Excerpt: I had had great hopes for the Eye-Fi SDHC Wireless Card, even after reading the negative reviews about the product here on B&H. But I have to say that most of the negative reviews were correct. The package comes with virtually no instructions, was very confusing as to setup, and very difficult to get it to sync with my Apple iPad 3.I have a Nikon 7100 (which should have built-in wireless anyway, hear that Nikon, maybe that is why Canon is pulling ahead).
Pros: Not Much
Cons: Difficult To Use, No instructions, Not Functional, Poor Design, Sync Breakes
Excerpt: ** WARNING **<br /><br />I just bought a 16Gb pro card. Thought it would be awesome for me and have experienced card corruption issues. It will start to download and get "stuck"after 15 or so photos and then the card is corrupted. This happens both in the camera (tried 4 different cameras) and in card readers (tried THEIR card reader and 5 others). DO NOT RELY ON THIS CARD FOR ANYTHING !<br /><br />If you research this online, this is a very common problem.
Excerpt: This can be very difficult to set up and the desired results are hard to come by. My intention was to transfer photos in Direct Mode to my iPad for easy sharing and later downloading to my computer. There is a lot going on with the card that the user is probably unaware of. First, if you have listed a network (say your home network) on the card it will use that first.
Excerpt: I bought this with the intention of using it during photo-hiking trips. I figured that we would shoot a scene and while heading to the next location it would download my images to my iPad. The only reason that I wanted to do this was for better viewing of the images and mainly for fun. It will download CR2 images but at a dreadfully slow rate. If you have a lot of images, you better plan on a long hike to the next location as it takes forever to do the upload.
Excerpt: I'm 33 and I'm a professional photographer. I am techie. I can set up networks, write code for websites, yadda, yadda. **I cannot, for the life of me, figure out the Eye-Fi Center software required to get the images off of my Eye-Fi Pro X2.** Apparently it can only transfer wirelessly, not directly through an SD slot into Lightroom, Explorer, Adobe Bridge, etc. I will figure this out, get my vacation photos, and then smash it with a hammer.
Excerpt: I had purchased this card for our micro 4/3 'family camera.' As a professional photographer I often leave family photos on the camera forever, just not having the time to off load and share regularly. My wife has no idea how to get the photos off the camera and therefore relies on me.
Excerpt: i bought the pro version because i shoot in raw format. it is soo slow to transfer to the computer i perfer downloading from the usb. transfering jpg is ok and fast but this card is useless for me.
Excerpt: First, you MUST use the included card reader to make changes to settings. You cannot make changes on the fly. Second, the cards are SLOW, expect your buffer to fill up, camera freeze & camera errors. I consistently had errors show on my Nikon's LCD with this card. Third, you must pay extra for storage at the eye-fi site (for more than 7 days) & you must pay extra to have the cards use free public wi-fi (unless you configure each AP individually).
