Eye-Fi Rolls Out ‘Direct Mode’ Camera to Smartphone / Tablet Wireless Transfer

If you’re an owner of a Eye-Fi X2 camera memory card (or a prospective buyer), you’ll pleased to learn that your Eye-Fi card can now push photo and video content directly to your iPhone, iPad or Android device. All you need to do is install Eye-Fi’s app to your smartphone or tablet and the Eye-Fi X2 card will create its own Wi-Fi network and transfer images instantly. Note this is in addition to Eye-Fi cards being able to optionally sync with Eye-Fi’s online cloud, with Eye-Fi’s partner services, and your home PCs. Personally, I think direct mode is a killer addition for anyone who prefers taking photos with a high-quality point-and-shoot or DSLR camera over their smartphone or tablet’s blurrycam.
