Taking a cue from Samsung's Wi-Fi-enabled Smart Cameras is Nikon, which will have an optional Wi-Fi attachment that will allow their upcoming entry-level DSLR, the D3200, to post photos and video directly to social network sites like Facebook or YouTube - one of the first DSLRs to do so. Aside from this, the D3200 will reportedly sport a 24.2-megapixel sensor and will be available in both black and red. The latest leak reveals that it will sell for around US$900 body-only (or about Php36,000 and about Php45,000 including a 18-55mm zoom kit lens. The optional Wi-Fi accessory, known as the Nikon WU-1a, will cost around Php2,000 and will not require a battery as it will derive its power from the camera itself.
