What's a good WIFI enabled compact?

Looking for a compact WIFI enabled camera(WR is good also) need to have live view on my Ipad/smartphone,and adjust zoom & shutter/aperture settings as well.
Thinking of Nikon 1 as very cheap now,but maybe others are better?
plan to use it for stealth birding--put in tree near feeder so I can get close ups & good detail of small birds there,WR is a plus--need about 6 meter wifi range,also RAW would be nice...any good suggestions here?
price max $4-500

The best WIFI enabled compact that I know of is the Sony RX100 II but is out of your price range at this time.

That looks good,it seems it can go 60fps so slow mo is possible,also looked into Nikon 1 S1 which has wifi remote,but NO video or motion capture..so not good..unless it can be hacked?

No, IIRC.

What about a Samsung NX?
