Wish Your Camera Was Wi-Fi Ready?

I know it makes me a geek, but I get excited about new technology, and in today's world things are moving at a very rapid pace, so I get excited a lot!

I don't know about you, but I send pictures from my phone all the time.  I post photos to the various social networking sites I'm active on, I send pics to family and friends for a laugh, and I often post pictures and information about a new listing before I've even left the listing appointment, giving my new clients IMMEDIATE marketing exposure. 

But I've often pondered how cool it would be to upload higher-res photos from my Nikon D70.  Well, it looks like the technology I've been waiting on is finally beginning to hit the mainstream.  An article I read earlier today on MyTechOpinion.com highlighted the Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Card, which can turn any camera with an SD slot into a wi-fi camera!

The writer of the article gives some great examples of how we, as Realtors, could us this technology to our advantage.  The possibilities are endless.

Now I'm just waiting for a card I can plug into my camera that will allow it to communicate via Bluetooth through my iPhone's wireless data signal.  Bring on the technology!

I wish you were located closer to me. 

I'd invite you over for lunch and you could show me how to do that, e-mail photos.

I need a new phone.

And a magnifying glass.

Ryan, that is pretty amazing.  Technology is moving at the speed of sound (well almost).  I love having a camera with me all the time with my phone.

I am always looking forward to what new technology will enhance our real estate careers next.  It seems like things are changing so quickly, if you do not keep up, you will be left in the dust.

Ryan - pretty cool stuff, for sure. It gets pretty difficult to keep up with it all, find time to research it, and, oh, the money to buy it all. LOL

Paul - RSS feeds have helped me keep up with a lot these days :)

Lenn - It won't be long and your glasses will probably take and email the pics for you... how cool would that be?

Laura - Air cards in the laptop are a wonderful thing. I never have to look for wireless hotspots!

Marchel - Isn't it great? I share a lot of cool local stuff on my blog, etc thanks to my iPhone.

Gene - The tiny size of this thing is one of the things that amazed me too. I just don't see how they do it!

Troy - You nailed it. Keeping up is tough, but it's a necessity these days!
