Concord Camera has announced a nifty little device that turns the USB port on your digital camera into a WiFi adapter. The WIT (Wireless Image Transfer) transmits photos over 802.11b and will be demonstrated at Photokina next week in Cologne, Germany.

It is about 1500 times faster than traditional GSM (GPRS) networks today, and will be 20 times faster than mobile 3G networks. WIT™ enables users to transmit a high quality 4 Megapixel image at 1/10th of a second, and video clips at up to 54MB per second. WIT™ transmits images by e-mail or FTP with the help of a WI-FI access point or Hotspot.

The adapter is not yet shipping and the company offers no date, only saying “Concord is presently evaluating WIT™ technology as both a standalone device, as well as an integrated module in select digital cameras.”
If Concord sounds familiar, you’re probably remembering their US$200 Bluetooth digital camera, the Concord Go Wireless, which was announced last year.
