There's also Photo Beam for sending images that are currently being viewed to one's smartphone, Mobile Link for transferring select images, and Remote ViewFinder, which is exactly what its name suggests.The camera itself measures in at about 119 x 121 x 35 millimeters, and weighs a hefty 608 grams without the battery. There's support for SDHC cards up to 32GB and SDXC up to 64GB.
