Cut The Cord: Digital Pics Now So Much Easier
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — You no longer need a cord to post the digital pictures from your camera online.
New digital cameras are being made with Wi-Fi built right in. If you don’t want to pay for a new camera, there’s a less expensive option.
One example is Samsung’s new SH-100 Wi-Fi digital camera. It lets you post pictures to Facebook or email the photos right from the camera. It retails for $199.
There are also Wi-Fi cards available that will upgrade digital cameras. Eye-Fi makes a 4GB card that retails for $49.99.
Another new tech option helps you put those old home movies sitting in a box to good use.
Best Buy has a new service that will digitally convert your videos. A wide range of formats that include VHS, film, and Hi-8 can be converted through iMemories, which retails for $49.99. The cost covers the conversion of two tapes. Additional tapes will cost $19.99.
After iMemories receives the tapes, you can choose which parts of the video to keep and which to discard online before the video is put on a DVD. From start to finish the process can take 2-3 weeks.
