CAUTION: For anyone thinking about purchasing this card, you need to make sure that your camera will be compatible and the eye-fi card will transfer the types of files you want transferred. This particular card is a SDHC, meaning your camera needs to be able to handle SDHC cards (not just SD cards!). Also, read in the forums on the eye-fi site to find out if anyone has found problems with your particular camera blocking signals from the card. I have read that some camera cases interfere with the wireless signals from the card. This card will transfer jpeg picture files, but no other image files. There is a new pro card out that will transfer RAW files if you want to transfer those. Video formats the 4GB Share Video card will handle include: MPEG, AVI, MOV, FLV, MP4, and WMV.
The card comes with a small USB device that allows you to plug the card into your compuer. After plugging it in, an eye-fi manager will be launched via your web browser. You must create an account with eye-fi (just requires an email signup - no fees). After the account is set-up, the card will detect wireless connections and allow you to select which connection to use. I had a horrible time getting the card to connect to my wireless connection (never had any problems with other devices, and I have quite a bit of experience setting up wireless networks/devices). The problem is that they give you way too few options to fix problems that might arise. The one and only solution the eye-fi gave me when it wouldn't connect was to add the card's MAC address to my wireless router's list of incoming connections, which didn't help at all.Read more ›
Eye-Fi supports states you will hardly notice a difference in battery usage. I completely disagree. With my wife's 780is the battery time is cut by more than half. Make sure you add in the cost of a backup battery when buying an Eye-Fi card. Of course if your camera uses AA than you will be adding to the landfills faster
I am now hardly using the card anymore because I would rather put my 16GB SDHC in my camera and just plugin it into the SD slot on my laptop.
The lack of RAW support is also a downer for me but not showstopper. I often shoot in RAW format so I can do post processing of the photos. If RAW is a must you will need to purchase the Pro verion, which also gives you geotagging. Of course geotagging is $15 a year after the first year. You can also add wayport wifi access for $15 a year, which I chose not to do
On the plus side it does support WPA security so you do not have to have the worry of weak WEP security
I would say this is definitely more for the casual phototaker and not the professional.
Would I recommend it, yes but with the understanding that once the novelity wears off you may find yourself using it less.
I used this card in a Canon A560 point and shoot camera using a Windows Vista 64 machine on a protected wireless G network. Setting it up was very easy. Pop the card, inserted into the included card reader, into a USB port, and follow the prompts. When the software is installed you have to register the card via a web browser with the Eye-fi website. They asked for an email address, your name, and a password. I put the card in my camera, took a picture, and voila, the picture was downloaded to a new "Eye-Fi" folder in my pictures folder. The pictures download as soon as you take them and these 7.1MP pictures took about 3-5 seconds each to download.
- Easy installation
- Works as advertised
- 4GB stores a lot of pictures; pictures remain on card just in case
- No cables needed
- Uploads to picture sharing sites
- Amazing that it works!
The not so good:
- No control of when pictures download. If there are new pictures and your computer is on, they download. So you don't get a chance to delete the bad pictures from the camera before they download.
- It is a bit slower than a cable. If you have many pictures to download (say you took them away from your network), you have to wait longer than if you used a cable. Again, if you only wanted one or two pictures, you still have to wait for them all to download.
- You have to leave your camera on for them to download. Although there is no cable, you still have to wait for things to finish so you can turn off the camera and put it away.
- It is unclear how much power the card uses so I don't know how it will affect battery usage.Read more ›
