Eye-Fi now lets users upload to FTP sites
Eye-Fi has recently announced its Share Video, Explore Video and Pro memory cards are now capable of uploading directly to personal or corporate FTP sites. While only JPEG photos and videos can be uploaded, it supports both regular FTP and secure FTPS protocols. The feature should be especially useful to working photographers and livebloggers, who can upload photos before their deadlines to a company's FTP site.
Quality and flexibility is somewhat limited as FTP-bound photos are confined to JPEG where the Pro models can upload RAW elsewhere. However, users were previously only able to upload photos and videos from Eye-Fi's cards to photo sharing sites such as Flickr, Facebook and 18 others; the new feature does support videos, however.
Eye-Fi's Share Video, Explore Video and Pro memory cards are priced at $80, $100 and $150, respectively.
