Oh No…

I finished the last episode of Portlandia season 2 last night. Now what am I going to watch?!

Eye-Fi

I recently bought an 8GB Eye-Fi Mobi card to use in my cameras. It makes it so easy to transfer images (.jpg) from my camera to my phone. In fact, it is set up to automatically copy the photos as soon as they are captured! The card is basically an SD card with wi-fi built-in. You pair that card to the Eye-Fi app on your phone. It’s that easy!

Why do I need to transfer photos to my phone? For sharing instantly of course! I had used a system where I would connect my camera to my phone via USB cable and while it worked fine, it meant I had to have the cable with me. I keep that cable in my camera bag, but I often just grab my camera, and not whole bag. With the Eye-Fi, I don’t have to worry about it. It’s such a neat system. I recommend the Eye-Fi Mobi to anyone who wants to use their big camera to post to Instagram. Like me!

New Glasses

So I finally got some new glasses! My previous pair were old and I needed a new prescription. Well, the world is super-sharp again! I’m still getting used to it but so far it is great. I have noticed that the ground feels a lot closer to me now. When I am driving, it feels like I am six inches off the ground. It’s a little weird walking along and then looking down at the ground to walk up stairs or over a crack in the sidewalk. Also, there’s a bit of a keystone effect &ndash: rectangular things (like computer monitors) look wider at the top than the bottom. I’m sure my brain will compensate for that in time, but it is really odd!

I spent a couple hundred on the frames but they are so comfy and light. My previous pair were bought for maybe $50 in Japan, and they were really beat up. These new ones are a great change, although they look very similar.
