If You have bluetooth everything is wireless between the phone and device witch is awesome. Also you don't need to be close to a wifi hot spot for the devices to Communicate nor do you need to break out a cord to connect them. You can transfer everything wirelessly in the middle of nowhere to your phones app with the cam still in place then up load it where ever you want with your service provider. Dont get me wrong having it wifi enabled is nice. Just be great if it was Bluetooth also.

That's just my view tho. Them folks at Sony are much smarter than I am so I'm not going to contradict what they do.

Bluetooth does not equal internet. Bluetooth is a technology that allows devices in close proximity to communicate and exchange information. It has nothing to do with the internet. You could use Bluetooth at the bottom of a coal mine if you wanted to do so. Good luck doing that with wifi.

Both Bluetooth and wifi are very useful technologies. For a camera, I would prefer wifi. With wifi, you could easily transfer to your computer or directly upload from the camera. With Bluetooth, all you could do was transfer the file to another Bluetooth enabled device in close proximity. Most computers aren't Bluetooth enabled.

1080p video creates BIG files. 1080p video at 120fps or whatever that camera is capable of would create MASSIVE files. You're gonna run out of space real quick on your phone. You're probably going to experience some significant degradation in quality too.

All of those things are pretty much the same for both Bluetooth and WiFi.

You definitely cannot directly upload to the internet via Bluetooth. Bluetooth is strictly for communication with other enabled devices in proximity. There are similarities between Bluetooth and wifi, but that's the big difference. Via wifi, you can access the internet and directly upload online where as with Bluetooth you are strictly limited to transferring to another nearby enabled device.

Yup Sony wins lol. I wasnt thinking transfer of full videos or anything but more like still pics, As well as be able to view the video saved on the cam on your phones screen to check out what you just recorded. wouldnt Bluetooth also be great for the app to play wih settings on the cam? Because then everything is wireless and you don't need to connect the two via cord (leaving it where it is) or be in range of wifi hot spot.

Same for WiFi and Bluetooth - one of the connected devices needs to have an internet connection. If there is an internet connection (normal ISP, internet on a cellphone, or whatever else) it can be used both via Bluetooth or WiFi. Conversely, there are plenty of WiFi networks without internet.

I give up. I have to explain Bluetooth on a daily basis for a living. I'm not gonna go round in circles on here for free.

Guys, get with the program and stop posting this non-sense.
Contour (with Bluetooth) and GoPro (with the WiFi PacPac) already have implementations that do almost exactly that: Preview from the camera, change settings, etc. Some limitations on file transfer - and you would not want to transfer a massive video file via Bluetooth anyway in most instances.

You do not need a hotspot to connect two devices via WiFi.

Hmm this looks awesome. I only ever bother to record in 720p and so 120fps would be great. I have just bought the GoPro HD Hero2 this year though so doubt i can warrant this as well lol.......super slow mo is the dogs for snowboarding though :/
