The revolutionary new Eye-Fi Card looks and works just like a standard SD card except it has a tiny secret: Wi-Fi is built in. Now, docking your digital camera, connecting cables, and fumbling with card readers are a thing of the past. The Eye-Fi Card will wirelessly upload your photos from your camera onto your computer and the web.
It's as Easy as One-Two-Three (Cheese!)
Setting up the Eye-Fi Card couldn't be simpler. Install the included Eye-Fi Manager software on your home computer and connect the Eye-Fi Card to your home Wi-Fi network. A USB memory card reader is included to simplify set-up. After that, just stick the Eye-Fi Card into your camera and go out and take pictures as you normally would; it's when you return home that the magic begins. Once it connects to your home network, photos are automatically uploaded to your computer and, if you choose, your favorite photo or social networking website.
You Shoot Photos, Eye-Fi Does the Work
Uploading your photos to your computer and getting them where you want to share and print them is often a complicated and tedious task but Eye-Fi will do all the work for you, giving you more time to take more pictures and create more memories.
Upload to Computer
Uploading photos to your computer requires that your computer be turned on and running the Eye-Fi Manager software. When it detects the Eye-Fi Cardon the network, photos will be uploaded into the folder on your computer that you choose. You don't have to bother with cables or camera software; everything is automatic.
Upload to Web Eye-Fi also supports photo sharing and printing websites including Kodak Gallery, Snapfish, Shutterfly, Wal-Mart, Photobucket, Facebook, Webshots, Picasa Web Albums, SmugMug, Flickr, Fotki, TypePad, VOX, dotPhoto, Phanfare, Sharpcast and Gallery. It will automatically take care of log-ins and passwords, and it will even resize your photos if necessary for your chosen site.
Upload to Computer and Web
If you choose to have your photos delivered to both your computer and online, the Eye-Fi Card first uploads your pictures to the Eye-Fi Service, which then sends a copy to the website and one to your computer. In this mode, the Eye-Fi Service will hold onto your photos and deliver them to your computer the next time you turn it on. The photo that is sent to the website might be resized, but the one sent to your computer will retain its full resolution.
The included Eye-Fi Manager makes it easy to change preferences, letting you add wireless networks, change destinations, and adjust other settings.
