Default Wifi SD card..Wow

Got a wifi SD card of 16 Gb from a well known Japanese brand at US$30 through ebay. It price has dropped even before Black Friday
It works out really great indeed with my vintage K20D. I have a cellular phone with 64 Gb storage too pairing with the camera/card.
After taking images, it generates a wifi hot spot and anyone nearby including my phone. It can access it. Downloading it is fast too.
Now I bring my K20D even for social occasions such as dinners. I can tell anyone around me interested in getting my image (in my camera) to access my images by typing the code 12345678 in their cellular phone. That is it.
Points to note: (1) I need to make sure that the batt is charged. K20D batt is great indeed
(2) some cameras have problem (e.g. Nikon D90) as it saves energy by cutting off power to the SD card after a brief moment of usage. But that can be corrected via the menu.

Brilliant idea! I bought the Pentax FLU card a while back. I haven't used it for uploading so didn't think about something like this yesterday for Thanksiving. Wish I had!

H. Just the right time that your guests (or people that hang around with you for this festive time) that your Pentax new gears are just as impressive as the other brands
