Golly, This Is Cool

I’d ordinarily linklog this, but it’s so cool I CAN’T CONTAIN IT IN A MERE SIDEBAR!

Eye-Fi Wireless Camera SD Memory:

Never scrounge around for a USB cable again! Eye-fi is a magical orange SD memory card that will not only store 2GB worth of pictures, it’ll upload them to your computer, and to Flickr, Facebook, Picasa (or 14 others) [including SmugMug -mph] wirelessly, invisibly, automatically!

This little guy looks like a normal 2GB memory card and works with nearly any camera that takes SD memory. There are no antennas, no protrusions, no subscription fees, and no cables.

Works with Macs, too.

It would be really fun to have something like this as part of a deliberate project, dialing the camera down to relatively modest capture settings and letting fly, Crapshoot-style.

If you visit that link, consider subscribing to PhotoJojo’s free newsletter while you’re there. I wrote Amit, one of the proprietors, to tell him his newsletter is one of the few I remain happy to see every time it lands in the inbox. They maintain a positive, pro-creativity buzz in the newsletter that almost always manages to restore my good feelings about picture-taking when it arrives after the latest Popular Photography, which usually manages to drive my inner censor to new heights of anxiety.

PhotoJojo is where I learned about the photo blocks project:
