These little memory cards are the sole reason why when I upgrade my digital camera, I’m going to made sure its SD compatible (My current one’s a Fuji, so it takes XD cards). Eye-Fi has now added video support to these cards, as well as upgrading them to SDHC technology.
Two new cards would join the lineup, the $79 Share Video and the $99 Explore Video. The Share model would upload videos to any of 20 sites automatically, while the Explore version adds geotagging, much like the original two models did.
Eye-Fi will keep its 2GB Eye-Fi Home and Share cars , which would drop to $49 and $59 respectively. These are only capable of transferring pictures, with the Home only to your home computer and not any sharing sites. The Explore version would be discontinued.
I think this is a great move for a company that has a unique product. With online video now becoming so popular, having a way to automatically upload your videos just makes good sense.
All the new cards are available today, and can be purchased from Eye-Fi’s website.
