I am curious if any of you have used any of the Eye-Fi brand SD cards for your photography. I discovered that the D5000 actually has Eye-Fi functionality built in and I find the concept pretty interesting but I have never tried one. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Eye-Fi cards, they are SD memory cards that have built-in wi-fi technology. This allows you to actually upload images to your computer or to a photo-sharing site such as Flickr, Facebook, Picasa, and more, all from inside your camera. There are actually 4 flavors of Eye-Fi with varying capabilities from simple home computer transfer to those that geotag and allow access to over 10,000 wi-fi hotspots.
I love the concept of going out for a morning shoot, coming home and grabbing a bite to eat, and then sitting down at my computer to look at my automatically downloaded images. The problem is that I don’t own one nor do I know anyone that has used one, so I’m not sure just how well they work. I would love to get one to test in the D5000 (and possibly add it to my bonus chapter on camera accessories) but I don’t want to waste my money if it’s not worth the trouble. So if any of you has had any experience using one, I would love to hear about it. You can find out more about Eye-Fi cards by clicking here.
