Gadgets pop-up, "What if" ideas are released and then you end up with a product like this; It doesnt appear to be that usefull, but it makes alot of sense if you consider the nifty things you could do with it. Because Eye-Fi offers many variations on their products, let me break it down;
'Connect': permits transfer of JPEGs and AVIs (video) wirelessly from the camera to your local wi-fi network or via hot spots to the Internet
'Pro X2' : adds the transmission of larger RAW format files from a DSLR to a local wi-fi, hot spot OR ad-hoc network with a laptop of wi-fi device (ex: mifi router) - This last option is VERY important (read on)
'Geotaging'; doesnt actually use GPS coordinates but records local wi-fi/hot spots and 'tags' your pics with approximate location - This option is not that interesting to me, a serious user of geotagging should consider a 'GPS recorder', a small device that uses GPS to record your photo walks that you can can synch to your photos for precise geolocation
I bought the 'Connect x2' (4GB), but should have bought the 'Pro X2' (8GB) because of the additional RAW support and direct wi-fi Ad-Hoc connection to a laptop. I wanted to test it first (cheaper), and eventually will go for the Pro X2 for these specific reasons;
Although I can see why a photographer in their studio might wish to use a Eye-Fi to transfer photos to their local wi-fi network, producing 'endless memory', or parents using it as a no fuss memory that transfers itself to the hard drive as you walk in the door.Read more ›
Despite what I said below, I decided to purchase a second one. I don't regret it but ... I've learned a few things along the way which I wanted to share.
1) It depends on the camera! In my Fuji X20, which is a late-model camera, my experience is 100%. Based on that alone, I would give it 5 stars. In my other two cameras which date from 2009 and 2010, the transfer often gets interupted even though I've set the camera and the metre not to go off. Especially for my D90, it regularly crashes after 4 or 5 photos. I then have to turn off-on the camera to resume. If it was just for that one, I would give it 1 star.
2) If you take lots of pictures, like 100s, I found it easier just to turn off Eye-fi and transfer the photos using an SD-card reader. I also found that if you insert the card into a card-reader, since it's powered, it will start to transfer the pictures. As such, I carry a small card reader in my car that I can plug into the USB Aux outlet in the car --so this way, the pictures transfer to my tablet as we drive back hom!
New conclusion ... is try it out, but read up on how it works on your camera before you buy it.
___________ ORIGINAL REVIEW _________________
I've had the Eye-fi card for just over two weeks ago ... It's a Love-Hate relationship. One the one hand, I love the fact that I don't have to pull out my card. I can just put down the camera, go over to my computer or tablet and have access to the picture. On the other hand, the transfer process is slow and ackward!
Let's start with the good ... it's great to have the pictures transfered over-the-air! I actually have them go to my tablet, where I can see in large detail which ones I like and keep.Read more ›
I used this card in my Nikon D7000 (DSLR). I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I'll tell you why: when I bought this, my main purpose was to be able to upload the occasional photo to my phone from my camera in order to upload that picture from my phone to facebook/instagram/etc. It does this perfectly.
THE BAD REVIEWS SAY...
If you don't know anything about 802.11 protocols, you have to understand there are limits to the protocol AND to the fact that the antenna in the Eye-Fi card is as big as an ant. To think you're going to send full RAW pictures 100 yards away to your phone in 3 seconds is ridiculous. 802.11n (probably the most common protocol in household routing today) transfers around 54 mbps (it can reach 600mbps in extreme lab conditions using specific modulation techniques). 54mbps mean you transfer 7 megabytes per second, AT BEST (meaning you're right beside the device, there is no interference, etc.). I could go on.... but the moral is: You are not going to transfer 20MB Raw pictures in 3 seconds. Not going to happen.
WHAT I DID...
In my D7000, I have 2 card slots. I set the 2nd card slot to take small, fine quality JPEG's, which is more than enough for social media considering the size would probably fill any laptop screen anyways. The files transferring were about 8mb, which is quite large really and I could take the quality down and only transfer around 2-3mb instead. The uploads took anywhere from 5-15 seconds. Further to that, I used a feature called "Selective Transfer Mode" which allows you to use the LOCK button on your camera to choose which files to transfer to your phone (by default, it sends ALL the photos). It worked BEAUTIFULLY

As a memory card it works nicely. It also connects nicely to wifi, and doesn't cause unreasonable load on my camera's battery. Read morePublished on Aug. 24 2013 by Vote for Pedro
It's a miracle fitting WiFi technology into such a small package that also is a memory card - but set-up is awkward and limiting. Read morePublished on Aug. 21 2013 by Alan Zisman
