Eye-Fi Explore – Wirelessly geotag your photos

by Jon Thompson on August 20, 2008

Katherine Boehret over at All Things Digital has an interesting write-up on Eye-Fi‘s new Explore card.  Eye-Fi cards use your WiFi network to upload your photos directly from your camera to your computer.  While this may not interest some of you those with an established office that are doing a lot of in-house picture taking may benefit from the functionality of the Eye-Fi card.  While Katherine is not overly impressed she does provide quite a bit of information about Eye-Fi and their offerings.

The Explore version geotags your photos but unfortunately you need to be within range of a Skyhook WiFi network for it to work.  (Ms. Boehret could not geotag her photos while stopped along Hwy 101 so I am pretty sure those of you working in Chad are SOL.)  However, the standard Eye-Fi card might prove of interest to some of you especially if you find yourself continuously having to open and close your camera, pull your card or plug in an external cable in less than ideal conditions.
