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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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).
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.
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).
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.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Value, Large Capacity, Writes/Reads fast
Cons: Shuts Off Unexpectantly, Unreliable Performance
