Eye-Fi cards have been around since 2006 as a way to wirelessly transmit your digital camera photos to your computer or mobile device. The catch was that you had to connect to a Wi-Fi network before in order to do so. Not so with the new Eye-Fi Mobi.
The Eye-Fi Mobile X2 does everything the previous Eye-Fi(s) did—upload photos to your computer and online—over a Wi-Fi network. The Mobile X2 has a new trick: It'll zap photos to and from your Android and iOS devices.
We peeped the tech at CES, but Eye-Fi's "Direct Beam" magicalness is mobile—doing what the little Wi-Fi cards should have been all along. The new models skip your network entirely, creating a link between camera and mobile device.
Having an Eye-Fi wireless SD card in your camera is useful, but only if there's a wireless network to connect to. Soon, though, anyone with an Eye-Fi X2 will be able to upload photos through their phone's 3G connection.
Eye-Fi's magical wireless memory cards beam photos from your camera to your computer over Wi-Fi, but soon they'll be able to transfer images from your camera to your mobile device as well—except without requiring a regular Wi-Fi network.
In a hurry to share the full-resolution versions of your photos with several web-connected devices? Eye-Fi has a solution. Turns out that the company behind the wireless memory cards we know and love has a clever new photo-sharing service.
Although technological advances have made uploading photos easier over the years, it's still impossible to have pictures you take with your DSLR transmitted immediately and automatically to the internet. Or is it?
If you have an Eye-Fi SD Card and an iPad, you can ditch Apple's iPad Camera Connection kit right now. Just use the app ShutterSnitch, which sends the photos on your Eye-Fi directly to your iPad (and iPhone).
The next generation Eye-Fi cards, the Connect X2 and the Explore X2, are faster, stronger, and better than the prior generation yet the price hasn't changed. The new cards have double the capacity and hotspots of the old ones.
First, the Eye-Fi added Wi-Fi to any camera with an SD card. Now, the Sagem Orga SIMFi does something similar. It's a SIM card that adds Wi-Fi capabilities to cellphones...Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, that is.
The Eye-Fi is an SD card that adds Wi-Fi uploads to any camera. Their latest flagship, the Pro X2, is pretty similar to old Eye-Fis, but it's faster and even a bit smarter, too.
Kind of nice: If you buy 200GB of Google storage for $50, you'll get a free 4GB Eye-Fi card. Since the card's $60, you could also look at it as "buy an Eye-Fi card, get 200GB of Google storage."
Though it's a budget model, the latest Xacti still has a 10-megapixel CMOS sensor that records 720p video (H.264 encoded MPEG-4). But the best part: it looks to have built-in Eye-Fi for super-easy wireless video/photos transfers to your computer.
Geotagging photos sounds good, but it can become a laborious process to mark the source of every photo in your photo library. Now the Eye-Fi Geo will bring automatic geotagging to every photo you take.
The Gadget: Today Eye-Fi Wi-Fi-enabled SD cards have been upgraded with a 4GB Pro version with new features like support for RAW files, selective uploading and the ability to send files straight to your computer with via an ad-hoc network.
