Wireless Gadgets for Photographers

The new wifi SD card for your digital camera is an awesome little gadget. You can upload your pictures immediately from your camera to any number of sites you have an account at. Photos shouldn’t be trapped in your camera. Set them free.

The Eye-Fi Card is a wireless memory card. It automatically uploads pictures from your digital camera to your PC or Mac and to your favorite photo sharing, printing, blogging or social networking site. No cables, no waiting, no hassles. The Eye-Fi Card comes with everything needed to make it simple to set up and connect to your home Wi-Fi network. After that, pop the card into your digital camera and start capturing those memories. It stores pictures like a regular SD card no matter where you are, and uploads your photos automatically as soon as you return to your home network. All you have to do is turn the camera on. It supports sharing 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.

This is very cool, and very easy. The only thing I’d like to know as far as a “wish list” for this, is if it will ever be able to shoot video directly over to the web. Now *that* would be awesome.

Eye-Fi Wireless SD Card Review

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

The new Eye-Fi is a wireless memory card. It automatically uploads pictures from your digital camera to your PC or Mac and to your favorite photo sharing, printing, blogging or social networking site.No cables, no waiting, no hassles. At its core, this is a nice product and has a lot of promise. I would say it needs some improvement, and here are my recommendations:

  • Doesn’t support Safari on OS X.
  • Can’t log into management console without the utility running.
  • Manager link isn’t found on the regular eye.fi site.
  • Can’t upload to multiple services.
  • Can’t choose what to upload – it uploads every photo.
  • Can’t add or remove default tags.
  • Can’t rename photos before they’re passed along.
  • Account information isn’t retained across browser sessions.
  • Can’t upload without access to a vetted access point.
  • Must change camera’s “power saving” settings, since the camera has to stay on in order to transfer.

The packaging is nice, the card works. It’s simple to use. Now if only these recommendations can be addressed, I’d be a very happy person!
