If you have a digital camera or a reflex you will have at least once tried an SD Memory Card that you can use with it. On the market there are several models, which differ in their capacity or in the speed of reading and writing that can be achieved when transferring the shots to the PC. Although with a camera you can achieve a higher quality than the smartphone camera, I have always preferred the latter because almost instantly, immediately after shooting I could see the photos or videos on my PC thanks to the integration with cloud services.
With a camera instead, it is necessary to remove the SD Memory Card, insert it into the PC, download the photos, remove it from the PC and place it back into the camera. Far too many steps that you certainly do systematically too and that in the long run can get tired.In order not to renounce to the quality of a reflex n to the simplicity of smartphones in transferring the photos taken, I decided to try one SD memory card which, among its features, incorporates a Wi-Fi module that allows you to transfer photos to a PC, smartphone and tablet without the need to remove the memory card from the camera.

In order to read the contents, you will need to connect to this network (password protected by default 88888888) and then access the photos and videos via browser, if you are connecting from the PC, or via the free dedicated app, available for Android and iOS (don't worry if the description or screenshots are in Chinese, the app is also localized in English).
