Eye-Fi Wirelessly Sends Your Photos to Your Computer or Photo Website

Do you wish your digital camera could magically send your photos to your computer or photo sharing website? Now it can!

Eye-Fi memory cards hold your digital camera pictures like any other memory card, but they can wirelessly and automatically upload them to your computer or even a photo sharing website! That's right, no cables, no card readers and no hands are needed.

How It Works

Eye-Fi brand memory cards use advanced Wi-Fi technology to connect to a nearby wireless internet connection and automatically start transferring photos to your desired location. Simply walk into your home, turn on your camera and walk's that easy. Pictures are sent to an Eye-Fi server via the internet and then delivered to a designated folder on your computer or to one of over 20 different photo sharing, printing, blogging or social networking websites. View Eye-Fi partnered photo destination websites. Your computer doesn’t even need to be turned on since the photos are held online until you power on your computer.

As if that's not cool enough, some Eye-Fi cards can connect to over 10,000 public Wi-Fi hotspots in the USA through their Hotspot Access service or utilize Geotagging to see a map of where you took the picture. You first set up the card using the included USB card reader to choose the destination and connect it to your home wireless network. After that, the Eye-Fi card will automatically transmit photos when your camera is powered on and idle when in range of your Wi-Fi network.

The Hotspot Access service connects to over 10,000 Wayport public Wi-Fi locations or "hotspots" across the USA for uploading photos. Such locations include most McDonald's restaurants, major hotels, airports and more. You can move photos off your camera while you eat a burger, read the paper or use your Blackberry.

Geotagging adds geographic location tags to your photos (based on nearby Wi-Fi networks), so your memories are easier to search, categorize or simply remember where you were.
