The Third Major Revision Of Eye-fi Hardware

the third major revision of Eye-Fi hardware
Put simply, a tiny wireless radio inside frees your camera from the hassles of the cord or from having to take the card out to and plop it into your PC leaving you then to figure out which pictures you haven’t downloaded yet.
Now called the Eye-Fi Pro X2, this third major revision of the Eye-Fi hardware is its biggest update yet. Here are just some of the new features, and some comments on how well they work:
Updating the radio to 802.11n makes uploads to your PC much faster than ever of . With the original Eye-Fi hardware, your camera would often shut off before a single photo got uploaded. Now uploads are positively zippy, with next to no waiting. (That said, your camera will probably still shut off if you shoot a lot of photos between upload sessions. It took three power-on cycles to suck down all my Hawaii vacation photos.)

Remember when people used to predict that digital music sales would make up for the disappearing CD? Thats officially over now: Last quarter, for the first time ever, the number of digital songs sold in the U.S. declined on .Nielsen SoundScan says the drop was either 1 percent or 0.09 percent, depending on how you count, so this isnt the bottom falling out. But it does look like a peak, and its been in the works for some time.
The new Eye-Fi software is much cleaner and less buggy, and now you can sync more than one Eye-Fi card to a single computer.
? Other features give you more flexibility with your Eye-Fi card: “Endless Memory” automatically deletes shots once they are confirmed uploaded to your computer, and “Selective Transfer” lets you control which photos are uploaded instead of just grabbing everything on the card.
Overall stability the old Eye-Fi would often simply not upload files of no matter how good the wireless connection was is improved dramatically.
