I've been using a Canon Poweshot to take pics of projects. Initially I connected a USB cable to transfer them into my PC, but the connection seemed slow and the interconnect software clumsy. So I bailed on that, and have just been pulling the SD card and moving it into my PC to grab the pictures from Explorer.
Yesterday, I found a new toy at Bestbuy - EyeFi.http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Eye-Fi+-+Wireless+Connect+X2+4GB+Secure+Digital+High+Capacity+(SDHC)+Memory+Card/9765392.p?id=1218169696870&skuId=9765392
Comes with a USB socket that looks like an SD card reader, and serves as the WiFi receiver; the SD card is a transmitter and goes into the camera.
Setup on WinVista was smooth. Now I take a picture, after 5-6 seconds I get a little indicator showing the picture as it is downloaded, and saved to my hard drive. Pretty neat!
I must admit I wouldn't have bought it normally, I had this $50 Reward Card that was expiring, and I was just going to get a 16 or 32GB SD card when I saw the package and figured I'd save some wear & tear on the SD card socket.
