    Any future for digital camera WiFi SD cards?


    A few years ago, there was hope for SD cards that could be used to transfer digicam images as they were taken to a smartphone app or a desktop computer.

    More recently, that hope has faded. Eyefi seems to have gone out of business, and the company that purchased them, which used the Keenai brand name, has shut down their online service and encouraged people to use Toshiba FlashAir, with no further support for Eyefi.

    So, what next? Will any company offer universally available WiFi SD cards for digital cameras, or can the concept be written off as a failed idea?

    Most camera now have WiFi and NFC along with apps to transfer files or operate it from phone so the cards would only be of use to old cameras

    Some have hacked those cards to be Linux Servers. They are basically a computer on a card. Digging into Wifi SD Cards | Geek IT Guide Exploring the Transcend Wifi-SD card | James Os Blog
