Eye-Fi updates roll out iPhoto integration on Mac, improve performance  
Wednesday, January 30, 2008 | by Rob Galbraith
The Eye-Fi wireless SD card's previously-announced integration with iPhoto on the Mac is now live: when configuring Eye-Fi Manager to upload photos from the card to a Mac, you have the option of choosing iPhoto rather than a particular folder. When set up this way, transmitted photos are automatically imported into iPhoto.

This is the main change in Eye-Fi Manager v1.2.5.0, released in the past few days, though an update notice indicates that both the Mac and Windows versions have been tweaked to make the application "more reliable, stable, compatible and secure." Select Check for Updates in the Eye-Fi Manager menu to download and install the new version.
 
The company has also released firmware update 1.0496, which is designed to improve the Eye-Fi card's performance when the network signal is weak, and improve compatibility with certain Kodak Easy Share cameras. The firmware update is available when logged into the Eye-Fi Manager web service.
 
The company has also announced that Nikon's D60 will detect when an Eye-Fi card has been inserted and automatically adjust camera power settings to keep itself awake and transmitting photos.
