My first Instgram photo was full of filters -- that was part of the fun originally -- and left a whole lot to be desired, at least from my perspective these days. I've become a bit of a photo snob -- that's not to say my pictures are always perfectly focused or have the best lighting (sometimes it's more important to capture that moment or that sweet smile), but I do try my best to make them as clear and light and comparable to the pictures I would be taking with my dSLR.
Believe me when I say I wish I could tote my dSLR around everywhere with me, but often times I find myself juggling between taking my pictures with my phone, which allows me to share instantly with Keith, family, friends or on social media -- but I've always wished I could have the same high quality photos on there too. I can't juggle both regularly because that leaves zero time to actually be IN the precious moments I want to capture so badly.
I was SO excited to hear about the Eyefi Mobi memory card because it lets you do both! With a simple little Eyefi Mobi memory card inserted into my camera I can instantly upload the beautiful high-quality, bright, clear photos complete with depth of field to my phone and then send them every which way! No more waiting to get home -- which I never do... takes too much time.
The Eyefi Mobi comes with easy to follow directions for set up, and directions to help you get started. You pretty much just put the memory card in your camera, download the app and start playing! Eyefi Mobi sends pictures from your DSLR or point and shoot camera to your phone, tablet or desktop as soon as you take them so you can kiss the cords goodbye!
Eyefi Mobi works with Eyefi Cloud to sync every picture you take to every device you own. Reminisce about your holiday on your smart TV or critique your last photo shoot on your desktop display.
I keep the Eye-Fi app right there in the same folder as Instagram app. Like my cracked screen? Luckily it still works like this. Ha!
You can see such a difference between the photos uploaded from my dSLR using the Eyefi Mobi and the ones taken right from my iPhone! If you want to see some examples for yourself check out this, this and this!
Honestly, the only downside I've found is that as it loads the photos to your phone from your camera you have to wait for it to load alllll of them. I usually take quite a few takes of each shot I try to get, so it can take a while for the camera to transfer them all wirelessly and for me to get the one I want. I've found the best thing is to extend the "awake" time on your camera while loading the pictures, which will help them load even faster and then once it's done switch it back because it will drain your battery.
What apps or tricks do you use to get the perfect pretty picture?
