Make Your Digital Camera Wireless

The idea of a completely wireless world keeps getting closer and closer to a reality. The latest step in this evolution is the ability to transfer photos and videos from your digital camera to your computer or even to photo sharing sites like Flickr and Facebook. No USB cable or card reader needed.

Luckily, you probably don’t need to replace your digital camera to get this amazing functionality.
Thanks to the Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Card, any digital camera that uses an SD card can become Wi-Fi enabled.

After a short configuration process, the Eye-Fi memory card will automatically upload your photos to your computer or a favorite photo sharing website. This can take place through your home or office’s wireless network or from anywhere internet access is available. As in this real life example, the photo transfer could take place even after the camera is lost or stolen.

The uses for this technology in the real estate industry are endless:

  • Photos of a new listing could be transmitted back to the office for marketing pieces to be started on immediately.
  • Make the digital photography easier for those real estate agents with an aversion to technology.
  • Community focused bloggers, share photos quickly by posting to Flickr or any of more the 20 photo sharing sites.
  • Not remember where a photo was from or what house it was in? Automatic Geotagging of photos will provide a quick answer to where the photo was taken at.

Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Card models range in price from $80 to $130 for 2-4 GB of storage. This is a lot costlier than a $20 standard 2GB SD card. If convenience and ease of use are important to you and your real estate business, the investment could be well worth it.
