The world leader in all things involving flash memory, SanDisk, has added a few new flash cards to their South African line-up. The line-up includes the Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Card, Extreme Pro SDHC Card and the Ultra microSDHC Card.
SanDisk Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Card
The Eye-Fi provides an easier way in which to transfer files between your portable devices and your PC. Using your home wireless network, the card will transfer the latest photos, videos, and any other files you’ve setup. The Eye-Fi card is also capable of transferring files to your tablet and smartphone, by means of an Android and iOS app, although this isn’t always as easy.
Depending on the device the Eye-Fi card is also able to transfer directly to your PC, tablet or smartphone using the direct upload mode. Simply capture photos and video via your camera and the Eye-Fi card does the rest. The Eye-Fi contents also includes a USB adapter, which you can use whenever your Wi-Fi access is not available, or for the less technology-advanced users.
