For those who tag, blog or share images in real-time; or if you need to upload anywhere, the Eye-Fi Explore Wireless Secure Digital (SD) Card is the choice for you. Like other Eye-Fi Cards, the Explore wirelessly connects to your home Wi-Fi network and uploads your pictures automatically. But the Eye-Fi Explore doesn't stop there - users can also automatically add geographic location labels to your photos and allows you to upload from more than 10,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across the nation. Plus, your memories will be easier to search and more fun to share with geo-tags and you'll be able to upload them on the go.
The Eye-Fi Explore SD Card uses Static WEP 40/104/128, WPA-PSK & WPA2-PSK Wi-Fi Security to ensure the secure transfer of your pictures, and provides a transmission range of up to 90 feet outdoors and 45 feet indoors. Plus it uses an advanced power management system to optimize the use of your camera's power and keep battery depletion to a minimum.
- With Geotagging, your photos will be automatically labeled, or tagged, to show where they were taken. Tags make searching for photos easier and make sharing them more meaningful, but it has been a time-consuming and manual process. With Eye-Fi's Geotagging Service, you won't have to spend your time entering the info. It's done for you when you upload your photo. Using its built-in Wi-Fi, the Eye-Fi Card locates any surrounding Wi-Fi networks as you take pictures. Then, the Eye-Fi Service translates that data into geograhic location and adds the information to each picture (in the EXIF data) as it is delivered to the web or your computer. It's as easy as that. You snap the shot and the photo shows up labeled with the city and state in which it was taken.
- Hotspot Access
- With Hotspot Access, you'll be able to upload from more than 10,000 Wayport Wi-Fi hotspots across the US just as easily as at home. You don't need to have your laptop with you or even have an account with the hotspot provider. Your photos will be delivered to your photo-sharing website and to your computer, even if it's thousands of miles away. To make this possible and easy, Eye-Fi has worked directly with hotspot provider Wayport - which offers Wi-Fi access at thousands of locations, including most McDonald's restaurants, major hotels, airports, and other locales. Eye-Fi Explore includes 1 year of Wayport Hotspot Access, and users will be able to renew Hotspot Access for $19 per year after the first year.
- With WebShare, your photos can be automatically uploaded to your favorite photo sharing, printing, blogging or social networking website. Choose from among more than 20 of the most popular websites and some up-and-comers too. You can upload images privately and control if and when they are viewable by others. Many sites even let you edit your photo albums online. And, you can change your preferred upload site at any time.
- Eye-Fi Manager
- Each Eye-Fi Card comes complete with the Eye-Fi Manager Software. When you purchase your Eye-Fi Card, simply insert the Card and the Eye-Fi Card reader into your Mac or PC to install the Manager Software. There is no CD or software download required since everything you need to get started is right on your Eye-Fi Card. Designed for simple installation and set-up, the Eye-Fi Manager Software consist of two parts: a small application that runs on your computer and a web-based application that you access via your internet browser. After your initial installation, the Eye-Fi Manager web application will be launched, and is your tool for setting up and managing your photo upload experience.
