Last week at PhotoPlus 2012, founder Dave Etchells and Managing Editor Roger Slavens caught up with Chuck Westfall of Canon USA to see the Canon 6D's built-in WiFi feature in action.

Not only is the Canon 6D a reasonably affordable full-frame digital SLR, it also includes a built-in WiFi radio. That not only allows connection to local access points and computers, it also lets you remote control the camera with Android and iOS devices, and download images straight into these devices for display and distribution.

Canon's Chuck Westfall connects the Canon 6D to a smartphone for both shooting and viewing images.
