eyeFi Releases Their 2GB Wi-Fi SD Card for $100

eyeFi has released their 2GB Wi-Fi SD Card. This card will allow you to transfer your photos from your digital camera directly via wi-fi to your computer and/or 17 of the major photo sharing sites.

I don’t think that this offering is really for me as I take 300-400 high res RAW images per a typical day and wi-fi speeds certainly would not be as fast as my card reader, but, for a lot of less intense users this might be a good way to consider going.

The card will sell for $100. You can buy it here at Amazon.com.

I haven’t tried the card out yet but hopefully can and will provide more details on this myself later.

“Initial partners are dotPhoto, Facebook, Flickr, Fotki, Gallery, Kodak Gallery, Phanfare, Photobucket, Picasa Web Albums, Sharpcast, Shutterfly, SmugMug, Snapfish, TypePad, VOX, Wal-Mart, and Webshots.”

    Ah, Zooomr noticably absent. Did you decline, or were you not invited?

    Ryan, we met with the eyeFi folks and plan to have Zooomr included in the future. The sticking point is Zooomr’s API and an API key, neither of which are in place yet but which should be in place hopefully in the very near future.

    Also only works for JPGs, so pro photogs that might want to use it as an untethered studio hook up are out of luck. And no CF version.

    Overall this seems like it can have some fun applications. the folks at Photojojo used it to set up a dynamic slideshow with a wireless photo booth. That was really interesting.

    I am looking to be able to wirelessly upload my automatically geotagged images. Thomas do you know of any GPS enabled cameras besides the Ricoh one.

    Also have you tried the GiSTEQ PhotoTrackr? I got one to review and have been using it for months. While Zooomr is not listed as a supported site if I upload any photos to Zooomr after adding the GPS info through the GiSTEQ PhotoTrackr software the are automatically geotagged. It is a nice thing to have the photos geotagged automatically. So if they can be wirelessly uploaded and automatically geotagged I would be thrilled.

    I linked to your post at http://flat-water.blogspot.com/2007/11/wireless-photo-uploads.html
