What is an Eye-Fi?

I used a digital camera to take a photo of the chat room, and then had it automatically transferred to my Flickr account. I could just as easily send it to my Facebook page, or any other account that is supported by the Eye-Fi. The picture was transferred wirelessly over my home network from the camera directly to my desktop… and then right to my Flickr! Using the Eye-Fi SD card, it is a snap to upload photos without having to go through several different steps.

Via the Eye-Fi

The Eye-Fi comes with a handy little reader, since you may not have an SD card reader. The camera itself doesn’t do the transfer, in case you haven’t figured it out. It’s the Eye-Fi SDHC card doing all of the work. It’s automagic!

How often do you forget to download photos from your camera? Actually, a more likely scenario is that you just haven’t made the time to do it. If you have several pictures stored on there, it can take quite awhile for you to download them to your computer, upload them somewhere like Flickr, tag them and finally have them ready for the World to view. Using the Eye-Fi takes almost all of those steps out of the process, saving you time and headaches!

The Eye-Fi SDHC card has up to 4GB of storage, so you don’t have to worry about not having enough room for everything. One of the coolest things is that it provides an automatic backup of your memories by organizing them according to date on your computer for you! Don’t we wish more gadgets or programs would do this for us? Life sure would be easier!

  1. How often do I forget to upload pictures? Never. I’m up to almost 6,000 on my flickr. I looked at this product but was turned off by the premium for convenience. Also I’m shooting RAW now and they force you to buy the Pro version of the card to upload RAW! Thanks, but I”ll pass. Glad you like it though….

  2. Chris, I reviewed one of these as well. I thought is was a novelty product, not a necessity one and the geotagging is weak. What do you think about only being able to upload to ONE photo sharing site rather than to a bunch of them. Maybe because I am primarily into photography I want my images everywhere fast and easy. I would have said pixelpipe would have been my choice for uploading to multiple places but you can only upload ONE file (it says three but each time I do it only the 1st one gets uploaded) to the multiple destinations. Do you know of a tool that I could use to post my photos to multiple photo sharing sites at once that is really user friendly?

  3. Your first paragraph is gonna lose a lot of people. Take a picture of a chat room? A lot of people are going to stop right there. How about just…take a picture of…something people would actually take a picture of? Family, friends, pet…whatever. The product sounds intriguing…IF people get past the convoluted first paragraph.
