Everything you own now needs to be connected–even your tough cameras. That’s only part of what Fujifilm is announcing today. The new XP200 is a waterproof and shockproof camera that sports WiFi because you’re bound to be diving down 50 feet below and then suddenly say to yourself, “You know, I want to upload a picture now.” all the while you’re trying to swim away from a shark.
The company is also announcing their S8400W camera, which is a superzoom with 44x optical zoom and WiFi built in as well. Now that one just seems a bit more cool. Come on, you know that you’re totally going to be taking photos of an awesome scene across the river and then upload it directly to Face-Twit-Gram for all your friends to be jealous of. Right?
