They should be wireless connected of course to share the 24 shots.
Friends can invite each other through Facebook. After doing so, they can immediately start shooting images they want. But here’s the catch, unlike digital cameras, D-Series doesn’t show the captured images if the 24-shot roll isn’t all used up!
