    Photos shouldn’t be trapped in your camera. Set them free.

    The Eye-Fi Card is a wireless memory card. It automatically uploads pictures from your digital camera to your PC or Mac and to your favorite photo sharing, printing, blogging or social networking site.

    No cables, no waiting, no hassles.

    Could SD -> CF card adaptors be used... perhaps?
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    just make sure you don't have images that should not be shared when you get home and turn on your camera

    I'm not sure how well it will work...

    Firstly, you'll have a very small antenna. Also, there will be limited power available to the camera card slot. So basically, I'm thinking you get very limited range and low transfer speeds with this thing. Also, it won't work with any existing cameras unless they get a whole new firmware.

    The eye-fi has a working range of 45 feet indoors and 90 feet outdoors. It also works with existing cameras as long as they read/write to SD card formats. A list of compatible camera models and all working functions are available on the website - if only people would bother to read it.

    Not much written about transfer speeds but I doubt it's impressive. Still, it's a nifty gadget and probably a much cheaper alternative to a wireless handgrip, etc. It's a move in the right direction and this technology can only get better to the consumer's benefit.

    i have no idea how can they squeeze a wireless transmitter into something as small as an SD card. need to note that it needs space for the SD - memory bridge and the memory chip itself.
    random equipment.
    where are my primes?

    Well, mini SD can be put into a SD card adapter to fit into normal size.. So.. I belive its quite easy to squeeze a transmitter in with it.

    Be careful... this device require NO transparent proxy in the internet connection for its software, which kinda rules out most of us here in Singapore.
