Eye-Fi Wireless Photo Memory Card + a Giveaway!

by Marcy on April 18, 2011 · 57 comments

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Eye-Fi for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Recently I was asked to review the Eye-Fi Wireless Photo & Video Memory Card. After checking to make sure that the card was compatible with my camera (do so here), I quickly agreed – they had me at “easy to use, and saves you time”. :-)

I found the Eye-Fi Card to be extremely easy to use, which is super important to me these days. All that I had to do to use it was open the package and place the card in my camera. After taking my pictures instead of having to remove my card and place it in my laptop, I simply turned my camera on and was able to download my photos wirelessly to my laptop. I found this feature to be especially nice when visiting my mom, because I could easily share photos with her (desktop) computer without having to upload them to photo sharing sites, searching around for my camera cable etc…

The Eye-Fi wireless card organizes photos & videos into folders based by date, which is very convenient. I also think that this card is nice for those who find digital cameras to be intimidating (my mother in law comes to mind) – because they really do make the upload process so easy.

In order to use an Eye-Fi wireless card all that you have to do is:

1) Make sure your camera is compatible

2) Have a Wi-Fi network 802.11b/g/n 2.4Ghz and Broadband internet

3) Run Windows XP/Vista/7 or Mac OS X 10.5 and up on your computer

We have a cruise coming up, so it would be great to win his so our family can easily see how our trip is going!

2 Jill April 18, 2011 at 11:22 AM

I’ve got family all over the place, and it’s so difficult for me to share my baby’s moments with them! I just now uploaded pictures of her first birthday (she was born in early February). I would love to have one of these!

I love that it gives you the ability to download photos wirelessly to your pc or laptop.

I’d love to win this, so I can upload photos right away instead of either can’t find my card later or forget…

6 Lisa April 18, 2011 at 11:35 AM

Oh my goodness – this would help me so much to get my pics posted in a more timely fashion!

7 Kathy Linklater April 18, 2011 at 11:37 AM

The WiFi would be so nice for me because I feel like I struggle every time I want to upload a picture–plus I wouldn’t have to locate my cable.

8 rupa April 18, 2011 at 11:37 AM

we are trying to start a photo website and this would make it so much easier!

9 Heather April 18, 2011 at 12:15 PM

I’ve had my eye on one of these. This would make my job so much easier. I upload video and photos to my company’s website and my blog. This would save so much time!

10 Stacey April 18, 2011 at 12:19 PM

I sometimes go weeks, even months, before I remember to upload photos off my camera. Due to this I usually get more use out of the camera in my phone becuase I can instantly email them, but the quality isn’t so good.

11 Andrea Watts April 18, 2011 at 12:30 PM

I need it because my whole family uses my camera

I would like to win one to give to my husband for a surprise. He is really into photography and this would make him so happy!

14 Steph April 18, 2011 at 1:18 PM

I was just researching these cards this morning! I would love to be able to upload my photos using wifi. Right now, I just leave them on the card for months and months instead of being able to upload them right away.

15 lisa w. April 18, 2011 at 2:02 PM

I would love to win this for my hubby – it would help out a lot!

16 qchi April 18, 2011 at 3:58 PM

I would love this because we just had a baby (2 month old) and it would make uploading his pictures soo easy for us and also so that we could share it with the grandparents who aren’t so good with technology!

17 Lisa M April 18, 2011 at 4:07 PM

I am the designated “photographer” at family events. It would be so nice to be able to upload the photos of my nephew’s baptism to my sister-in-law’s computer right away rather than going home, burning them to a disc for her and then having to remember to take it with me when we go to visit next (they are an hour away).

18 John April 18, 2011 at 5:06 PM

Would be great to have for my Canaon Camera!

19 Allison April 18, 2011 at 5:15 PM

I would love to win this Eye-Fi memory card to upload travel photos quickly so I can get them backed up online. It’s too much effort to upload the traditional way and I end up leaving all my photos on the camera. That’s just asking for trouble!

20 traci s April 18, 2011 at 5:19 PM

because i sure could use it , i take tons of pictures of my family and grandson, and this summer we have a huge family reunion so this would be great , thanks

21 traci s April 18, 2011 at 5:20 PM
22 Barb S April 18, 2011 at 5:30 PM

I’m happy to see that this card works with my camera! This would be great–I’m so bad about keeping pictures on the card, and no one ever gets to see them.

23 Kim Colville April 18, 2011 at 5:57 PM

I would absolutely love this for all the camps and stuff my family will be involved in this summer!

24 Christina April 18, 2011 at 6:13 PM

I would love to win this! It would make uploading pictures so much quicker and easier!!

25 Connie April 18, 2011 at 7:06 PM

It would just make it so much easier for me to sort and upload my photos.

