For fast and easy photo sharing on the go, Nikon is pleased to introduce its sixth generation of Wi-Fi enabled cameras, the new Coolpix S610c. From the introduction of its first wireless cameras in 2005 to the current Coolpix S610c digital camera, Nikon has been the worldwide leader in Wi-Fi integration and innovative ways to share memories. With each new digital camera generation, Nikon continues to streamline the photo-sharing process through wireless technology, making it easier than ever to share and send pictures without the confines of wires, cables or computers. New to this generation of Wi-Fi cameras, the Nikon S610c’s wireless service is provided by Wayport, allowing consumers to share their images and videos from over 10,000 locations nationwide.
