Samsung’s ST1000 Wi-Fi Camera Launched
 src=You know, I don’t think most people care whether their camera has Wi-Fi or not. I mean really, it’s not that hard to plug in the camera via USB, or even take out the SD card and stick it in a reader to get pictures from the snapper to your computer. But there’s a subset of people who would find Wi-Fi very useful in a camera — and I’m one of them.

Every single time I’ve tried to Liveblog for Giz, I’m hamstrung by the fact that I’m one man with a laptop, a camera, a wireless connection and talent (OK, I made that last one up), but have to connect them all the old fashioned way. If only I could wirelessly stream the photos directly to the laptop from the camera as soon as its taken.

The Samsung ST1000 has got almost everything in the way of connections — Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth, plus GPS, 720p video recording at 30fps, and is available for an RRP of $749. There’s also a haptic touchscreen and 5x optical zoom.

If you’re a part of that sub market that needs Wi-Fi in its cameras, the ST1000 is available now.
