty face*
Check out the video to see why this Wi-Fi camera is pretty epic
- Samsung Galaxy 2- $180
- Samsung NX1100- $500-600
- Adobe Lightroom 4- $150
Except you can pick up all three for $599 at Sam’s Club! Well slap me silly & call me Shirley, that is a fabulous deal!
Okay, you can quit trying to lick the raindrops off of the vault now! If this picture doesn’t sell you on the photo quality this Wi-Fi camera is possible of producing, I don’t know what else you are looking for. The Samsung NX1100 isn’t your mama’s cell phone. This camera is going to take your selfies to the next level and save you time with the Wi-Fi capabilities. If you have a pimple, we will know. If you have fuzz on your teeth, we will hold our breath because we all know what morning breath smells like. It is just that good.
I would be remiss if I didn’t reiterate a key point from my video I haven’t really mentioned here yet: the tablet can serve as a remote control! A remote control, guys! I said the Samsung Galaxy 2 is a REMOTE CONTROL! How cool is that? It is cool enough that I got in trouble because I was sitting on the couch all day fidgeting with my new gadget. Whoopsie!
I <3 gadgets so much!
