I was a long time member here but either forgot my name and password or my long time of inactivity got me purged. But I have a question and need some input from the best group I know.

I conduct a lot of surveillance and the guys I work with know I am better than average at photography. I've also been out of the technological loop for a while. Well, they handed me the camera gear. (Canon 10d plus lenses). The issue I am having is sharing the photos with the others on the team as quickly as possible. Ideally I'd like to use a bluetooth connection to download select photos to my phone which can then be immediately dispersed. I want to buy a new body and keep the lenses.

1. Am I correct there are no Canon DSLR's with blue tooth?
2. If 1 is correct, it seems like my best method is going to be a wifi enabled camera. Use my laptop as a hotspot and figure it out from there

What say you all?

no blue tooth...there are a couple cameras with wifi the 70D, and 6D...i know with those you can connect to a smart phone or tablet, i'm really not sure about connecting to a laptop though...if you're trying to connect to a laptop maybe one of those eye-fi cards would be good as well...those you can set up so that it directly transfers the images to your laptop right after you take them

of course with both of these options you need to be relatively close to the camera

edit: i should've looked at my 70D, there's a laptop option for connecting it with wifi

you can do that with either a wifi camera, or an eye fi card...i find the wifi option on my 70D to be a lot better than the eye fi card...the eye fi card will either transfer everything, or you need to set an image to protect on the camera to just transfer one image. with the 70D you can view everything, and then click to see them closer, and decide which you want to download to your phone, or just email them out from the app

this is all with the EOS remote app btw...their new app camera connect has never worked for me...

The T6i/s models also have WiFi. I use it on my 70D all the time to transfer pics to iPhone or iPad and share/post on location.
