Eye-Fi Wins Top CNET Award

Eye-Fi Wins Top CNET Award

We have just received word that firm photo favourite with TotalApps, Eye-Fi have been named CNET’S best of CES 2010 in the Digital Photo and Video category.  Eye-Fi was at the Las Vegas based conference to launch the 8GB Eye-Fi Pro X2 which is the most advanced memory card yet.

We reviewed the Eye-Fi card (read the review here) and added it to the highly recommended christmas gift list.

The 8GB SDHC Eye-Fi Pro X2 is powered by Eye-Fi’s proprietary X2 engine which includes an exclusively designed chip and an 802.11n radio. The X2 engine enables greater flexibility in memory capacity and faster read write/speeds, achieving Class 6 performance.

The 802.11n radio and a new antenna design enable faster wireless uploads and increased Wi-Fi range, and still support the 802.11b and 802.11g standards.

The Eye-Fi Pro X2 wirelessly uploads JPEG and RAW images and videos from the camera to computer and one of 25 online photo and video sharing sites, such as Flickr, Picasa or Facebook. It also allows users to create an ad hoc connection to their computer to wirelessly upload photos and videos while away from a wireless router. Pro X2 automatically geotags photos with information about where the images were taken.

In Endless Memory mode users can choose to have Eye-Fi automatically make space available on their Eye-Fi Pro X2. Using the card’s ability to communicate with the Eye-Fi Service, it receives confirmation whenever photos and videos are safely delivered to the user’s computer and/or online sharing site.

When the card reaches the user’s pre-determined amount of space used, it will remove files that have been safely uploaded, beginning with the oldest  – even when the card is not connected to the network.  If files have not yet been uploaded, the Pro X2 will not remove them. This option can be set up in the Eye-Fi Center.

Jef Holove, CEO of Eye-Fi, comments: “We’re extremely proud to have won CNET’s Best of CES 2010 in the Digital Photo & Video category! It’s been a great year for Eye-Fi with the UK launch in October, and we’re really excited to soon be launching the most powerful memory card on the market.”

The new 8GB Eye-Fi Pro X2 will be available in the UK by the second quarter at select online and retail locations.
