Dear Dave

Is it possible to transfer the photo images captured from Digital Camera Binocular to Smartphone device using WI-FI or Bluetooth Technology ?.

Both Smartphone and Digital Binocular Camera are Wi-Fi or Bluetooth enabled devices.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hi again Prashant!

I'll respond with a slightly different take on the answer I just sent! Yes, it would be possible... if the binoculars are equipped to send and the smartphone is equipped to receive. I don't know if that has been done yet... but as I said earlier, wireless would definitely be the way to go.

Now, if one can't find a digital binocular manufacturer who has done it, that doesn't necessarily mean it's impossible. It's more likely, in fact, that no manufacturer has become convinced that a sufficient market exists to support the R&D costs involved.

That situation would change once some clever semiconductor company decides that there's a market for inexpensive wireless transmitter/receiver chip sets that can be slipped into any digital devices. Once that happens, you'll see all kinds of devices and gizmos sending and receiving all sorts of data over short distances!

Sincerely,

Dave

Expertise

My specialty is highly atmospheric digital-infrared photography, and I'd love to answer questions about digital-IR equipment and procedures. I can also help people understand classic "old-photog" techniques (like "Sunny 16 Exposure" and "Hyperfocal Focusing")... which are still useful today. I can answer questions about processing, improving, manipulating, and printing digital photos with programs like Photoshop. I'm an inveterate tinkerer, and may be able to answer questions about making one's own photo equipment (such as DIY special-effect filters, close-up adapters, and pin-hole cameras); about doing super-closeup macro photography (film or digital); and about using older lenses on cameras made by different manufacturers (such as Nikon lenses on Canon bodies and Pentax lenses on Olympus bodies. I can answer general purchasing questions, such as "Can any of the digital SLRs use my old Minolta film lenses?" But as others have noted, nobody can identify the "best" camera for another person. That calls for extensive web research plus hands-on time in a good camera store. (But I can point to great web resources for doing this research!)

Experience

Over the past 40 years, I've used a huge variety of film cameras (SLR, rangefinder, point-and-shoot, high-end, fantastique-plastique, fully manual, highly automated, 35mm, 110, medium format, Polaroid, folding, even homemade pinhole). I've used digital cameras since the late 1990s (began when I was writing user manuals for Polaroidís digital cameras). I've also won juried photo competitions in the Boston area, and have exhibited and sold original prints. (Amazingly, my best-selling print was taken with a lowly 0.8-megapixel camera, and very carefully processed to print at 12x18 inches!) Iíve taught local adult-ed classes about digital cameras, Photoshop image processing, and better photography through self-understanding. Iíve contributed to Popular Photographyís tips and tricks column, and am currently writing a book about taking better photos through self-understanding.

Publications
Popular Photography (tips and tricks column), plus dozens of magazines and blog sites that have carried my bylined articles about computers, networking, information security, and eLearning.

Education/Credentials
Masters in Science Communications, Boston University, 1980. Bachelors in Mathematics, Denison University, 1970.

Awards and Honors
I've won several juried photo competitions in the Boston area, and have exhibited and sold original prints... especially digital-infrared landscapes, architectural abstracts, and cityscapes. I've also won multiple international awards in the technical-writing field... including a business press equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize. And I've even written for Sesame Street!
