The November meeting for the Camera Owners of the Bay Area (COBA) user group will be held on Wednesday, November 14, 2007, in Cordura Hall 100 at Stanford University from 7:30-10:00 pm.
Photos shouldn’t be trapped in your camera. Set them free. No cables, no waiting, no hassles.
That’s the mantra of Mountain View-based company Eye-Fi. The Eye-Fi Card is a $99 wireless memory card. It automatically uploads pictures from your digital camera to your PC or Mac and to your favorite photo sharing, printing, blogging or social networking site.
Founder and VP of Marketing (and longtime COBA member), Ziv Gillat, will be on hand to demonstrate the Eye-Fi card. I’ve used this product and it’s really amazing! Bring your camera and watch it be transformed into a wireless digital camera at the meeting.
In addition, Eye-Fi has graciously donated an Eye-Fi card for the winner of this month’s assignment. Read below for more details.

Windy Hill Photography (November 10, 2007)
For those of you who haven’t completed the monthly assignment, there’s a Low-Key Hillclimbs bike race tomorrow, Saturday, November 10. A 1.6 mile time-trial on dirt roads awaits the Low-Key riders up the Windy Hill trail in Portola Valley.
Staging and Registration will take place at the lower Windy Hill Open Space Parking lot Preserve parking lot on Portola Road .8 miles north of Alpine Road. At 10:10 am, the cyclists will do the 1.2 mile dirt promenade to the intersection of the Spring Ridge Trail and the Meadow Trail where riders will be started individually beginning at approximately 10:20am. The finish will be at the intersection of Spring Ridge Trail and Skyline Blvd.
There’s no time to shoot both the start or finish, so if you plan to photograph the event, come to one or the other.
