If you shoot a lot out in the field, and want peace of mind that your images are constantly being backed up, then an Eye-Fi card could be your answer. Here, find out why an Eye-Fi card could be of use with your Olympus camera.
What is an Eye-Fi Card?
Eye-Fi cards are SD cards that have Wi-Fi built in, enabling you to back up your photos as you shoot them to a destination of your choice, for example, a home computer or tablet. You can connect directly to the device via Direct Mode, or over an authorized Wi-Fi network. It is also possible to save your images to the cloud, or other internet based storage facility.
Where can I upload from?
You can upload photos from anywhere, as the Eye-Fi card can connect directly to your device for instantaneous transfer.
What kind of files can I transfer?
Eye-Fi cards can transfer even the highest resolution photos, including RAW images. They can also transfer videos.
Eye-Fi cards are a great idea if you're planning on shooting a lot of photos, as they will automatically free up space on the memory card as your files are safely backed up.
Eye-Fi cards will work with most modern Olympus cameras. You can check specific compatibility on the Eye-Fi website.
