Yesterday Nikon let the cat out of the bag regarding their D90 DSLR, and in addition to a slick new pseudo-HD recording function and a host of other features, the new camera also plays particularly well with the Eye-Fi wireless SD cards thanks to a collaboration between the two companies.
While Eye-Fi cards work seamlessly with conventional SD-compatible digital cameras, the Eye-Fi Connected Nikon D90 gives users an improved out-of- box experience and more control of wireless capabilities. The digital camera will detect when an Eye-Fi card is inserted and manage its power settings to ensure that photos upload effortlessly for sharing and storing. In addition, the Nikon D90 will include an Eye-Fi menu that allows users to turn the wireless function on or off, giving the user more freedom to customize how and when they want to use the Eye-Fi card. For example, if a user is in a hospital or on an airplane, or anywhere else where wireless connectivity is not allowed, the user may disable the wireless function through the Eye-Fi menu.
The Eye-Fi Home, Share and Explore SD cards each come with 2GB of storage and varying levels of wireless functionality and range in price from $79.99 up to $129.99.
