Excerpt: Serves a purpose but like I said don't throw away your card reader. I'm 30 yrs old and good with consumer tech products. Here are my experience's with the pro x2. I initially used the pro x2 to transfer photo's over my home wifi network from my dslr to my computer with poor results. The transfers took forever (a few minutes per 5/mb jpeg). The photo transfers took so long my dslr battery would die most times. I had much better luck using the pro x2 in direct mode.
Excerpt: This card is fun as it gives your SLR wi-fi technology. What is upsetting from the git go is the lack of instruction with the item. A booklet or something would have been nice, but once I worked my way through it, it seemed easy. What makes me mad is that I spent $ on the Canon 5D Mark III and this tech couldn't have been part of the camera? Come on Canon.
Excerpt: As a professional, I was hoping to integrate the wifi into my shooting work flow. It did not happen since the file sizes I am shooting are too large for the wifi to transmit quickly. I'm sure lower file sizes would work better. Set up /instructions could be a bit more clearly stated.
Excerpt: I had some difficulty setting this up in my Olympus E-PL5. You really do need to read the manual and instructions to get it to work and even that didn't work right the first time for me. Somehow, it started working though...just frustrating. Uploads are a little slow but again, it works better than no wifi.
Excerpt: I use this card for real estate photography for a wireless connection to my laptop for larger previews of photographs. Takes about 8 minutes to set up the laptop so images will start to show on Lightroom, as the Eye-Fi card has to first connect, then download a test image, then you have to delete the test image and point Lightroom to the proper file. The larger previews on the laptop allow me to better judge the quality of the shots that I am taking.
Excerpt: I bought this SD card for a PR job I was shooting that required I email photos to their team as the event progressed. There was no wi-fi network available, so buying the Eye-Fi card was a no-brainer. Tether my iPhone to my Nikon, set the camera to record medium jpeg to the Eye-Fi (for immediate social media usage) and RAW files to my CF card (for backup), and I was good to go.The problem was that the connection between the card and my iPhone wold drop every time my...
Pros: Amazing Technology, Very handy
Cons: Buggy software, Difficult To Use, Unreliable
Excerpt: I bought this as a way to tether my camera to a display device — iPad — to facilitate my digital photography workflow. But the fact of the matter is that it took 20 seconds to display a JPG image, even longer for a RAW image, to display on my own wi-fi network (read: not a lot of traffic). The better solution is to hardwire my camera to the iPad — faster and easier to set up.
Excerpt: The idea is nice. 1. The software doesn't always delete the images that you select. You need to try multiple times. Even if you delete them from the hard drive they still show on the program 2. Uploading to my desktop PC through a router is unreliable. Not all pictures are uploading. I am talking about JPEGs at 16mpx 3. Customer support is a little slow and not very useful. At least for now. 4.
Excerpt: The Eye-Fi is a great idea but it doesn't seem to work very well in practice. My wife and I are amateur photographers and we thought it might improve studio workflow (We shoot a Nikon D600 and a Canon G12). Even though RAW support was advertised as a feature, transferring RAW from the D600 was so slow it wasn't really usable.
Excerpt: Our clients were impressed with seeing their images almost instantly on our iPad, providing wonderful feedback and satisfaction. However, when to the Eye-Fi disconnects right in the middle of a mini-PR session, it was less than impressive. I was unable to figure our why this was happening, so I've sent a problem report to the Eye-Fi tech support. If we can get this fixed, then the rating will increase to 5-stars!
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Value, Large Capacity, Writes/Reads fast
Cons: Shuts Off Unexpectantly, Unreliable Performance
