Flucard - Overview
Newly developed for PENTAX digital SLR cameras, this SDHC memory card offers wireless LAN connection to a compatible smartphone. Via a designated Web browser, the user can inspect a live-view image, release the camera's shutter, shift the AF sensor point, and check images recorded on the card using the smartphone screen.
Feature 1: Flexible live-view shooting
Effortless low- and high-angle shooting
Since you can capture extremely low- and high-angle images from a comfortable shooting position, you can exploit new, eye-catching angles to dramatize your images.
Natural expressions of children and animals
Set the camera on a tripod, then release the shutter from a distance. You can capture natural, relaxed expressions of your sensitive subjects without them even noticing.
Easy image confirmation on a larger screen
On a larger tablet computer screen, you can check the entire image in greater detail, even at the corners. This is an outstanding benefit for your shooting, not only in scenic photography, but also in still-life photography of flowers and other small subjects.
Feature 2: An array of handy functions
Live-view display on a smartphone screen, with remote shutter-release function
You can release the camera’s shutter from a distance, while watching a live-view image on your smartphone or tablet computer.
Effortless fingertip control of focus and exposure
The camera’s AF system is activated when you touch the point on the screen where you want to optimize the focus. You can even adjust the exposure and ISO settings with fingertip control.
Easy check of captured images on a smartphone screen
Thumbnail display Full-image display
You can recall thumbnails of images recorded on the memory card on your smartphone screen. When you find the desired image, you can transfer its data wirelessly and store it on your smartphone.*
