Toshiba Flashair SD card + K5 = groundbreaking connectedness(for me)

k5+ Toshiba Flashair sd wifi card + FA43mm @f1.9 + Google plus photos app or Flickr app.

Here are two experimental shots with the above listed combination. Initially I was suspicious about how the Flashair would work, but it has been so easy to use, it could change how I use my camera altogether.

1. I shot these in Raw on my k5 and processed to jpeg (natural setting)

2. I uploaded the jpegs to my smartphone via the downloadable app. Very quick, very easy. Unlike Eyefi, you can choose which photos to download. The connection speed was very fast.

3. I uploaded to Google+, Flickr directly from my phone for sharing with family. The whole process took less than 2 minutes from Raw development to the cloud.

No Flu cards, no Eyefi compatibility worries.

My k5 is a fantastically "connected" camera now...I highly recommend this card to anyone with a smartphone and "older" digital camera.
