MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, Jun 24, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) –
Eyefi ( www.eyefi.com
), 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.”
