Eye-Fi has announced its new, next generation 8GB Eye-Fi Pro X2 memory card (CES Innovations 2010 Honoree), which powered by Eye-Fi’s proprietary X2 engine that features an exclusively designed chip and Wi-Fi 802.11n radio, allowing users to wirelessly upload JPEG, RAW images and videos from cameras to computers as well as popular online photo and video sharing sites, including Flickr, Facebook, Picasa, MobileMe and YouTube.
In addition, Eye-Fi Pro X2 incorporates new Endless Memory mode that automatically deletes the safely-delivered old photos to make space available on the memory card.
According to Eye-Fi, “In Endless Memory mode users can choose to have Eye-Fi automatically make space available on their Eye-Fi Pro X2. Using the card’s ability to communicate with the Eye-Fi Service, it receives confirmation whenever photos and videos are safely delivered to the user’s computer and/or online sharing site. When the card reaches the user’s pre-determined amount of space used, it will remove files that have been safely uploaded, beginning with the oldest – even when the card is not connected to the network. If files have not yet been uploaded, the Pro X2 will not remove them. This option can be set up in Eye-Fi Center.”
