Update on the DSLR camera I bought at the end of last month? I am LOVING it. I’m still learning the ropes of shooting in manual mode, so if anyone has a recommendation on a photography class, please let me know! I think it’d be helpful to hear some insights from the pros, for sure.
A couple weeks ago I mentioned the only real thing bothering me about the camera (and not even the camera itself), is the fact that I needed to wait until I could get to my computer, pop in the memory card, and upload, before I could send photos to friends/fam or post on social media.
Cue my discovery of Eyefi (mentioned in my Fun Findings Friday post), which seemed like it would solve this issue. Well, I’ve spent the last couple weeks testing it out, and *insert hallelujah hands up emoji* it’s awesome, and does indeed solve the problem.
Here’s how it works.
You’ll also connect to the camera’s Wi-Fi on your phone, which will save for easy transfer of your photos.
Once you’re ready to move the photos from your camera to your phone/tablet/computer, keep your camera on and open up the Eyefi app. The transfer will happen automatically!
Post-transfer, you’ll be able to see all of your photos across multiple devices (thanks to Eyefi’s cloud service) and can save, send, and share, as well as crop and tag for quick reference. The only downside is that every single photo is transferred, rather than ones you select (the selective transfer is currently only available with the 32GB card), so the number of photos moved over can be overwhelming if you’ve taken a lot of photos.
So far, my experience with Eyefi has been fantastic! If you own a camera (and especially if you’re a blogger), it’s a product I highly recommend! Being able to access your photos on the spot is pretty awesome!
And on that note, I’m excited to be partnering with Eyefi to give away an 8GB Eyefi Mobi card to one of you lucky readers! Post your favorite summer travel photo, using the hashtag #EyefiSummer!
What’s your favorite summer travel memory?
