Wireless SD Cards

You ever get sick of having to move around SD cards to get info off of them or get tired of finding or untangling that annoying mini USB cable?

Well the there is a solution now, Eye-Fi offers the solution of a wireless SD card. You can upload directly to your PC, Web or Both automatically. It also does Geotagging which will add location tags to your photos.

Unfortunately, they are a bit pricey starting at about $80 for a 2 GB of memory but if you have the cash or need to have top of the line technology then this would be great. Mind you I am a cheap bastard so I have not bought one myself but they seem pretty sweet, and I certainly like the idea.

If I ever came across an extra cash I didn't have to spend on anything else, I would totally buy a couple. One to put in my camera and one to put in my Wii. One downside is that they don't have any Eye-Fi Manager software for Linux.

To quote the Eye-Fi requirements page:

  • Eye-Fi Card works with 802.11g, 802.11b and backwards-compatible 802.11n wireless networks
  • Eye-Fi software works with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OS X (10.4 and 10.5)
  • Eye-Fi software works with Internet Explorer 6 and 7 (Windows only), Firefox 2.0 (Windows and OS X) and Safari 3 ( OS X 10.4 -10.5)
  • Eye-Fi card requires an Internet connection for setup and a wireless router with DHCP enabled for wireless transfers

This isn't a paid review, so if you know of a better wireless SD card, or a cheaper brand we would love to hear about it in the comments! Better yet, if you know of one that is compatible with Linux, we are all ears!
