Hmm. Would you want it to, given the camera's built-in wi-fi? I guess there's a possibility that you could switch off the built-in wifi and use the Flu-card instead... but I don't see any benefit in doing so.

But doesn't the K1's built-in wifi support connectivity to a desktop PC?

Nope smart devices only (android IOS) via their App.

I might be able to Jerry rig it as I have the Flu card but unless it natively supports some common file protocol (SMB,CiFS,NFS etc etc ) it ain't gonna happen.

Wow, that's an unfortunate omission

Perhaps, but it doesn't need to be. A simple HTML GUI would have allowed any browser-capable device to operate the camera. After all, that's how the flucard works.

But you can also use USB to tether, at least.

Also, see here for a community-developed program that emulates Image Sync on a PC:

No, since native wi-fi support is built-in. You'd still be able to use it to transfer files, though, since that's a generic feature.

Does this mean we'll be able to move the focusing points around via Wi-Fi?
