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
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
Excerpt: Picked this up to use with my Canon 5D Mark iii for wireless transfer direct to PC. Once setup, it works slick, but the instructions for setting up to go direct to PC need to be more detailed and clear. Instructions overall, need to be more detailed and more clear. This would go a long way towards a better user experience. I've only used in Direct Mode and the functionality works well.
Pros: Reasonable Cost
Cons: Capability Issues, No Windows Tablet Support
Excerpt: I dont know... I am not sure about the Eye-fi pro... I didnt find the installation very user friendly and clear... I have purchased the card to see the picture on my Ipad... But so far is working only on the computer... I dont know if i made some mistake during the installation or what... And so i am still triying... I hope in the best!
Excerpt: Setting up was much more time consuming than I thought it should be. I connected it with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Phone and my Samsung Note 10.1 Tablet. I thought at first it did not work, but about 10 minutes later, I started seeing my pictures come through, magically but slowly. I am continuing to work with it and have not been able to get the Geo Tagging Data I was hoping to receive. The quality of the wireless pictures is very good.
Pros: Good Quality Jpeg Files
Cons: Real Work To Get All Set, Slow Cloud Transmission
Excerpt: Does not work as well as being tethered. Not even close. As far as using as a memory card or off loading shots it works just fine. But as a replacement for shooting tethered don't even thing about it.
