Eye-Fi Connect X2 – Product Review & Giveaway!

Eye-Fi Card

I’m always taking pictures, either for fun or for the blog. But over the past year as the blog as grown, the daily picture taking, removing the card, uploading and repeating. It was part of my normal routine, but it would become a bit annoying.

I was thrilled when Eye-Fi sent me one of the 4GB + Wi-fi Connect X2 SD cards. Not only did it make it easier on me on a daily basis, it’s a great accessory for any photographer or someone who likes technology.

It’s small, yes. And other than the color difference at first glance it doesn’t look any different than other SD Cards. So what’s the big deal?

With the Eye-Fi Connect X2 is an SD card like no other. Once you set it up to recognize your home wi-fi service, it will automatically connect to your computer. You can simply take a picture, come home and set your camera down and watch your images upload to your computer.

Eye-Fi even backs them up online for you. You can access them for free for a short period. Or you can pay for an online membership and access the backups at any time. You can set it up to work with your tablet, computer or even smart phone.

I have noticed a couple things about the Eye-Fi, my camera doesn’t always have to be switched on for the card to talk to my computer. It does work a lot faster when the camera is switched on. Uploads work best when your battery has a full charge.

One of my favorite things about the Eye-Fi is that it automatically organizes any images on my computer by date. This is how I like to organize my images anyhow, and I can rename the files or folders later. I love how easy it was to set my the Eye-Fi card, and how much easier it get my pictures on my machine every day!

  1. It would be so helpful to have this product automatically load pictures on my pc’s wifi during the holidays. It would be handy for me to take holiday pictures and be able to do other stuff instead of having to upload all the pics myself–what a time saver it would be for me!

  2. I take a ton of school photos and other events. I have never heard of this. Thank you so much for giving me information on technology I knew nothing about.

  3. This is the coolest thing that I have seen in a long time. I work from home and taking photos is my job, this would make my life so much simpler! I would take pictures of my products and streamline my business.

  4. I love taking photos of my pets and places around my home. I live in the country so there’s always something beautiful to photograph. 🙂

  5. I would take pictures of my blog post stuff! This way I could actually use the DSLR instead of my phone because it would be so much easier to get to the pictures.

  6. I would take pictures of my pets and Grandkids. Or even better I would give this to my Mom who is the picture taker in my family. The Grandkids call her, Grandma Pictures.

  7. well all of the Christmas activies for this year at Church and home–then all the kids and then my dogs

  8. I would take more photos of myself that appear as though they were taken by someone else. I started doing that years ago and built up a nice, yet small catalog of self photos. I haven’t done that in awhile and miss it. Doing so also shows me how I change in looks over time. 🙂
