Eye-Fi Explore

Although many DSLRs use CompactFlash memory cards, some prosumer models (like the Nikon D80 or the Canon PowerShots) use SD or SDHC for storage. With the Eye-Fi Explore Wireless SD card, you can return from your travels, put your camera on your desk, turn it on, and watch your photos be instantly uploaded onto your computer and even your favorite photo website, like Picasa, SmugMug, or Flickr. No fussing with cords and card readers. The 2GB Secure Digital memory card automatically transmits images from camera to computer using your home wireless network or thousands of Wi-Fi hot spots (no computer needed at hot spots).

The card also "geotags" your photos, marking them with data on the location where they were taken, which you can upload to sites like Flickr and Google Earth and view there. It retails for $109.99 at Eye-Fi (877-873-9334), but you'll find it at and for $105.

Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
