Hmmm .... I wonder how Google Glass would work out? It just might be the ultimate photographer's accessory.
Google Glass doesn't really run full blown Android apps (screen res too low)...it's originally only was able to display HTML pages on your own web server, but now you can run some simpler apps to control it.

Yes, but tilt and swivel feature is used mainly for shot composition, so low resolution shouldn't really matter in this case.

This might come in handy: The Smartphone DSLR Mount Is Absolutely Ridiculous | Fstoppers

Just realised that when taking family photos the flucard and phone combo will be a great tool.

Crap..... Live view stream... Remote manual control... If they could throw in the flash EV compensation control on it, it WILL be VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY hard for me to resist! Urgh~!

Live view stream...
My understanding from the Goggle translation (my German sucks) is that the live view on the remote screen is a still capture, not a video stream. Did anyone else read it the same?

It needs to be Live View.

I'll know end of the month but shall be mighty pi$$ed off if it isn't Live View. Seems pointless otherwise.

Can you use the FLU card in one slot and record the images it captures to the second slot? A product like this I think it makes sense that people are buying it for connectivity not for space so it doesn't need to be a mass storage device.

I just heard today from someone inside Pentax USA that they are expecting them to be available in the next 7 to 14 days.
Confirmed.

I just ordered the eyefi card.

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/172-pentax-k-3/251520-eye-fi-16gb-deal-worth.html

If the Pentax card is the same price, well I will have time to regret later.

It's Live View, continuous video stream. There's maybe a half-second delay. You can choose between 360x240 or 720x480 resolutions.
