Toshiba’s FlashAir SDHC memory card with embedded wireless LAN can transfer back and forth over thin air
We really like technology that makes things easier and frees us from arduous tasks. There is something extremely frustrating, after a hard day of shooting, to have to take your SD card out of the camera and plug it into your computer to upload your pictures, or god forbid fishing out a USB cable for your camera. That’s why we love the whole concept of Eye-Fi‘s wireless SD cards, which send photos directly from your camera over the air to your computer or Wi-Fi enabled devices.
Toshiba thought, well what happens if you actually want to send pictures or other files the other way around, and that’s how the creation of their FlashAir SDHC card came about. As Toshiba envisions it, this will enable two-way transfers between cards, and the devices hosting them, using embedded wireless LAN technology for tasks such as sharing photos between two cameras or pulling photos to your camera from photo sharing sites. Toshiba is also claiming,
lower power consumption than other cards with similar functions.
