It all seems a bit absurd. Camera manufacturers have seen their market absolutely crushed by devices that offer instant editing and instant connectivity to the internet, yet they have almost universally been painfully slow on the uptake. It's as though they are incapable of comprehending that the features that have caused an exodus from their devices might actually be features they should consider improving upon.I think the interface between a non-phone camera and the Internet will occur, but it will be a mirrorless camera manufacturer (or a creative software developer), not Canon or Nikon, that does it. I keep thinking about Kelby blabbing on about how a DSLR like the 7D2 cannot do this. That's BS. It can be done.
Seems more a question of usability.
I'm by no means anywhere near a pro, but my pride won't let me release ANYTHING that hasn't been looked at up-close on a large monitor. Further, if I put up more than one shot of an event, it really needs to "tell a story", the pictures need to give each other context. Self-consciousness won't allow me to 'just put what you have up there' as I've been begged, because their perception of my photographic skills are really a combination of not just what I take and how I take it, but my post-processing skills and visualization of the event in my mind.
If "the bride" desperately needs facebook photos ASAP, then what's to stop the photog putting up the same crappy pictures (somewhat less crappy) with their iPhone? That's not what he's there for. If that's what she wants, maybe "Uncle Bob" with the DSLR should have shot the wedding.
I just don't see the specific need in-camera. Like the people that don't want a touch screen or flip screen etc. to drive the price up, why do we need that?
Bit of a tech-rant here now, at least in the US, "Getting to the internet" isn't exactly as ubiquitous as it reportedly is:
Cellular companies are capping data/playing games with streaming and charge a lot, coverage isn't always great.
WiFi really depends on someone having a GOOD connection and then offering it to you. If it's free & open, it's usually slammed by tons of people connecting. Uploading any decent content is complicated.
Home/Business (non-peering) connections are starting to preference their traffic. If you download too much, you suddenly see yourself slowing down . . . sometimes you're told so overtly.
That aside, Cameras are hardware; most of us shoot RAW who are serious about what we take (professional or not) and don't even use the in-camera JPEG rendering. Why require a software solution in-camera?
MiFi Card or just a card Reader and a powerful laptop with your choice of softare, if you have an internet connection, you can do this.
In closing (maybe I should have led with this and skipped the rest), if "Pro"s are being 'crushed' by my iPhone 6+ (which could crush a squirrel if I dropped it!), then "Pro"s are not needed. Someone who wants a 'selfie wedding' shouldn't get a Photographer, and we should be grateful for that.
