Photography buffs will love the Eye-Fi Mobi or Pro X2 WiFi memory cards

Any photography fans in your family or circle of friends? Make them happy with the Eye-Fi Mobi or the Eye-Fi Pro X2 WiFi memory cards! Eye-Fi, makers of the world’s first wireless memory card, is dedicated to products and services that help consumers manage and share their digital memories. Eye-Fi’s  patented and patent-pending technology wirelessly and automatically uploads photos and videos to connected devices as well as in-home, cloud, and production destinations. Eye-Fi has helped people wirelessly upload more than 500 million photos since 2005. The Mobi is a new Eye-Fi card created with care and commitment to state-of-the-art performance in SD memory. HD video, low light and fast action shots are easily captured with this Class 10, high-capacity card.

So, let’s  take a closer look at what the Mobi memory card is, and what it does.

 

Eye-Fi Mobi memory card

Replace your camera’s dumb memory card with a smart one!

The Eye-Fi Mobi is available in 8GB or 16GB

Designed for the modern photo enthusiast who wants to share high-quality digital photography quickly without hassle, the Eye-Fi Mobi memory card makes digital camera images effortlessly sync to smartphones and tablets.

“People like smartphones for taking pictures, mostly because of accessibility and instant sharing. Unfortunately, smartphones fall short for life’s many moments that require zooming, high-speed shooting, low light and other features that make digital cameras superior,” said Matt DiMaria, CEO of Eye-Fi. “Mobi is our simplest card yet, designed to provide photo lovers a no-compromises solution: the great quality pictures and videos of a digital camera and instant access on the smartphone to enjoy and share.”

Mobi removes the hassle of transferring images so photography buffs can freely focus on taking beautiful, memorable photos. No more juggling devices where you’d use your camera to capture quality images and then fumble with your smartphone to snap inferior-quality piecemeal “duplicates” just for the sake of sharing. Why cope with all that slowness and compromise? The Eye-Fi Mobi card is the remedy for all that. Simply replace any camera’s standard SD card with Mobi, and after a quick set-up (two quick steps), the camera’s photos instantly appear on your iOS or Android™ smartphone or tablet! So your best photos become instantly readable to the apps you know and love such as your everyday email app, Instagram, Camera Awesome, facebook, etc. If your friends ask why it seems your smartphone’s camera suddenly ‘got better,’ tell them it has nothing to do with your phone – the Mobi is the reason they’re seeing pics taken with your camera with incredible speed. A conversation might sound like this:

Friend: Whoa, your pics are suddenly really good quality. These pics are from your phone!?!
You: No, I only sent them with my phone. The actual pics were taken with my camera.
Friend: Well, how did you send them over the internet to me in like 5 seconds?
You: I put an Eye-Fi Mobi card in my camera instead of a normal SD memory card. The Mobi syncs to my phone’s camera roll instantly without me needing to touch anything.
Friend: Oh! I thought maybe your phone got some sort of internal upgrade or something – because those pics you sent were truly awesome.
You: Haha, no – those pics are still on my camera but they’re also on my phone now. The Mobi card and Eye-Fi app pair my phone with my camera.
Friend: I want that! Is the app free?
You: Yes, the app is free 🙂 The actual Mobi card is less than $50 for the 8GB version.

Another Eye-Fi product available is the
Pro X2 WiFi SD card, 16GB

Pro X2 automatically synchronizes your photos & videos to a secure, personal cloud

The Pro X2 WiFi SD card, 16GB

The Pro X2 WiFi SD card (16GB) provides twice the storage capacity of the prior Pro X2 card, while the Class 10 performance delivers ultra-fast read and write speeds. That means more power and speed for the same retail price of $99.99. And, the new Pro X2, like Eye-Fi’s other X2 series cards, enables you to wirelessly connect a camera to a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, or use an authorized WiFi network to move content directly to a computer.

Cameras have more megapixels, and pictures and videos are more demanding in terms of size. Moving to a 16GB, Class 10 card keeps up with these trends and delivers what  Eye-Fi’s customers have been asking for.

Anyone with the new 16GB, Class 10 card can immediately use Eye-Fi’s popular features to:

Upload anywhere
Users can instantly upload images to their home computer, smartphone or tablet, either connecting wirelessly to the device with Direct Mode or over an authorized WiFi network

Shoot forever with endless memory mode

Cards can be set to automatically free-up space after photos & videos are transferred, so photographers never have to worry about running out of space. Transfer RAW files: as with the prior Pro X2, the highest resolution photos can transfer wirelessly

Back-up automatically: Pictures are safely stored on a home computer or Eye-Fi’s cloud, Eye-Fi View – a great relief if the camera is lost or stolen

Share in real-time: Card can be set to automatically share with selected social networks or photo sharing sites (Facebook, Flickr, etc.) How cool is that? 🙂

Know someone who’s a proud globetrotter? The Pro X2 lets them Geotag pictures immediately! 🙂 Eye-Fi’s auto WPS Geotagging feature tags photos, allowing users to instantly see where memories were made.
