Eye-Fi Card Review: Pics from Cam to PC, Without Wires

Eye-Fi Card
Imagine this: You come home from a day of shooting photos, and while you veg out, your images are automatically transferred from your camera to your favorite photo-sharing site. This is what the $99 Eye-Fi Card does: All you need is a Wi-Fi connection, a camera that accepts SD cards, and a PC or Mac -it’s really that simple.

The 2GB Eye-Fi Card looks like your basic SD card on the outside, but Wi-Fi technology is hidden inside. To get started, you have to install the Web based Eye-Fi Manager on your PC and set up an account. First you detect and connect to a nearby wireless network: You can access secure networks if you have the password (this worked well on my tests), but the card can’t connect to public hot spots. Next, you specify where on your hard drive you want to save your images and choose which of nearly 20 online photo sites you’d like to associate with the card. I spent several days shooting images and was able to upload them to a variety of photo sites without a hitch. There is a downside: The Eye-Fi Card is powered by your camera’s battery and can be a drain during long file transfers.

The Eye-Fi is a truly innovative and handy way to streamline the digital photo process—and with the right equipment it works flawlessly.
