Eye-Fi Card: If Someone Steals Your Digital Camera, Will the Camera Cry for Help?

EyeFiMemoryCard.jpgWell, it could. Thousands of digital cameras are lost each year on airplanes, in hotel rooms and at the hands of creepy thieves. With the new Eye-Fi memory card, you can program your camera to automatically send its photos and videos to an email address or certain photo sharing websites like Flickr and Facebook. The teenie memory card has a built-in wireless connection that automatically activates a transmission of data whenever you're passing within range of a specified wireless network. So to be clear, there's no guarantee that you'll reclaim photos from a stolen camera, but there's a chance. What's better is that while you're traveling, now you don't have to hunt down an Internet café or lug along a laptop to clear your memory card. You can pick up a 2GB Eye-Fi Card at Amazon for $99.99.

You have to be aware that the eye-fi card will only connect and upload photos when it is in reach of networks you've previously defined and the camera is left on. Chances that you'll hear your camera crying for help are unfortunately still very low...
