Wireless Raw File Uploads: Edit Like A Pro
The Eye-Fi Pro X2 not only wirelessly uploads JPEGs and video, but also RAW files. Whether you're a pro or not, now you can edit like one. You can even install watch folders to set Adobe's Lightroom or PhotoShop to automatically pull your RAW files and apply presets automatically. It's never been this easy to get your photos where you want them.
Works With Your Camera
The Pro X2 works with your existing camera just like regular SDHC cards. Shoot HD video and fast-action shots thanks to Class 10 read-and-write speeds. Check www.eye.fi/cameras for compatibility.
Eye-Fi cards are compatible with thousands of cameras, very likely including the one you already own. But, a variety of popular models from Canon, Nikon, Sony, and other well-known brands have integrated additional Eye-Fi technology to improve your overall experience.
Cameras with the Eye-Fi Connected logo signify an improved user experience and, in some cases, advanced features. Eye-Fi connected cameras can detect when an Eye-Fi card is being used and most of these cameras will stay powered on until the photo and video uploads are complete, have an on-screen icon signaling transfer activity and provide the ability to enable or disable Eye-Fi card WiFi via the camera menu. Some camera models will even identify which photos & videos have already been uploaded with an on-screen icon.

Eyefi 16GB Pro X2 SDHC Class 10 Wireless Flash Memory Card Frustration Free Packaging EYE-FI-16PC-FF
* I wanted to use it as a 2nd card in my 5D Mark III so that I could record RAW on the CF for editing later at home, but download the jpgs to an ipad for viewing and sending out while on the road. It recognized it a couple times from the Canon, but then stopped.
* So I put the SD card in my Sony Cybershot and then it would transfer the pics- most of the time - after a few attempts. But it does take 30 seconds per (large format) jpg.
But even without these problems, there is one huge shortcoming in the whole concept. Once it's downloaded to your ipad or iphone, you can't download it to a second device. You can't plug it into a computer and access the pictures. So what you are thinking, once you download them to one device, just transfer them. This normally would work, but I had to restore my ipad, and didn't realize this issue. I had used the eye-fi in my cybershot, so no backup on the CF. After googling this issue, I found this is a common problem user have been complaining about, but so far the issue has not beed addressed by eye-fi.
I will never use this card again as the only source to which I am recording. I am hoping that I will eventually find some way to make it work with my 5D when I'm on the road when I can also record it to my CF. Or maybe I will just give up and suck up the cost to being an early adopter.
I have been tremendously happy with this card. After reading many user feedbacks, I decided not to enable Direct Mode (complaints of battery drain and the inability to turn it off at the camera unlike eye-fi). Instead, I keep eye-fi off until I've taken photos and deleted the throw aways. I then enable eye-fi and my camera uploads them to my Android phone, which then forwards them to my computer (which only needs to be "asleep" to receive photos). I can then share my photos any way I want, and the next time I open up my laptop, there are the photos stored for safekeeping. So much easier than physically transferring either by cable-to-camera or inserting the card into the computer. Once the transfers are complete - and you'll see a wireless signal indicating transfers are going on - I just turn off eye-fi and am done with it. No excessive battery drain, just convenience. For the casual photographer, this is a great product!
I own every card in this review including the two EyeFi cards. I've used the cards in both the Nikon D90, Nikon D600 and either with or in my Samsung Note Pro 12.2 LTE tablet and Note 3 phone.
There is also a separate review I did a while back comparing the EyeFi Pro X2 8g and the Transend WiFi SD 16g if you look for it under either of those two review sections.
First I'll talk about my experience with EyeFi
I've found the EyeFi performance significantly better, read more reliable, than it was when I first purchased the class 6 card. In my Nikon D600 I like to set the transfer mode for "selective" and only transfer content to be uploaded to Facebook or Nikon Image Space. I usually don't transfer the raw files but that may change as I've just started using an Android app named Photo mate R2 which gives Adobe Lightroom-like raw editing capability to Android tablets.
While network location Geotagging still works, the Hotspot feature while available on newly purchased cards, cannot be renewed. That means that after the initial one year free period, as you walk around your vacation spots the EyeFi card will not be connecting to available hotspots in order to get location information. Likely they didn't get enough subscriptions but that feature was pretty useful for the majority of DSLR users whose cameras don’t have a built in GPS
I had needed to contact tech support via their Web Site and Facebook page and I received prompt attention.
In use, the features that caused me to purchase another Pro X2 card instead of the Mobi were; Flexibility, Selective upload and RAW transfers. Under the flexibility heading I use the ability of the X2 to perform an operation on a photo more than once. If I’m shooting away from my desktop I like to set the X2 to upload my selected photos to a Facebook album which is set private until I can set the captions and comments before making public. I may also decide to either concurrently or later to upload that same photo to Nikon Image Space or some other online album like Google+ or Fickr.
