Eyefi mobile apps and cloud service gives photographers freedom to use multiple cameras and enjoy one unified, organized photo library available anytime, anywhere.
 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., November 20, 2014 — Eyefi (www.eyefi.com), the global leader in connecting digital cameras across devices and to the Internet, today announced it would make Eyefi Cloud available without the need for Eyefi Mobi WiFi SD card enabling photographers to use their smartphone or WiFi enabled camera to experience the benefits of a unified, organized library anytime, anywhere.
 
With Eyefi apps and cloud service, photographers will enjoy the benefits of instant organization, editing and sharing as soon as they take a photo and know that all their photos, regardless of which camera they used to take them, will be organized in a unified library available anytime, anywhere. Eyefi Cloud syncs the entire photo library to all devices so photographers can enjoy a simple, elegant and visually engaging photo library — always organized, always up-to-date on any device.
 
"Our research shows that photographers use multiple cameras and devices to take photos and that well over 200 billion photos will be taken next year," said Alan Bullock of InfoTrends. "Photographers and consumers alike are turning to apps and services that organize their burgeoning photo collections and make them accessible on the devices they use daily."
 
"Photographers want to focus on their craft rather than be mired in the details of photo management," said Matt DiMaria, CEO of Eyefi. "By making Eyefi Cloud available to anyone, photographers have the freedom to select the camera that's right for the moment and still enjoy a unified library in sync on all their favorite devices — all by simply clicking the shutter."
 
Eyefi provides a companion to photographers who use multiple devices and cameras including smartphones and WiFi cameras. Eyefi gives photographers the flexibility to choose the right camera to capture the perfect shot while at the same time eliminating the hassles of manual merging, e-mailing and endless searching. Photographers can pick up a smartphone to snap a photo of dinner with friends and it's automatically organized and synced through Eyefi Cloud. Additionally, photographers have the flexibility to add an Eyefi Mobi WiFi SD card to their digital camera to take fast action, low light shots and view those photos right along side the ones taken with the smartphone. As soon as the photo is taken, Eyefi Cloud syncs the entire photo library to your smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop and makes original resolution photos safe and secure.
 
Other features include:
 
  • Enhance and organize on the spot: Preview all your photos, make adjustments — crop, rotate, or organize them with tags or create albums using your phone, computer or tablet.
  • Learn and improve: See what camera settings (EXIF visualization) were used so you're able to recreate the perfect picture or make adjustments.
  • Enjoy every shot, everywhere: Photos sync to other devices automatically for instant access whenever and wherever you are, even offline.
Photographers can download the Eyefi Mobi app available for iOS, Android and Kindle devices to organize, edit and share the photos on their mobile device. Users can sign up for Eyefi Cloud within the Eyefi Mobi app to sync those photos to their favorite devices. Eyefi Cloud includes a free 30 day membership. Annual memberships are available for $49.99/year and include support for unlimited photo syncing and storage.

Photo hobbyists can now use Eyefi Cloud on IFTTT for automating how and where photos are published and shared.
 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., August 26, 2014 — Eyefi, the global leader in connecting digital cameras across devices and to the Internet, today announced an official integration with IFTTT (short for If This Then That). Photo hobbyists now have a fast and simple way to take photos with their digital camera, wirelessly transfer and automatically sync them to Eyefi Cloud, and trigger customized and automated actions in IFTTT that simplify their workflow. Photo hobbyists can also now connect their cameras to over 125 Channels to quickly and easily trigger actions for how and where their photos are published and shared, how they are stored and how they integrate with other applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Evernote.
 
"As a photographer, I want to spend time behind the lens taking pictures, not in the office mired in the details of photo management," said Sergey Sus, recently named a Top Socially Influential Photographer. "Eyefi Cloud integration with IFTTT automates many of the manual tasks involved with organizing and posting photos to multiple social networks so I can share instantly and organize them the way I want without being burdened with multiple steps."
 
IFTTT enables anyone to create powerful connections with one simple statement: if this then that. Now Eyefi Cloud members can access the Eyefi Channel on IFTTT and create custom "Eyefi Recipes" that integrate with more than 125 other Channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Flickr and Dropbox. Custom recipes help hobbyists save time by automating tasks that would otherwise be manual. For example, an Eyefi Recipe can be created so that if a photo in Eyefi Cloud is tagged "social," then it will automatically be posted to Twitter, Facebook or other networks, rather than having to individually post each photo. This gives photographers of all skill levels the ability to share pictures the moment they are captured, across the major social networks. In addition Eyefi Recipes can be created to send favorite pictures from social networks to a personal photo library. For example, if a photo on Instagram is tagged #myfavorite then it will automatically be uploaded to Eyefi Cloud.
 
"We are constantly improving digital camera connectivity, and our integration with IFTTT supports that," said Sam Hui, Vice President Products at Eyefi. "Eyefi Cloud integration with IFTTT eliminates manual tasks, enabling digital cameras to directly connect to the Internet and social networking applications with ease."
 
Earlier this year, Eyefi announced Eyefi Cloud, a private photo-centric cloud service that makes newly captured photos instantly available on a smartphone, tablet, PC or smart TV. Eyefi Cloud is designed for photo enthusiasts who require the superior image quality provided by digital cameras but are frustrated with the time-consuming processes required to enjoy those photos on multiple devices. Eyefi Cloud, along with the Eyefi Mobi wireless SD card and Eyefi Mobi apps, allows every picture taken to be instantly organized and accessible, anytime anywhere—to enjoy, curate and share securely and privately.

Seamlessly transfer, organize, sync and share photos from smartphones, tablets and PC's anytime, anywhere
 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 24, 2014 — Eyefi , the global leader in digital camera connectivity, today announced that more than 300 digital camera models now include Eyefi Connected functionality. In achieving this milestone Eyefi Connected is by far the most widely adopted technology for connecting digital cameras to a wireless SD card, providing customers with the easiest and most capable connectivity solution on the market.
 
Eyefi Connected firmware is embedded into cameras enabling them to instantly detect when an Eyefi SD card is inserted. This functionality allows the photographer to control the wireless features using the in-camera menu options to seamlessly transfer pictures to their smartphone, tablet or PC, wirelessly. Eyefi Connected cameras also include features such as the ability to power toggle the WiFi radio, select when photos transfer and advanced power management to maximize battery life.
 
Eyefi Connected has been adopted by virtually every digital camera manufacturer, including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic, Casio, Ricoh, Pentax, JVC, Olympus and Panasonic – representing nearly 100 percent of all digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras sold in 2014.
 
"Our research shows that even with the explosive growth in mobile photography, many consumers still rely on digital cameras for important picture-taking occasions and special events," said Alan Bullock, associate director of connected imaging trends at InfoTrends. "Eyefi brings WiFi connectivity to nearly any digital camera and with Eyefi Connected technology built-in to most cameras, Internet connectivity is a seamless part of the camera's function."
 
This achievement coincides with the one year anniversary of Eyefi Mobi – the company's flagship product offering. In April, the company launched Eyefi Cloud, making Eyefi Mobi the world's first WiFi SD card to automatically transfer photos from the camera to the cloud, making every picture instantly accessible, anytime, anywhere—to enjoy, curate and share securely and privately.
 
"Eyefi Connected is one of the most important benefits we offer our camera partners and consumers," said Matt DiMaria, CEO of Eyefi. "When combined with Eyefi Mobi and Eyefi Cloud, photographers can enjoy the full power and quality of their digital cameras with the convenience of their smartphone, tablet or smart TV".
