Lumera adds WiFi and smartens your old DSLR

After getting used to instantly share a photo we took with our smartphone, using a DSLR camera requiring you to connect a USB cable to your computer or dealing with memory cards seems something akin to the old photo developing day where we had to wait for our photos to become ready. But Lumera wants to change all that and give a new, smarter life, to your old DSLR.

The Lumera is a small device that you can attach to your DSLR, and that will act as a secondary brain adding lots of smarts and features you'd might find in the latest mirrorless cameras. Not only you'll be able to instantly receive your photos via WiFi, you'll also be able to control your camera remotely using a smartphone app (even scheduled timelapses), and also access a live-view from your camera.

The project is on Kickstarter and I don't think it will take long to rack up the intended amount - considering the $170 CAD seems a reasonable amount for a device that can give a new life to an old DSLR.

If you're a photographer that needs to get your photos "out to the world" as fast as you can (and I'm not referring to paparazzi :) then I'm sure you'll find this Lumera a real life-saver - and that will probably allow you to postpone spending a few thousand dollars in a new DSLR (that might not even give you all the features this Lumera adds to your existing DSLR.)
