After getting an Eye-Fi for Christmas, this week I am finally putting it to the test! What better way to utilize the card than to make a higher-end camera (DSLR, mirrorless, or bridge camera) easily compatible with Instagram. 🙂 Here are two links to get us started: Useful Photography Tip #19: Partner Eye-Fi Mobile With Instagram for Sharper, Funner Photoshttp://www.thephoblographer.com/2012/04/21/useful-photography-tip-19-partner-eye-fi-mobile-with-instagram-for-sharper-funner-photos/Instagram is an extremely fun app to use that promote social photo sharing and has a major emphasis on simplicity.

I just ordered a 39″ 4K display from Amazon and will be posting a full review once it arrives. Until then, here is the download full manual in PDF format: (dl link) I am very intrigued to see how this display performs when connected to a PC and used as a high-resolution monitor.
