What I did this weekend - photos on or of the pb
Well, on occasion we've had a photo shoot with the pb.
While I've done nothing very exciting, what triggered the thread this time was that yesterday I finally decided to see if I could get my eye-fi sd card in my Canon S95 to talk with my pb when I'm not sitting at a router. No success yesterday as I strolled away from my house watching the wifi-meter on my pb fade to complete gray and finally "not connected."
But I came home examined various parameters and settings. It was working from home via my router but I wanted the full-meal as that's what I paid for a few months ago. I did not trust it on my recent trip to Europe since I was afraid something might foul up camera/pb or both or my pictures.
So, I just, again, strolled down the block till my home wifi was gone and a slew of neighbors' wifi's showed up but so did my eye-fi card. But low and behold it wanted a damn password. What the h3ll was it. Trusty bb 9930 with Datavault, I pulled it out of my pocket juggling pb and camera and case. Enter datavault's password and scroll to eye-fi. Oh, good, a variety of pass phrases. CASE Matters! The wifi-logo on the camera started throbbing. YES!
Low and behold the pictures transferred from camera to pb (using the Android eye-fi app). Of course, the battery was quickly depleting. You will note that the Wifi-symbol is grayed out so I was not connected to my router. In the image the the "eye-fi" text, you can see the RED Notification corner alerting me that an image was being or had been transferred.
But since I also got a cold, I made a large pot of chicken soup and baked some bread (I ground a mix of wheat and oat berries). (taxes can wait till April 10, or 11, or ...14th!) Those indoor images are definitely grainy.
Here's the fruits of those various labors:
