Android has taken an initiative to form a bridge between smartphones and digital cameras. As the high-end DSLRs are now being incorporated with Wi-Fi, and with help of this app you can share photos, save them and much more, just by connecting it with the device. Smart Camera app allows you to use your device as a view finder, with things like Samsung NX30 digital camera. You can use any phone that supports Android to download this app from Playstore and connect it to the digital camera.
Initiating the connection between your device and camera is very simple. Now-a-days, digital cameras come with a built-in Wi-Fi option. Once you select the Wi-Fi option from your camera, you can tap the back of your NFC enabled smartphone to the NFC area of the camera.
The app looks like this:
On the top left is the settings mode whereas the bottom left icon is used to shift between the primary and secondary cameras of your device. On the right side is the ‘Mode’ icon from where you can choose different available modes for your shot.
There are several cool connectivity features that you can use.
