Eyefi Brings Cloud Solution to Photography
Eyefi Cloud has just been unveiled to the public by Eyefi, the international leader in digital camera connectivity. Eyefi Cloud is a private, cloud service dedicated to photos that will allow users to instantly upload their freshly shot pictures to each of their devices.
It’s impossible to deny that digital cameras take superior quality photographs, but only 46% of cameras that’ll ship out in 2014 will have Internet connectivity abilities, which means users will not only have to wait to share their devices, but also go through the hassle of uploading them as well. The new Eyefi Cloud service is a solution for these frustrated photographers who want the best of both worlds–mobile convenience and camera quality. Eyefi Cloud, coupled with Eyefi Mobi apps and the Eyefi Mobi wireless SD card allow photographers to instantly access their pictures from anywhere at anytime to enjoy, edit, and share securely.
“Photo lovers know that life’s most important moments should be captured using a digital camera but it’s difficult to access those shots until long after the images are taken,” said Eyefi’s CEO Matt DiMaria. “Eyefi Cloud makes those highest-quality shots available within seconds of them being captured, so photographers can immediately enjoy quality images on the beautiful displays of their smartphone, tablet, PC or smart TV.”
The new cloud service will let users transfer, organize, sync and share photos. It allows camera to function wirelessly, giving users the ability to send photos to whichever of their devices–including other cameras–that they choose. Users can also tag and sort their pictures, making them easier to find amongst their hundreds of other images. Eyefi Cloud also syncronizes the photos on each device, to ensure that users have the latest versions of their pictures at all times.
“The ability to instantly share photos online with nearly unlimited storage and global accessibility is an exciting new development, but what is missing from so many of these new services is an easy way to separate quality from quantity,” says Fred Tilner, Manager and Marketing Director of 42nd Street Photo, a popular photography store in New York City. “We have made it easy to save and shoot, but it might nice to see more people aim first.”
In the Internet-saturated world of today, cloud solutions were only a logical solution, and it was only a matter of time before someone brought cloud Internet capabilities to the world of photography.
