eyefi is a simple storage solution for your photos,think of the cloud if you will,something most major players in the market are pushing now such as Apple,Microsoft and Google,The cloud is the way forward for some and others have issues such as security which to be fair is a fair point,even myself is a bit weary of cloud storage but now I personally have increased my usage over the last year,I tend to be a micro sd fan and now with more devices loosing this I have began to just autosave to the cloud more..
eyefi comes packed as seen below which contains and 8GB card in our case and a membership card which has your activation code,the card also comes in various storage sizes,also this is cross platform and works on Android,iOS and Windows phone,and Kindle,to begin you get 90 days trial which means you have to sign up,there is also an eyefi pro version too. You get unlimited full resolution photos and up to 300 videos/month for just $4.99/month.
To make it simple you place this card into your camera,it needs to have wifi though and then you can connect any device with the eyefi app and see what’s on the camera roll from any device with the app installed or your PC.Simple enough right!
How it works.
Its simple really it will store,manage and sync your photos and videos in full resolution so it wont downscale as we often see when sharing to social media for example,It works with most professional cameras and Go-Pro etc which have Wi-Fi enabled capabilities,otherwise you can however pop the card into your PC and use the usual methods to share….though the aim of this product is cable free transfer which is more convenient and as we all know convenience wins but for some they prefer to old fashioned way..
CABLE-FREE PHOTO AND VIDEO TRANSFER. Transfer photos and videos wirelessly to your Android smartphone, tablet or computer.
FIND PHOTOS FAST. Photos are automatically tagged and organized by categories: food, nature, sunset, and more and by camera, device, date, location, lens, aperture, speed.
PRESERVE ORIGINAL RESOLUTION PHOTOS AND VIDEOS. All photos and videos are safe, secure and accessible exactly as you shot them—at original resolution.
UNLIMITED PHOTO BACKUP. Store unlimited full resolution photos and up to 300 videos/month for just $4.99/month. Automatic backup to both cloud and desktop secures photos and videos and free up space on your phone.
KEEP ALL YOUR PICTURES WITH YOU. Access all your photos – even your computer stored collection – anytime, anywhere – on or offline.
One drawback I feel needs addressing here is the option to select single images to upload rather than what you take,however you can lock images which is a workaround in the interim…
