The more I think about it, the fact that Canon didn't put wifi into the T5i(700D) or for that matter even the new SL1 is kinda perplexing/frustrating. Both these can be considered Canon's flagship entry level DSLRs for people migrating from point & shoots to more serious photography. We live in a world of iPhones & instant uploads. I thought the inclusion of wifi in last years "affordable" FF was a sign of things to come for Canon's future entry level DSLRs....but alas no.
I think Canon missed a real opportunity here. For one thing, wifi would have made the T5i an ACTUAL upgrade lol and not just in name only!....but it'd also be a REALLY useful & popular feature for consumers. Not to mention the fact that it'd help differentiate it from competitors like Nikon's offerings at a time when many are thinking Nikon is doing all the innovating lately.
I agree with missed opportunity. WiFi was something I definitely expected in the new version. Together with touchscreen they make stellar features for mass market. Canon already have application for iOS and Android to communicate with 6D. It could be just extended for T5i and make this huge differentiation to other entry level DSLRs.
Yup. They sure did. It's just odd that the last DSLR canon released, the 6D and the new power shots got wifi....but they leave it out of both the new entry level DSLRs the t5i and the SL1? Makes no sense if ya ask me. But hey...it's not my company. I'm just a consumer.
