I’ve long known Eyefi to be a great way to wirelessly send images from my camera to my computer or mobile device. My Sony RX100 doesn’t have the WiFi of my NEX-6 so an EyeFi card is a must for me when I use it on the go. Now the company is upping the anti with their Eyefi Cloud service.
The service allows all newly captured photos to be instantly available on smartphones, tablets, PCs and SmartTVs. The service is just $49 for a twelve-month membership and allows you to share an unlimited number of photos. As the Press Release noted
Eyefi Cloud was designed for photo enthusiasts who require the superior image quality provided by digital cameras but are frustrated with the time-consuming processes required to enjoy those photos on multiple devices. Eyefi Cloud, along with the Eyefi Mobi wireless SD card and Eyefi Mobi apps, makes every picture organized and instantly accessible, anytime anywhere—to enjoy, curate and share securely and privately.
Eyefi Chief Executive Officer Matt DiMaria further notes that
Photo lovers know that life’s most important moments should be captured using a digital camera but it’s difficult to access those shots until long after the images are taken. Eyefi Cloud makes those highest-quality shots available within seconds of them being captured, so photographers can immediately enjoy quality images on the beautiful displays of their smartphone, tablet, PC or smart TV.
The new Eyefi photo related services include the ability to
- Transfer – Add wireless functionality to any digital camera, and easily send images from camera to mobile device or desktop.
- Organize – Sort and tag images as they are taken, so they are easy to find later – for sharing, printing, and all the other wonderful ways photos are used.
- Sync – Automatically synchronize photos to all devices so that users can view, edit, and manipulate photos both on and offline, anytime, anywhere.
- Share – Invite friends and family to view photos and albums without requiring registration. Photo collections are “live”, so any additions to an existing collection will generate a notice to recipients that new images have been added.
And if you have more than one camera, there’s no need to worry. Eyefi Cloud will automatically merge all of your photos into a single, well-organized collection
Eyefi Mobi wireless SD memory cards begin at just $49 for 8GB cards. The new Eyefi Mobi apps are available in the iTunes App Store, the Google Play App Store, and the Amazon Kindle App Store. A three-month membership to Eyefi Cloud is available as soon as the new account is activated. We’ll have a closer look soon. You can learn more here.
