A company called Eye-Fi has released a rather unusual SD memory card aimed at digital cameras. The Eye-Fi Card has 2GB of capacity and looks just like its other SD brethren, all but for one detail: it has Wi-Fi capability. According to Eye-Fi, this functionality allows users to transfer photos wirelessly from any camera to their home PCs via a wireless network. Better yet, Eye-Fi's software lets users automatically upload photos from their cameras to 17 popular photo sharing sites including Flickr, Facebook, Picasa, Photobucket, KODAK Gallery, Shutterfly, Wal-Mart, Snapfish, Webshots, SmugMug, Fotki, TypePad, VOX, dotPhoto, Phanfare, Sharpcast, and Gallery.
The folks at Gizmodo got a chance to review the Eye-Fi Card, and they say it works "flawlessly." To set it up, Gizmodo says users simply need to take a few minutes to configure the card through their PC using a bundled USB card reader. From then on, everything works as advertised, and camera battery life supposedly shouldn't suffer thanks to SD power standards. Gizmodo's review suggests the Eye-Fi Card's only real downsides are its price tag—a hefty $99.99—and its lack of support for Wi-Fi hot spots.
