Eye-Fi Memory Cards Automatically Upload Videos to YouTube and FlickrMar 5th, 2009 | By Elisabeth Lewin | Category: Computer Hardware, iPhone
Updating a story we first told you about in January, wireless memory card maker Eye-Fi today announced the release of two new wireless SD memory cards that will upload videos directly from a digital camera to a computer and the Web. In addition to automatic photo uploads, the next generation Eye-Fi cards can deliver users’ video clips to YouTube or Flickr.
“The magic of Eye-Fi’s new cards is that they work with the camera you already own to capture photos – and now videos – and send them directly to the Web for sharing,” said Jef Holove, CEO for Eye-Fi. “Your memories will upload in the background for instant sharing – all by simply turning on your camera.”
The 4GB Eye-Fi Share Video and Eye-Fi Explore Video cards can upload photos and videos directly to one of more than 25 online photo sharing and social networking sites. The Eye-Fi Explore Video card automatically geotags photos and videos with location information about where the image was captured, and offers hotspot access at more than 10,000 Wi-Fi locations for photo and video uploads away from home.
The next generation Eye-Fi cards are available for pre-order at www.eye.fi for an MSRP of $79 (4GB Eye-Fi Share Video) and $99 (4GB Eye-Fi Explore Video). The cards will be available in bricks-and-mortar stores later this month.
Friday, Eye-Fi will release a new iPhone application that allows Eye-Fi users to store and share all their photos, from both iPhone and a digital camera, into the same organized computer folder and to one of 25 online photo sharing Web sites. iPhone users who own an Eye-Fi card can download the free application from Apple’s App Store.