Speed is somewhat disappointing considering the plethora of very fast SD and microSD cards out there. As you can see from the tests below while the Class 10 EyeFi card is about 6mbs faster writing then the older Class 6 card, performance in the camera pales in comparison to a Class 10 UHS Sandisk card. If you have the older 8g Class 6 card I’m not sure upgrading to the new card (radio is the same on both cards) because of speed alone is worth it.
Overall I am still happy with the EyeFi Pro X2 card’s features and and I still think it is more useful that the Transend WIFI SD card I have even though the Transend has improved quite a bit in the last year.
General review of SD cards and real life speed in Tablets and Cameras follows.
I've recently purchased a new SD card for my camera, a Nikon D600, so that I can easily transfer photo's to my Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 tablet. In fact I purchased a Sandisk Extreme Pro MICRO SD card so I can just pop it out of my camera and into the tablet.
Below are some tests I ran with various speed cards both in my camera and in my Tablet as well as to/from my PC with a USB 3 card reader. In ALL cases the faster cards tested faster.
The most important test in my opinion was the slot to slot in camera test where I transferred 50 files totaling 1.29gb from one card to another in an attempt to see if the camera hardware could take advantage of the speed of the faster cards. In a word YES, it is significantly faster with the faster cards as seen here.
In camera performance. Nikon D600, 50 raw files, 1.29gb, copy slot 1 to slot 2.
Slot 1 Sandisk Extreme Plus Micro SD
Slot 2, Transend Class 10 - 2:40
Slot 2, Sandisk Extreme Pro - 1:37
In camera performance. Nikon D600, 50 raw files, 1.29gb, copy slot 1 to slot 2. Changed to two Class 10 full size SD cards
Slot 1, Transend Class 10
Slot 2 EyeFi Class 10 - 3:10
So the difference between fast UHS-1 cards and what the manufacturers are selling as fast Class 10 cards is very significant, 1:37 vs 3:10!
This test in my opinion confirms that the faster card is better, at least in cameras which support the UHS standard. This is a big difference in write speed which will be apparent when your buffer writes to disk.
The rest of these test benchmark performance both in and out of my Note Pro Tablet.
This batch of tests is from almost a year ago when I first got my tablet.
I tried benchmarks on both the Note and a PC as well as copying a 1 gig file over USB3 to both a card reader and the Note. As you can see it's slow and a cheap class 6 or 10 card should be more than enough if you talking just speed inside the Note Pro.
*Sandisk 64g class 10 UHS-1 rated at 80mbs - card connected via USB3 to PC, - 93mbs read, 61mbs write 500k sequential
*Sandisk 64g class 10 UHS-1 rated at 80mbs - 19.2 read and 15.2 write using AT SD default tested in the Tablet
*Sandisk class 6 16g card in Note Pro. 17.4 read and 10.97 write using AT SD default tested in the Tablet
*Transend WiFiSD class 10 16g card in card reader connected to Note Pro. 18.14 read and 15.28 write using AT SD default tested in the Tablet
*Sandisk 64g class 10 UHS-1 rated at 80mbs - copy 1g file USB3 to card reader - 28 seconds
*Sandisk 64g class 10 UHS-1 rated at 80mbs - copy 1g file to tablet (usb3 connection) - 1:28
More benchmarks: I bought the 32g Sandisk Extreme Pro micro SD and a 16g EyeFi Class 10 card and just did the following benchmarks this morning,
*Sandisk 32g Extreme Pro class 10 UHS-1 rated at 94mbs - card connected via USB3 to PC, - 93.14mbs read, 84.67mbs write 500k sequential
*Sandisk 32g Extreme Pro class 10 UHS-1 rated at 94mbs - 21.57 read and 19.78 write using AT SD default tested in the Tablet
*Eyefi Class 6 8g card in card reader connected via USB3 to PC, - 17.22mbs read, 13.47mbs write 500k
*EyeFi Class 10 16g card in card reader connected via USB3 to PC, - 20.03mbs read, 19.57mbs write 500k
*Transend Class 10 16g card in card reader connected via USB3 to PC, - 20.83mbs read, 17.22mbs write 500k
**And, just tried, the fastest way to get pictures on your tablet is with a USB3 OTG cable and a USB card reader. I clocked the new Sandisk Extreme Pro at 33mbs read and write.
In summary, in every case faster cards tested faster but they only reached their advertised speeds when performing transfers via USB 3 to a PC and in those tests the difference between the fastest UHS cards and the Class 10 cards was very significant. The same relationship held true with the in camera test with the UHS cards testing significantly faster.
