Your Photos from Camera to Computer – Effortlessly
I’m not much of a gadget person, but I really love this new trick – the Eye-Fi wireless photo memory card. All I need to do to transfer photos from my camera to my computer is… well, nothing! See why I love this so much and how it saves me oodles of time. – Samantha
I set the camera down, leave it on, and the photo and video files upload automatically over our wireless network to my computer. The camera turns itself off when the transfer is complete.
Even better, I can chose from more than 25 different online photo sharing sites like Facebook and my files automatically fly over and land there too. I chose Flickr, which serves as a backup of my photo library.
The basic Eye-Fi card starts at $49.99 and has 4GB of memory – that’s plenty for me. Upgrades include geotagging (add $20) and double the memory (add $50).
Setup was simple and took just a few minutes. Take your old memory card out, replace it with the Eye-Fi, and you’re ready to go. Start here to see if your camera is compatible with the Eye-Fi memory card.
Eye-Fi even sends me an email when a successful file transfer is complete.
Even if you think this isn’t much of a time saver, you just might change your mind. Really, how long does it take to find the camera, connect it to the cable, and start the upload?
That’s what I thought too. But the unforeseen benefit is now that my photos are transferred to my computer right away, it’s streamlined my photo management process.
Instead of 100 photos to review and edit at a time, I get a handful here and there. It’s much less daunting to take a look at fewer photos, and quickly delete the bad shots.
This helps keep my photo library a bit more manageable – and if you’re a shutterbug like me, you could use all the help you can get in this area.
Eye-Fi wireless media transfer streamlines my photo management process, and for me this is the real time saver, in addition to the extra convenience, and well – it’s just cool!
