Wireless Storage For Your Digital Camera


Eye-Fi Card, Wireless 2 GB SD Memory CardHave you ever lost the cable that connects your digital camera to your PC? I have and it sure is annoying. So when I saw this little gem, I thought I’d share it with my readers. Eye-Fi has created a Wireless SD Memory Card that can connect to your Windows or Mac PC through your wireless home network. Pretty cool!

So, how does this work? The product comes with software called Eye-Fi Manager which you run on your Windows or Mac PC. You pre-configure a folder where your photos will be stored and when you connect through your camera it automatically uploads your photos to the assigned folder. You can also configure it to upload your photos to one of many photo sharing, processing and social networking sites. The Eye-Fi Manager software takes care of securely logging into the site(s) of your choosing and uploading your photos. It can even automatically resize your photos if the site requires it.
