When my wife and I attended MacWorld 2008 in San Francisco, the product we were the most excited about was the Eye-Fi cards. We imagined how it could improve the experience of our family members when it came to downloading photos. We purchased 4, and smuggled them back to Canada, and gifted them to various family members. These worked pretty well, but were limited to downloads within networks you added on your computer. Upon our return to MacWorld 2010, my Eye-Fi card quit working after taking one day's worth of photos. Eye-Fi was happy to exchange it for me, no questions asked. The new card seemed like it was made out of much cheaper plastic. It worked for the rest of the trip, but I was unable to get the software to download photos wirelessly (the whole point of this unit). I think the real culprit here is the software that has to run on your computer. The feature creep seems to have turned a functional program into bloatware. My location could also be a problem, as Eye-Fi focuses on customers in the USA, and most features are disabled outside the USA. I think the addition of an SD slot on my new Apple Macbook Pro eliminates my biggest reason to use the Eye-Fi card. I always hated packing SD card readers or USB cables for cameras, now I don't have to. Perhaps Eye-Fi will fix the software problems, but for now I rate this item as a toy, not something you could rely on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great idea - spotty execution (installation) Aug. 29 2010
'Sometimes you do not realize that you need something until it comes along', This should be a motto for the consumer age, or a double edge meme for technology.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love Hate Relationship March 31 2013
By ppdiaporama TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
UPDATE AFTER 3 MONTHS OF USE.

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.

i hook this up to my Samsung Galaxy S3. when i finish a shoot i upload the photos i like to my dropbox and send a link to clients. it definitely is not as fast as shooting tethered to Lightroom but its wireless. the setup took a little bit of reading but i got through it.

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 more

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a miracle but....
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 more

I have two independent security cameras with motion detection sensing. They capture a 20 second video when alarmed and transfer the data to an SDHC card. Read more

It works as advertised but it is a little complicated using it with my Nikon 40DX. When I looked for help I found it with the chat feature in their help area on the web.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great
Easy to use - but does not transfer RAW images.
Upgraded to the the 16Gb one for RAW but is unreliable and slow. Wish I'd stuck with this one.
