Stop whingeing about how you used to take great photos w/your DSLR but are now mired in a morass of bad cameraphone photos - get a cheap point & shoot and an Eye-Fi card & you will have great photos again w/out the DSLR weight

There are countless geeky, nerdy, folks in late 2012 "whingeing" :-) about

  1. how they used to take great DSLR photos but  it was too heavy & inconvenient to post photos,
  2. so they switched to a cameraphone
  3. but are tired of its bad photos.

Simple solution:

  1. buy a $150 dollar point and shoot like the Canon Powershot A2400 which you can get for $70 (or a $200 Olympus E-PL1 or EPM-1 with the  Olympus bodycap lens for $59 if you want something even more awesome for $260 instead of $150 or less),
  2. a $99 Eye-Fi card.
  3. Carry the camera in your pocket at all times.
  4. Post photos from the Eye-Fi via your cameraphone's WIFI access point

This makes it convenient and quick like your cameraphone but gives you much better image quality that doesn't require filters of doom to make the photos "interesting"!

Finally! I've had an Eye-Fi card (bought in the USA for me by my brother in law) for over a year and use it with our point and shoot to upload kid photo to our private kid photo flickr account. Highly recommended!

Eye-Fi WiFi functionality should be built into every memory card

After using an Eye-Fi card for about 3 weeks, I have to say it's fantastic and highly recommended!

Observations:

  1. Shouldn't have to rely on a PC or Mac to configure it (although i can see why they do, it's the lazy/easy way, c'mon be creative and do it without a PC or Mac or Linux box!)
  2. The fact that none of the digicam or SLR manufacturers have this built-in (Nikon's Wifi on their point and shoots is inflexible and the WiFi transmitters on digital SLRs are overpriced and far too big) shows their analogue camera heritage. Connectivity is the most important part of digital cameras and WiFi is the easiest and most ubiquitous connectivity and should therefore be built in
  3. Eye-Fi should do RAW files and video files as well
  4. Can't wait for the Eye-Fi Explore, the geo version that uses Skyhook technology
  5. Please can we have an Eye-Fi version for Compact Flash as well as SD Cards? I don't want to have to buy SD to flash adapters
  6. I'm going to buy another Eye-Fi and a SD to CF adapter so I can use it in my Canon 20D digital SLR and upload photos no muss no fuss at public events with WiFi
  7. The fact that the Eye-Fi is *still* unavailable in Canada is unacceptable
