Eyefi has announced the latest addition to its family of Wi-Fi-enabled SD cards. The Eyefi claims that its 32GB Mobi Pro is “the most powerful WiFi SD card ever” and will be a welcome addition to the arsenal of professional photographers everywhere. The Mobi Pro supports Selective Transfer, which allows users to tag individual images for syncing instead of transferring every photo stored on the card. However, this functionality is a bit cumbersome to use as each photo that you do want to sync has be marked as write-protected from the camera. The Mobi Pro also supports the wireless transfer of RAW... Read more...
As far as promising wireless technologies go, few have rivaled Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. But honestly, TransferJet has the potential to. It's a sophisticated communications platform with all of the right bells and whistles, but it has yet to gain the kind of mainstream attention and adoption necessary to make it a household name. But at CES 2013, Toshiba is hoping to do its part in changing that. The company has announced that it will showcase a reference display of an SDHC memory card with TransferJet -- described as "close proximity wireless transfer technology" -- at the show. The SDHC memory card... Read more...
Eye-Fi ushered in the idea that Wi-Fi could indeed be embedded into a consumer flash memory card, and now Toshiba is introducing a wireless LAN embedded SD card of its own. It's a FlashAir card, which is an SDHC card with a WLAN chip + antenna inside. Also, for a limited time, Olympus will offer the FlashAir for free through a mail-in rebate when purchasing select Olympus Cameras. The FlashAir is fully compliant with SD Association Memory card standards and is offered with 8GB of storage. As you might imagine, data stored on the FlashAir can be read and transferred by using standard WLAN communication.... Read more...

Toshiba is launching a new line of SDXC and SDHC memory cards under the “Exceria” moniker that are designed to be the best in the business. The name, in fact, is a spin on the words “excellence” and “ experience”; in other words, Toshiba is stating that it has the track record and chops to deliver a top of the line solution with these new cards. Compliant with the UHS-I2 standard, the cards should hit UHS and SD speed classes of 15 and 106 and will come in three series: Type 1, Type 2, and Type HD. Type 1 cards will have maximum read/write speeds of 95MB/s and... Read more...
Eye-Fi really started something, huh? While SD cards were fine just holding memories and excess files for years, soon that became "not good enough." Eye-Fi added a wireless piece to the puzzle, enabling these cards to wirelessly send photos and such from the camera to the cloud/PC/etc. And now Toshiba's taking it one step further. The company recently announced FlashAir, an SDHC memory card that includes a wireless LAN function. We're told that the company will begin to ship samples of the card in 8GB capacities starting this November, with "volume production" slated for February 2012. It's estimated... Read more...
Hearing that Flip's camcorder line was being shut down today by Cisco was quite the shock. But when you look at a company like Eye-Fi, one has to wonder what makes one niche startup more viable than the other. Eye-Fi has been an underground success story, never quite hitting the mainstream, but obviously popular enough amongst the tech junkies to keep a good thing going. The company's new Mobile X2 card is an 8GB Secure Digital card that allows for instant uploads anywhere by wirelessly connecting the camera to a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. The new feature is Direct Mode, which... Read more...
When you're looking at Secure Digital cards, there's no question that you have loads of options. Tons of choices. Everywhere you look, there's another SD card. But when it comes to high-speed cards, your options get a bit more limited. Delkin's Elite 633 is one of those speedsters, claiming to be the fastest SDHC card on Planet Earth. According to the specifications sheet, it can write at up to 80MBps and read at up to 95MBps. These obviously use the new UHS (Ultra High Speed) bus-interface, and it's fully compatible with all SDHC and SDXC host devices. Of course, that kind of speed will cost you.... Read more...
Taking aim at serious photography buffs and enthusiasts who "need to shoot like the pros," SanDisk today introduced its new Extreme Pro SDHC UHS-I card. What is UHS-I, you ask? For those of you not savvy to the newly released SD 3.0 specification, that's the new Ultra High Speed technology, and with it, SanDisk says its card can achieve up to 45MB/s read and write speeds. "SanDisk has a long history of developing fast, highly reliable cards for photography enthusiasts and professionals," said Susan Park, director, retail product marketing, SanDisk. "Our new SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC card lets consumers... Read more...
Bigger, faster, stronger. It applies to a lot of things, include storage formats. Hardcore power users are always demanding more from their media, and the SD Association understands that they have to keep up for fear of being lapped by CompactFlash, xD or any of the other memory card formats. The association has just introduced a new speed lane for the SD format to follow, but you won't hardly be able to tell. Those looking to spot the new speed will need to look up; there's a new row of pins which will enable faster transfers, but the old row of pins ensures backwards compatibility. The new specification... Read more...
Sony has made a name for themselves by relying a lot on proprietary formats. ATRAC and MS Pro are just a couple that Sony has created over the years, and many consumers have expressed dissatisfaction with the move. But in more recent years, even Sony has bowed to pressure and relied more heavily on industry standards. The company's Cyber-shot, Handycam and NEX camera lines all support SD/SDHC, and now Sony will be producing their own line of Secure Digital cards for those cameras and more. The new Essential Series and value-added Experience Series are joined by the flagship Expert Series of cards,... Read more...
SDHC UHS-I cards were announced a few months ago, with the UHS-I designation meant to showcase enhanced speeds over traditional Secure Digital cards. These cards are designed for more professional applications, such as broadcast television or recording real-time HD footage. But announcing a specification and announcing a shipping product that takes advantage are two very different things, and now Toshiba is proud to announce that they're shipping the world's fastest SDHC memory card. The biggest news here is that we're talking about SDHC, not SDXC. SDHC is more widely accepted in products (particularly... Read more...
It's sort of amazing that in 2010, we still have just one major choice when it comes to Wi-Fi enabled SD/SDHC cards. Evidently Eye-Fi has the market locked down, but considering the glowing reviews that people generally give these cards, we guess there's little room to grumble. Today, the company is catering to one specific market in order to launch their newest card, and yes, we're talking about the Apple crowd. With Apple removing the ExpressCard slot from many of their machines and instead placing an SD card slot there, this makes perfect sense. But if you're a PC fanatic, and you want this... Read more...
Eye-Fi took a simple concept and made it a reality, simultaneously solving an issue that many folks had: how do I upload images straight to the Web without needing to upload pics first to a PC? The company has stood alone in the industry over the past couple of years, and this week at CTIA they're announcing their newest card to send images directly to the Internet when a Wi-Fi hotstop is in range. The new Eye-Fi Pro 2 is twice as fast as previous models, and the company also has more than doubled their hotspot upload locations. Now, users of the Hotspot Access feature can upload photos and videos... Read more...
