The Eye-Fi is an SD card which can hold up to 2GB worth of photos and has built in Wi-Fi capabilities. With these capabilities, your camera is connected to your Wi-Fi network and pictures can be sent automatically to your computer or to your online photo sharing site like Flickr, SmugMug, and Picasa Albums among many others. Eye-Fi is $99 and can be found where SD cards are sold.
Some things to think about:
- Unedited photos – If you’re like me, you like to edit your pictures before allowing the rest of the world, or grandma, to see them. If you have the pictures automatically go to your online photo sharing site, they will appear without edits.
- Public Wi-Fi networks – Because the Eye-Fi has to be paired with a network ahead of time, don’t think that you will be taking pictures at a park and having the public, city Wi-Fi network beam them up to your online photo sharing site. There are ways of taking your Eye-Fi capabilities on the road with you, but it involves a portable router.
This is really a breakthrough product that will change the way you get pictures from your camera to your computer and online photo site. Go forth, take pictures, and share.Cameras gadgets SD Card Wi Fi
