I've got this eye-fi before I found that RavPower 5-in-1 filehub is performing better than that one. Though it's a bigger than a light chip, it can be used as WIFI hotspot, battery charger and NAS server. The most I like it is how convenient it transfer my files from a phone to SD/USB. It's a valuable stuff you deserve to get one from Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AQUMZRA

Good advice Shehan But the range of optical zooming and the pixel rate is also should be considered.

True shehan there should be a limit for everything even for the FB also, for me I am a person who lives the privacy but I also have an FB account cause that I know that what to share and what not to share.

Simply it is because for easy to handle. We all will not carry the cameras with us every time but we carry the phone even when we are shopping also. Some times its better to have just a VGA camera than nothing.

Risk of losing all the dada or the risk of losing the phone with all the data.

And that includes a flat, 2D 'printed' antenna as the radiating element, which takes up a significant portion of the very limited X-Y layout area.  About the size of a postage stamp, as you can envision the size of the SD/MMC card overall.

Yup, you sure do! So, in addition to any use of the EyeFi cards involving all sort of extra technical complications, you lose control over copyright concerns.

 

Well it seems all the issues are linked to the nature of a openly networked web. Perhaps the chinese will figure out how to design a quantuum-entangled data link to write files directly to a network drive on the other side of the planet without needing any internet connection. I'm sure the pentagon would love to send data anywhere without any outside connections. But even better if VOIP phones could be setup to dial out from your home-based net connection allowing you to get a perfect 'signal' from anywhere on the planet.

I would ask the EyeFi support for questions regarding copyright issues to proprietary imagery. I doubt they would impose any nonsense like that, but you should ask them.

I saw that you can use the card to upload directly to a folder on your hard drive, so there's no need for any access to the internet. I've also seen a few blogs stating that AdHoc networking this card can be a bit buggy, so having a battery-powered router might be a good idea. It's still going to be a challenge to say why any EyeFi card is better than just having extra cards. A pro ought to have the budget to carry several 64 gig class 10 cards to shoot video properly.

 

EyeFi also offers their own cloud-hosting services, which can be used to download to any other media site. I would ask them about security for uploading to that while in the middle of a hacking paradise such as big conventions.

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
