With smartphones taking over so much of the market from compact cameras, a number of manufacturers are trying to tap into both markets by marrying the two. Samsung’s SH100 can be controlled from a Galaxy Android smartphone, and Polaroid has created an Android powered camera/smartphone, and now a new app from Fujilm lets you send your photos directly to your smartphone or tablet. Fujifilm Photo Receiver is a free app for both Android and iOS, and with a simple tap of a button, your photos are wirelessly beamed from your camera to your phone.

To use the app, you simply press a sync button on both devices simultaneously (assuming they’re on the same WiFi network), and then up to 30 images are transferred — and scaled down to three-megapixels for ease of movement.

Unfortunately, the system is incredibly limited right now, and only works with the FinePix Z1000EXR. Alternatively, you could always pick up an Eye-Fi X2 card, and use the official Eye-Fi app with just about any camera on the planet.
