Eye-Fi, the Wi-Fi SD card, launches a 16GB version

Wirelessly capable phones are crushing the camera market. The ability to send your images to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and even your computer without connecting cables is extremely convenient. So much so, that most users are ditching their point and shoot cameras for smart phones.

What about SLR users? There is an SD card that adds this feature to your camera. And as of today, Eye-Fi has released a new 16GB model of their wireless SD card.

Cameras have more megapixels, and pictures and videos are more demanding in terms of size. Moving to a 16GB, Class 10 card keeps up with these trends and delivers what our customers have been asking for,“ said Yuval Koren, CEO and co-founder of Eye-Fi. ”Customers already know and love our Eye-Fi cards for instant wireless uploads, so the added space and faster speeds are a great addition, especially with the highest-volume photo days coming up.

It’s been hard to use Eye-Fi in an SLR up to this point. The maximum 8GB of storage is relatively low.

The new 16GB Eye-Fi Pro comes with WPS Geotagging and Eye-Fi View cloud service. You should be able to pre-order one from Amazon soon for $100. An international launch will follow shortly.

With the launch of the new Eye-Fi Pro X2 16GB card, the previous Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB and the Eye-Fi Mobile X2 8GB will be reduced from $99.99 to $79.99 and $79.99 to $59.99, respectively, starting this month. For more information, visit www.eye.fi.
