Cult of Mac Covers Mobile World Congress with iPhone and Eye-Fi

Charlie Sorrel at Cult of Mac details how he relied on his iPhone and an Eye-Fi card in a Fujifilm X100S camera to cover the Mobile World Congress this year. The event is the top venue for mobile phones and accessories. He writes:

A few years ago, when I first started covering the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, I would turn up with a DSLR, a couple of lenses, a CF card reader, a MacBook (and power cable) and a backpack to carry it all in. I’d have to go to the press lounge to find a power outlet and an Ethernet jack (the Wi-Fi back then was so bad it wasn’t worth trying, even in the press lounge).

Now I can literally turn up with the iPhone in my pocket and cover everything, and arguably do it better. I didn’t really need the X100S to do the job, but I took it anyway because it made the job more fun. That’s pretty neat right there.
