I had heard of Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Cards a while ago but had never used them. When Best Buy handed me this product at BlogHer this year I was just absolutely PYSCHED to try it out! Not to mention that an 8GB is HUGE! That’s about 4000 photos or 3 hours of video! Essentially it’s a memory card for your camera that wirelessly uploads photos to your computer automatically. Which means no more manually taking the card out of the camera and going through the whole monkey business of shifting photos onto my computer! Do you KNOW how many pictures I take of my kids, and for products reviews on my blog? Do you have any idea how much time I
waste spend uploading photos? A LOT! A WHOLE lot!
So a few weeks ago my husband and I eagerly sat down and installed the program. You just have to install it the first time to set it up and it was very easy……
….until I realized that my camera was NOT compatible! WAAAHHHH! My trusty old Nikon D50 we have had for about 6-7 years now (which is probably ancient in the digital camera world!) and my camera only holds up to 2GB memory cards. But I’m definitely not giving this away! I’m *hoping* to update our digital camera in the next 6 months or so and will use our Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Card once we do so.
It comes with a simple USB plug-in and the memory card as well as a setup guide. Just plug it in your computer and follow the directions to set up!
