We need good FTP features on affordable cameras

I have believed for quite some time that the best camera to have is the one that gets technology out of the way. The sooner I can enjoy my photos, the better. Wouldn’t it be awesome to get home and have all the photos I have taken that day already waiting for me in Lightroom? […]
