Digital Photo Junkie: Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Card
An individual picture used to be one thousand words. Now, thanks to digital photography, our personal photo collections are worth (at least to us) more like the value of a small nation. With the Eye-Fi wireless memory card, digital photo junkies can upload pictures from their digital camera to a PC or Mac and to popular photo sharing, printing, blogging or social networking websites wirelessly and immediately with ease. How cool is that?
The thing about digital photography is that you can quickly end up with hundreds of photos. With the Eye-Fi Card, all you need to do is pop the memory card into the digital camera and start taking pictures. The card then stores pictures like a regular SD card but when you turn on your camera and computer, Eye-Fi uploads the photos automatically upon connecting to the home network through a built in wireless connection - no cables, no waiting, no digital hassles.
The Eye-Fi Card stores a whopping 2GB worth of photos, includes a USB memory card reader to make set up a breeze and handles full-resolution jpeg images. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of Eye-Fi is that it supports free and unlimited uploads to photo sharing, social networking and printing websites, including KODAK Gallery, Shutterfly, Wal-Mart, Snapfish, Photobucket, Facebook, Webshots, Picasa Web Albums, SmugMug, Flickr, Fotki, TypePad, VOX, dotPhoto, Phanfare, Sharpcast and Gallery. The Eye-Fi service works behind the scenes to handle the photos, connecting to the sites, managing logins and passwords and even re-sizing pictures if necessary – and all within a secure and private environment.
