Many cameras now have Wi-Fi capabilities and here at ePHOTOzine, we've reviewed quite a rather larger number of them. Cameras with Wi-Fi built in are not only useful for instantly sharing photos but they can also be remotely controlled by smart devices which is a handy feature and it also saves you having to purchase a remote release.

Also, gone are the days when it was just compact cameras that mainly had this feature as now DSLRs as well as CSC cameras are Wi-Fi enabled which makes choosing what camera's right for you trickier than ever but to help you out, we've got a rundown of the best Wi-Fi cameras currently available on the market today that we've reviewed to date.  

 

Best Travel Zoom With Wi-Fi: Panasonic Lumix TZ80

Panasonic Lumix TZ80 Black (9)
 

This one actually sits at the top of our 10 best pocket zoom / travel cameras list and along with wi-fi, it features an 18-megapixel sensor, as well as a 30x optical zoom lens and electronic viewfinder. For those who like to record video the TZ80 captures 4k and as the sensor is larger than camcorder sensors, the camera is said to deliver better video quality. The lens gives you a great zoom range, and the viewing and user experience is excellent thanks to a clear 3inch screen. As for picture quality, images have a good level of detail and produce excellent colour.

Best Ultra Zoom Bridge with Wi-Fi: Panasonic Lumix FZ1000

Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 Hands On (7)
 

Bridge style cameras offer a DSLR look, manual controls and huge zoom ranges which means you can capture a wide variety of focal lengths without having to mess around with lenses. The Bridge camera currently sitting at the top of our best ultra zoom bridge camera top ten is the Wi-Fi enabled Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. We actually reviewed this camera back in 2014 but as of yet, we've not reviewed another Bridge camera that beats it. The Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 offers an array of impressive video features and it is capable of taking excellent photos. With a relatively large 1inch 20 megapixel sensor, a bright Leica 16x optical zoom lens with f/2.8-4.0 aperture, and full manual controls, the camera is capable of producing excellent images.

Best FF Premium CSC Mirrorless with Wi-Fi: Sony Alpha A7R Mark II

Sony Alpha A7R II (13)
 

The Sony Alpha A7R Mark II is the World's first full-frame camera with a 42.4 megapixel backlit CMOS sensor. The camera also offers internal 4K video recording, plus a 399-point hybrid AF system, and an updated design compared to the 36 megapixel A7R. The A7R-II is a culmination of all of the best features from Sony rolled into one fantastic camera. In fact, the camera having Wi-Fi is quite a way down the 'awesome features' list on this particular CSC camera.

Best Compact Premium CSC Mirrorless camera with Wi-Fi: Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II

Olympus OM E E M5 MKII  (26)
 

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II not only looks good, it performs well too. Under the retro design you'll find a compelling camera, with a range of features to suit all aspects of photography, from the video enthusiast, who will benefit from the 5-axis image stabilisation and improved video options, or someone looking for high resolution (stills) photography, the 40 megapixel mode will be very appealing. Overall, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II provides excellent image quality in a well-built and stylish compact system camera. If you're not such a fan, take a look at our 13 best premium CSC 2016 feature where you'll find more Wi-Fi enabled CSC cameras to pick from.

Best Entry Level Mirrorless Camera with Wi-Fi: Panasonic Lumix GX80 

Panasonic Lumix GX80 Silver (6)
 

The Lumix GX80 not only records 4K video but also offers 4K photo, which has a number of different options for capturing 8-megapixel photos at 30fps, making sure you don't miss the all-important moment. The GX80 delivers images with very good colour and is capable of producing images with excellent detail, although it does benefit from the use of high-quality lenses to get the best out of the camera. For those that want some of the best features available in a mirrorless compact system camera, including Wi-Fi, the Panasonic Lumix GX80 certainly ticks a lot of boxes.

When going on your travels you're going to want to share the odd snap with friends and family back home and a camera with Wi-Fi built in makes it even easier to do this.

It's waterproof down to 15 metres, shockproof from 2.1 metres and features an ultra wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens.

Best APS-C DSLR with Wi-Fi & Excellent Value For Money: Pentax K-S2

Pentax K S2 (2)
 

With a weather-resistant body, ergonomic design, built-in Wi-Fi and a fold out screen on the pros list, the Pentax K-S2 has a lot going for it. Picture quality is good and video quality is pleasingly smooth. The K-S2 fits the hands like a glove and performs superbly in every respect. So much so, it was awarded an Editor's Choice award on ePHOTOzine. For more APS-C DSLR options, take a look at our top 10 that was updated this year.

Best APS-C DSLR with Wi-Fi, If Money Is No Object: Nikon D500

Nikon D500 (1)
 

If you're looking for the best ISO performance available in an APS-C camera, without having to go over to the larger full-frame format, then the Nikon D500 delivers some of the best results we've seen from this size sensor. The camera also offers excellent auto white balance performance, which improves image quality thanks to delivering excellent colour and saturation. As this article shows, built-in Wi-Fi with Bluetooth and NFC is something that has quickly become a must-have feature, and the implementation of this on the Nikon D500 is certainly impressive, with low-power Bluetooth image transfer reducing the battery draining effect.

Best FF DSLR with Wi-Fi: Canon EOS 6D

Canon Eos 6d Dslr Large (11)
 

For anyone looking to upgrade from an earlier Canon camera, the Canon EOS 6D delivers some useful features such as Wi-Fi, GPS, built in HDR shooting, and reasonably quick continuous shooting at 4.5fps. The camera feels extremely well built, and pleasantly compact and light-weight for a full-frame Digital SLR, making it an enjoyable experience to use.

Best Camera with Wi-Fi for around £100: Canon Powershot SX610 HS

Canon Powershot Sx610 Hs
 

The Canon Powershot SX610 HS produces images with excellent colour and reliable exposure. Focus is quick and reliable, and the camera's built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity is good. The battery life is a little short, but can be extended to a much more impressive 400 shots when the ECO mode is enabled. With a stylish design and good handling, as the price drops, we would expect this camera to become even more appealing.
