KDDI Corp have been showing off two microSD cards with integrated WiFi b/g in Japan this week. Although SD cards with integrated WLAN are not uncommon - Eye-Fi is a good example of the technology, used to add wireless photo and video uploads to digital cameras and camcorders - it's more unusual to find the components sufficiently shrunk down to fit on a microSD card.
Eye-Fi have announced their latest wireless memory card, the 4GB Eye-Fi Pro. Using the SDHC format, the new Eye-Fi Pro offers the usual automatic wireless transfer of images from digital cameras to a computer or website; however it also adds new file-type support, increased control over which images are synchronized, more flexible WiFi connectivity and video functionality.
The Eye-Fi Pro 4GB now includes "Selective Transfer", which allows users to choose which photos and/or videos are uploaded. This bypasses the issue with the older cards where every shot was transferred; according to Eye-Fi all users will now be able to use Selective Transfer, not just those with the Pro 4GB. Images are selected by locking them through the camera's own menus.
People that use Eye-Fi video memory cards know that they can directly upload pictures and videos to websites like Flickr and YouTube. But a new update announced today makes it so you can upload to three more supported sites, and it's still just as easy.
Eye-Fi's latest Explore Video 4GB card has come in for examination over at GeekTonic, and if you've ever wished you could get on with sharing video clips rather than going through the hassle of retrieving them from your digital camera, this could be the SDHC card for you. Reviewer Brent was impressed by how straightforward the system is, though battery life on your device will take a hit from powering the WiFi radio.
Eye-Fi have now officially launched their latest wireless memory cards, that not only offer 4GB of storage but can automatically upload video to YouTube and Flickr. The cards, which were first announced back at CES, in fact support more than 20 online media sharing sites, and will automatically transfer images and video content when in a predefined WiFi hotspot. The company has also announced a new iPhone application for Eye-Fi owners.
The Eye-Fi folks are at it again, this time announcing a new technology they plan to integrate into their Wi-Fi enabled memory cards. You were able to wirelessly upload photos before, and soon, you'll be able to upload video.
Eye-Fi have marked their first birthday with the launch of a new, special edition anniversary card. The new WiFi-enabled SD card now contains 4GB of storage rather than the standard models' 2GB. While as standard the new 4GB card does not come with any of Eye-Fi's more advanced features, such as geotagging or automatic hotspot uploads, these can be subscribed to separately.
