If your camera doesn't have WiFi built in, there's a good chance you own an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet. If you do and your camera accepts SD memory cards, Transcend's WiFi SD can add WiFi capabilities, letting you connect your camera to your phone or tablet, to view and transfer photos from the camera to your device, and—if you have Internet access—upload them to online services for backup. Estimated street price: $59 (32GB).
Ideal for making prints away from home, the Canon PIXMA iP100 is a compact and portable letter-size printer that can produce 4x6 borderless prints in about 50 seconds. With the handy optional LK-62 Battery Kit, you can make prints anywhere. Another option: The BU-30 Bluetooth interface lets you print wirelessly from your laptop and also other Bluetooth devices. List price: $249 (iP100); $99 (LK-62 Battery Kit); $49 (BU-30 Bluetooth Adapter).
Here's another way to print wirelessly—and from just about anywhere. Epson's iPrint app lets you send photos and other documents from your iOS, Android tablet or smartphone to any email-enabled Epson printer. The app is free, but you'll need a compatible Epson printer; several are available, starting at under $100.
