Most cameras of a similar type and age to the EOS 1000D do not support wi-Fi. The EOS 1000D is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

If this camera display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the 1 J1[pl_1657791_price] (3"), or the D90[pl_1836503_price] (3") both from Nikon or the Pentax K-S1[plb_2449390_price] (3") which also has a higher rating.
