Eye-Fi cards arrive in Australia
(Credit: CBSi)After several years of Australians missing out on Eye-Fi, the wireless SD cards will finally be available on store shelves.
An Eye-Fi card looks and works just like a regular SD memory card, but has built-in Wi-Fi that can connect to a smartphone, computer or tablet. This allows photographers to almost instantly upload images to their devices, as well as store photos, just like a regular SD card does.
Three cards will be available from June:
Pro X2: 8GB of storage; class 6; JPEG, RAW and video support; 802.11n; automatic geotagging and backup; AU$119.99
Connect X2: 4GB of storage; class 6; JPEG and video support; 802.11n; AU$59.99
Mobile X2: same as Connect X2, except with 8GB storage; AU$99.99.
The Australian prices are just a tad dearer than their equivalent US retail amounts, at US$99.99, US$49.99 and US$79.99, respectively.
