Eye-Fi Plans International Expansion Eye-Fi Will Bring the Ease of Wireless Photo Uploading to Japan and Canada



    PHOTOKINA and COLOGNE, Germany, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Eye-Fi
 Inc. (www.eye.fi), makers of the world's first wireless memory card for
 digital cameras, announced plans to expand its distribution internationally
 to Japan and Canada by the end of the year.
 
     With an Eye-Fi card, users can wirelessly upload photos directly from
 their digital camera to a computer, or to online photo sharing and printing
 sites.
 
     "According to IDC, in 2006, 325 billion photos were snapped worldwide,
 but only 40 billion of those were shared. That tells us that consumers
 worldwide need an easier way to share photos," said Jef Holove, CEO of
 Eye-Fi. "We're excited to give users in Japan and Canada the ability to
 share their memories effortlessly."
 
     As a commitment to Japan as a strategic market, Eye-Fi has established
 Eye-Fi Japan KK, based in Tokyo. Daisuke Tanaka will serve as managing
 director.
 
     "Japan has always been at the center of the photography world --
 whether its innovations from the industry or enthusiasm from consumers,"
 said Tanaka. "Eye-Fi's expansion into Japan is a natural fit, where there
 is a strong appetite for innovative photography gadgets."
 
     Eye-Fi has won numerous awards, including PC World's "The 100 Best
 Products of 2008" and Yahoo! Tech's "Last Gadget Standing 2008" at the
 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. For more information, please visit
