So what is Remote capture feature?

What does it do?

Should I think on getting a camera with it?

Remote capture usually refers to the ability to capture directly to the hard disk of a computer. The camera is (usually) tethered to the computer by either a USB or Firewire cable.

This feature is usually available in the higher end dSLR's. Maybe in some intermediate models too, but generally not available in the non-dSLR cameras.

So unless you have an absolute need to be tethered to a computer while shooting, it is a feature I would not worry about.

Point and Shoots have them now, came with my $300 Canon A710IS. Otherwise, I'd agree and don't see what use it would be unless you run a passport photo or photo ID business :-).

Comes in handy if you are taking pictures of the same things over and over again like Santa Claus at the local shopping mall.
