eye fi

this is cool. it’s the eye fi which is an sd card that has wifi capability built into it. you tell the eye fi where you want it to send your photos (i.e your computer, flickr, snapfish, dacebook, etc.) it will then sit in a waiting state until you walk by an open wifi connection. then it sends you photos automatically. how cool is that?

i think it would be great for semi-realtime photos of a church function, event, etc. pam wishes she had it for her “operation smile project. all she would have to do is turn the camera on near a “hot spot” and BINGO the boys and i could see photos. no need for a computer, miniusb cable to hook up your camera to the computer, or any software for uploading the photos. i just keep thinking of what i could have done with this at youth camps and mission trips. could you imagine telling the youth ministry parents that they can go to your flickr account and see photos from what their child is doing? so are just so many possibilities for this thing.

i just think it’s fascinating and it offers intriguing opportunities for using with tapestry (once we start doing things) and family. i’ll have to get me one of these after i take care of the other things on my plate.

photojojo describes even more about this freaky thing.

  1. This is great. I have been looking for a camera with this very feature built in. Granted, I don’t like the idea of spending an extra $99, but this will let me pick ANY camera I want and still get the function I need. (or multiple cameras and swap this card in and out for particular events).
