NYC Technology: Eye-Fi Review

Written by Kitty Bradshaw and posted in Tags: , , , , , , , , , Sponsored Post,Technology

Hey House Cats-

 

So I was given the Eye-Fi – Wireless PRO X2 8GB Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) Memory Card by the Best Buy WOLF Team to try out and review.  Now in full disclosure… the Eye PRO X2 is not compatible with my Sony DSLR a330, so I won’t be able to give a personal example of how reliable it is.  BUT! What I can do is go into great detail about is how it works, and how genius the concept of it is.

 

WHAT IS IT?

The Eye-Fi – Wireless PRO X2 8GB Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) Memory Card is a wireless memory card. It is compatible with most items that use a memory card.

HOW DOES IT WORK? (Corrected by Nat)

There is one small step you need to take before using the Eye-Fi memory card which is download the software and set it to connect to your WiFi.  Once you have completed the first step, insert the memory card into your camera.  Next- you take pictures, bring your camera home, turn your computer on, and sit your camera in front of it.  While your camera is sitting there it will wirelessly transmit your pictures onto your computer.  What sets the Eye-Fi apart from its competitors is the fact that you can set it up to transfer your pictures directly to FaceBook, Picassa, Photobucket, and a few other file sharing sites.

 

 

THE BEAUTY OF IT

I know you all can relate when I tell you about how many times I have taken my camera with me and accidentally left my memory card home in my computer.  Without a memory card, I can’t take and store pictures.  Depending on how far I was away from my house… I either had to waste time going back home to retrieve my card, or go to a local Best Buy to purchase a new one.  The other set back  is me forgetting to make space on my memory card for new pictures.  The Eye-Fi eliminates all of the hassle of owning a standard memory card.  The Eye-Fi manages your pictures without you having to remove the card from your device.

PRICE POINT

Retail Price is $99.  Compared to it;s competitors this extremely reasonable.

WHERE TO PURCHASE

You can purchase at your local Best Buy store or on BestBuy.com.

    I use Eye-Fi and there are some errors in your review, first there is no need to leave the card reader attached to your computer.
    You did not mention that there is a Eye-Fi mobile app for you phone and works great and finally you have to download the Eye-Fi desk top app so you can program the memory card.

    • I did also mention that it was not compatible with my camera so I wasn’t able to give a personal review. However, you are right… I misunderstood that part of it. Also, thank you for adding in your favorite features.
