Eye-Fi card worth the trouble

Fotoguy1965, B&H Photo
28 September 2014
  • 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.

Consumer use OK; Pro use Not So Much

  • 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.

If you can set it up, it works

3 September 2014
  • 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.

Fussy and fragile

  • 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.
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, Not Durable

A great idea

NJohnston Photography, B&H Photo
15 July 2014
  • 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...

Does What It's Supposed To Do But Slowly

skipperchong, B&H Photo
15 July 2014
  • 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.

Disppointing software

BM, B&H Photo
16 May 2014
  • 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.

Great idea, poor execution.

Mike T., B&H Photo
24 April 2014
  • 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.

Our clients were impressed!

JayAre, B&H Photo
27 January 2014
  • 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

You'll Need A Computer...

Rick, B&H Photo
20 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Bought during the Holiday season for the extra GB as I also have a 8GB Eye-Fi Card. I got this in a plain cardboard envelope with the card in a case and a Eye-Fi Card reader. To setup this card you HAVE to have PC. You also have to download a seperate program from Eye-Fi and you have to use the supplied Eye-Fi reader, although you can view the card and transfer images via third-party readers you can only change card settings via the Eye-Fi reader.
  • Pros: Large Capacity, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Have To Use Eye-fi Reder, Need A Pc Or Mac, Needs A Pcmac
