Transcend has released their newest Wi-Fi capable SDHC memory cards to make image transfers just that much easier. It works via an existing Wi-Fi connection from an Internet hotspot in Internet mode or it can operate though the Direct Share mode which allows for a peer-to-peer connection between your camera and any mobile device. Direct Share is a great choice for instant viewing during your shoot that will take advantage of the larger screen on your mobile device.

With the free Wi-Fi SD App that is available for both iOS and Android, you can access all of your photos from a shoot to browse, download, edit, and then share through your social media of choice. If you’re not into the whole mobile editing idea, there is a similar web browser app that’ll do the same thing. These new SD cards are of the speedy Class 10 rating and come in both 16GB and 32GB varieties at $69 and $99 respectively.

Last month I reported on an enticing price drop by Lexar on all their memory cards that was to end at the beginning of October. Imagine my surprise when I checked on prices today and found not only was the deal still on, some cards were even cheaper!

I don’t normally shoot with Lexar but it got me thinking: At these prices, would it be worth it to upgrade from my older Transcend X133 cards? And if so, should I stick with the cheaper brand or pony up the extra funds for Lexar or SanDisk?

The conclusion I came to is that, for my shooting, a mix is likely in my future. Let me lay out some numbers for you before you go hog wild on the cheap prices still available this month.
