How They Sent Photos Across the Ocean Back in 1926

acrossatlantic2

These days, it’s easy to take for granted what the magic of the Internet, wireless technology and fiber optic cables has made possible, but there was a time when sending a photograph a long distance in a short time wasn’t quite that easy.

For instance, in 1926, someone on an oceanliner called the S.S. President Roosevelt snapped the above photo of the S.S. Antinoe during a rescue attempt. When that photo was sent almost instantly from London to New York City, it was such a big deal that the April 1926 issue of Science and Invention printed a huge infographic to show its readers how this miracle was achieved.

Eye-Fi has offered the ability to wirelessly transmits photos from a camera to another device for quite a while now, but there was a downside: you were required to connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot to do so (with the exception of the Eye-Fi X2). This presented a challenge to photographers shooting on location where a Wi-Fi hotspot may not have been readily available.

bttrigger2

Here’s another option for DSLR-toting photogs who want to control their gear wirelessly from a distance without spending a fortune. It doesn’t have the range of the CamRanger or the ability to send over a live view like, say, the built-in wireless on the Canon 6D; however, it’s less than one sixth the price of the first, and you won’t have to upgrade your camera to get it.

It’s the Satechi Bluetooth Smart Trigger, and it comes in three versions that are compatible with a range of Canon and Nikon DSLRs (plus a couple of Pentax options) for only $45.
