Although I’ve never had the pleasure of using one myself, I’m reliably assured that Eye-fi’s direct-upload cards are ace. That’s why I’m pleased to see a new range come out that will not only upload direct from your camera to your PC, but also to YouTube. Previous versions only worked with photographs.
The potential for these cards is wonderful, but also dangerous. Someone photographing in a restricted area could be running a Wi-Fi network nearby and despite having his or her camera confiscated, keep access to the pictures stored within. That’s good for citizen journalists, but very bad for security. I suspect it’ll only take one high-profile, governmental incident before these are banned.
