Use of the technology requires a brief initial installation of Eye-Fi Manager software on your PC and then the card is ready to wirelessly download copies of any photos as soon as the Shoot-n-Sync comes within range of your home computer’s wireless network.

Compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems, the 2GB Lexar Shoot-n-Sync Wi-Fi memory card will be available for purchase in October 2008.
