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".