26 Michelle R April 18, 2011 at 7:37 PM

Oh man — that sounds like a great product! I didn’t even know that was possible! I have so many gosh darn cords sticking out of my computer, this would be a life saver! I spend too much time searching for the right connection for the right piece of equipment! =]

27 Karen B. April 18, 2011 at 7:59 PM

I would love to be able to upload pics to any of the four laptops my family owns.

28 Sarah M. April 18, 2011 at 8:52 PM

I just started a photography business on the side and it would be so wonderful to upload the photos so effortlessly!

29 Sarah M. April 18, 2011 at 8:52 PM

I tweeted about the giveaway (@sarahsmyers).

30 Aaron M April 18, 2011 at 8:58 PM

It would make life so much easier not having to plug the camera in every time I wanted to move pictures over.

31 Julie Jones April 18, 2011 at 9:05 PM

I would love to win this. I often forget my media card in my computer and it would benefit me to have this so I don’t forget to put the card back in my camera! Thanks!

32 Julie Jones April 18, 2011 at 9:05 PM
33 Julia April 18, 2011 at 9:10 PM

Because I need help organizing my photos

34 Jackie Penn April 18, 2011 at 11:47 PM

I would love to have this clever card for my camera since I am always deleting pics to make room for more.

35 Laurey Byrd April 19, 2011 at 8:48 AM

It would be so much easier to upload photos

36 Cathy April 19, 2011 at 2:30 PM

I would love to win this. I still have pictures of my daughter’s birth (a year ago!) on my camera.

37 Kristine D April 19, 2011 at 3:10 PM

I am an amateur photographer; or should I say “was”! We have a little girl (22 mos) and a brand new baby boy (18 days), so I certainly don’t have the time to spend taking pictures of anything but them these days! I love to concentrate on my babies’ photogenic sides! A card like this would be an amazing asset to a very busy mom like me! Not to mention the fact that the grandparents & great-grandparents would get the pics so much faster!

38 Ann April 19, 2011 at 3:57 PM

I could finally share pics with my friends online instead of the ordeal it is now to upload a pic.

39 Diana April 20, 2011 at 8:01 AM

I don’t like having to hook up with a cord to my computer. This would be so quick!

40 Kacey April 20, 2011 at 8:59 AM

This would be a life changer for me! Pictures sit on my card for months (months!!) and I am always scared that when I put the card in my computer, I will somehow mess it all up and my pictures will be gone forever! This would give me such peace of mind – I hope I win!!

41 Samantha Smith April 20, 2011 at 6:16 PM

Hi! I would love to win this item because it would make it much easier to share photos of my baby with my family. My husband and I are stationed far from both families and do not get to visit often but when we do we love to take as many pictures as we can to remember the brief time we spend with our families. Thanks so much! Good luck everyone! :)

42 kim April 20, 2011 at 6:59 PM

I would love to win this as we always seem to missplace the cable for the computer. Sounds like an awesome product!

43 Kelly P April 21, 2011 at 6:50 AM

I’m terrible at leaving pics on my camera forever- I would love to win this!

44 Brigitta April 21, 2011 at 6:23 PM

I am a new mother and the opportunities for great photos are endless and the amount of fans my little guy has requires lots of uploading and sharing. This would be AWESOME!

45 Thabal April 21, 2011 at 7:12 PM

One can never find my hubby without his camera, he would love this! Such a neat idea to upload photos immediately. Thanks for the giveaway.

46 Thabal April 21, 2011 at 7:15 PM
47 Amy April 22, 2011 at 5:50 PM

This would help me actually upload my pics to share with my family who is 6 hours away. What a blessing it would be to win this.

48 Tori Carlin April 23, 2011 at 12:17 PM

My daughter is just learning how to take pictures with a digital camera. Needless to say she takes hundreds but only a few are any good. It would be a blessing to be able to upload them right away so we can keep the good ones without having to go through the hassle of hooking everything up. My computer has wifi but doesn’t have a card slot (it’s too old & i’m too broke to replace it) so we always are searching for the connector.

49 Crystal K. April 24, 2011 at 6:53 PM

I’d love to win so I could save time when uploading the many photos I take!

50 Crystal K. April 24, 2011 at 6:54 PM
51 Lina April 25, 2011 at 4:03 PM

It would be so helpful in uploading my pictures because I never can find my wires!

52 Lina April 25, 2011 at 4:04 PM
53 Camiele April 27, 2011 at 3:13 PM

I would really help me to get my pictures and videos off of my camera since I’m always losing the cord!

54 Camiele April 27, 2011 at 3:13 PM

Tweeted about it on Twitter.

55 Jennifer P April 29, 2011 at 3:46 AM

I like that you can use your Wi-Fi network instead of hunting for cables or card readers to download your pictures. What a time saver for me!!

56 jameee klement April 29, 2011 at 10:55 AM

i have 2 kids under the age of 3 so its not easy finding time to sit down and upload all of my pictures! This would make my life alot easier!
