A new feature that Fuji added to a few of it's cameras this year, including the A900, is an infrared (IR) communication tool. This allows you to transfer data between two Fuji cameras without any cables. All you have to do is point the IR sensors at each other and specify which camera will send and which will receive. For a single picture, the transfer time was around 2 seconds.
