The idea of tranferring digital images from your camera wirelessly isn't new, but past solutions haven't always worked so well. At CES this year, though, new wireless cameras and accessories are showing some real promise.

Consumer Reports' associate electronics editor Terry Sullivan came across a new Olympus PEN camera, the E-PL2, that comes with an optional accessory called PENpal: It attaches to the top of the camera and allows wireless transfer via Bluetooth to your smart phone. He also found a new model from Samsung that sends photos directly from the camera, and memory card solutions as well.

Take a look at our video to see some of the new wireless camera solutions, and check back for more digital imaging news from the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show.
