Good for Amateur camera use Not for PRO!

Marco Morittu, B&H Photo
21 June 2014
  • Excerpt: After reading all that contradictory reviews, I decided anyway to give it a try and bought the Pro X2 Version of the Eye-Fi.What I was looking for? First of all I was trying to find a reliable Item to transfer wirelessly pictures from my camera and back up them on to my Mac; in order to gain time on the After shoot usual downloading via card reader.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Transfer Rate

Instant Gratification

  • Excerpt: In this day on instant gratification, the Eye-Fi is a bit slow. I was hoping to have DSLR photos appear "instantly" on my iDevice (phone, pad, etc.). They didn't. Maybe they would if I used a smaller photo size.
  • Pros: It Does Work
  • Cons: Writes/reads slow

Too slow to replace a USB tether cable

29 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I was really hoping to be able to replace my USB tether cable with the Eye-Fi Pro X2. I set my D600's second card slot to JPEG Basic but the transfer still took 12 to 18 seconds to view the images on my laptop. I tried uploading to both Lightroom 5 and ViewNX 2, but the transfer was still too slow to use for shooting active kids or even family shoots. I heard great things about the transfer rate of this new Eye-Fi Pro X2 card, but for me it is back to the USB cable.
  • Pros: The Hotspot Works Good
  • Cons: Too Slow For My Use, Unreliable Performance

EASY?

  • Excerpt: It's not so easy to configurate you eye-fi card pro X2 to see fotos in you mobile phone. I followed instructions. I subscribe (user name and password) and nothing. No transfer. So, I decided to come back to my old MOBI eye-fi card that brings an activation code at the back of the case and that is all. It Works marvellously.

reserving judgement

  • Excerpt: I like the idea of this. I have friends who use it on shoots to keep Art Directors and creatives in the loop. They say with the app on their iPads-phones they can see what's being shot without having to crowd around the camera or laptop and get in the photographers way. That's why i bought it. Got it yesterday and after an hour of trying to get it to work decided to stop for the day out of frustration.

No problems with my internet.I completed the setup on both my desktop computer and laptop, both are relatively fast systems.I had a little trouble at first with installation on Windows 8, but contacted the Eye Fi Help and that issues was resolved.

A big disappointment

drip01, B&H Photo
22 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The biggest reason I bought this Pro version was its claim to geotag the images. Also it'd be cool to upload selected images from my iPhone to my Picasa website without the need of a PC. Unfortunately, after two months of usage in several trips, I can see this product is unable to perform the two tasks more than 50% of the time.
  • Cons: Poor Geotagging, Unreliable Performance

The idea of its cool..

Tom C, B&H Photo
17 September 2013
  • Excerpt: ...but its ridiculously confusing to get it working correctly. Still can't even get my 1DmkIV to recognize the card even though the Eye-Fi site claims to support it. Don't even get my started on the software...ugh. If you don't NEED wireless transfer, stick with a wired tether and save yourself the headache and money.

Problem with Eye-Fi downlaod and Opening

Bioteacher, B&H Photo
1 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased a subscription to Eye-Fi so I can download or show my pictures anywhere. They say there is unlimited storage space for each account. I take a lot of pictures, especially during the summer. I was away and wanted to show some of my friends some pictures and could not download them or even open the page so they could see thumbnails of the pictures.
  • Pros: Easy To Use

Not What I was Expecting

Mother, B&H Photo
30 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I am a professional travel shooter. I shoot regionally in the Southeast and Northeast and sometimes Europe. On travel shoots you have to get some pretty good food shots. I wanted to get the Eye-Fi card to help me dial in on placement of props and framing. I used one with a friend on a studio shoot and it was nice to have. I use two Canon Mark IV's on my trips and shoot to SanDisk Extreme Pro CF cards. Never had a problem with them.
