by on Dec.21, 2011, under Personal

I got new Eye-Fi card which you cant buy from Singapore. I need to ship it from Amazon.com. I lost one of it when I borrow from Alan about a year ago. That mistake cause me S$190. Well the price has come down now. The new Eye-fi card only cost me
around S$78 before shipping.

So what is Eye-Fi card. It is a SD card.. haha… but with WIFI capability[Don’t confuse with SD-IO card]. Eye-Fi is been designed to transfer the file over the wifi to your pc. For examples, you come back from photo shooting and you need to take your card from camera and plug to your pc card reader, copy the file and put it back to your camera. Oh most of the time you forgot put it back to your camera and next time go out with big camera without card inside. Here come Eye-Fi card to the rescue, you come back from photo shooting and all you need to do it enable the Eye-Fi. All the files magically appear in your computer. Easy right. You will need to setup your WiFi prior to that.

So here i got mine and configure up and running. One of the most advantage of this is the unlimited space capabilities. It can continuously uploading while you continue shooting, I notice the upload stop when your camera saving the file then it continues. It took about 2-3 sec to upload a 18 mega pixel jpeg file on the Wifi 802.11n network. I still have not get this tested on actual usage. My friend comment that this is draining lots of camera battery even when you turn it off. Well, I will test it out this Eye-Fi card this Chinese New Yaer in Malaysia.

PS: I found there is a store selling Eye-Fi card in Malaysia and the price quite reasonable. Hit the link below to see their price

Update: Remove link that sells Eye-Fi. No longer exist
