Is there Bluetooth for the iSeries?  Specifically, we are looking to connect to a camera and automatically upload selected pictures.

Is this at all possible?

The answer is "sort of".  Specifically, the iSeries support only the "Headset Profile" in traditional Bluetooth.  Newer iSeries devices (iPhone 4S and later for example) also support "Bluetooth Low Energy" which is a different technology that is only now starting to appear in devices.

There exists a workaround if you want your product to communicate with the rest of the traditional Bluetooth stack on the iPhone, but it involves building in a special "encryption" chip that makes your product incompatible with the rest of the world.  This was apparently by design.

No Not directly,
We do the same with Insurance damage pictures, and use a PC where we connect an iSeries IFS share to map to a drive.
The next .bat file will do the job:
Net use P: /delete /y
Net use P: \\My400\damages\2014\pictures
Copy E:\DCIM\*.JPG P:\

Open in new window

(Where E:\ is our camera connected via BT)

Good luck,
Murph
