Eye-Fi, the makers of the first wireless memory cards on the market, has announced that you no longer have to wait to get those party videos onto Facebook, you can just do it directly from your camera.
The Eye-Fi memory cards are handy little memory cards that allow you to offload pictures and videos from your camera via Wi-Fi without ever having to plug your device into the computer. While the cards have already been able to upload your content to over 25 video and photo sharing sites, there was a glaring gap in the services it supported: Facebook.
According to a recent study by the Consumer Electronics Association – 2009 report Digital Imaging: A Focus on Sharing – more than half of the consumers surveyed said they shared their digital content on Facebook. Â If the popular social network isn’t your site of choice for uploading, you can still upload to the other sites the card supports, and then the Eye-Fi will post a message on your Facebook Newsfeed to alert your friends of where they need to go to see your fresh uploads.
â€œWe make sharing videos with friends and family as easy as possible, so memories are fresh and relevant when they hit the Web,â€ said Jef Holove, CEO of Eye-Fi. â€œFacebook is clearly a favorite site to share videos and weâ€™ve made it effortless to do so, just in time for Halloween, one of our usersâ€™ most popular memory sharing holidays.â€
In celebration of the new feature, and with Halloween upon us, Eye-Fi has launched a Halloween image contest on Facebook that will your friends and other users to vote on the best images entered into the contest. Â The details are as follows:
- Grand Prize -Â Two winners will get one (1) Casio EX-S12 and one (1) Share Video card each.
