Digitwirl: Transfer photos in a flash with Eye-Fi

This week’s twirl features the Eye-Fi — a product that’s been on my wish list since November 2010, when Clockwork published a Cyber Monday Gift Guide. Jenny Holman, a fellow Clockworker, raved about how easy it was to use. And, while it doesn’t seem like it should be a big deal to plug a dumb cord into your computer to download photos, I have to ‘fess up: earlier today, I finally downloaded photos off my camera from Christmas. Yes, Christmas!

So, maybe if I get an Eye-Fi for Mother’s Day I can finally cut the (camera) cord and share photos with the grandparents that are just a little bit more timely. Until then, I guess I’ll be posting these photos of my kids as part of a Christmas in July celebration.

Digitwirl: Transfer your digital photos in a flash with Eye-Fi

Remember the dark ages of family photos: buying film, taking it to be developed, and cringing at all the shots of you with your eyes closed? Bet you thought when you got a digital camera things couldn’t get much easier. So did we. Until we discovered the Eye-fi wireless camera card.

This 4 gig card instantly, wirelessly transfers all your pictures from your camera to your computer, social networks, and photo sharing sites, making it easier than ever to store and share all your shots. No more finding the correct wires and that pesky little card reader, not to mention setting aside the time you need to transfer them. In fact, we love this clever device so much it’s become one of our top picks for best gift ever.
