The Eye-Fi Explore Video features:
|Easy Wireless Photo and Video Uploads |
With the Eye-Fi Explore Video card, you can wirelessly transfer your latest images to your favorite online site from just about anywhere. The card includes one year of free HotSpot access to over 10,000 Wi-Fi locations in the U.S., so you can upload while on the go.
|Share your Photos and Videos While Traveling |
Now you don't have to wait until you are back home to share your vacation images with family and friends. With the Explore Video card, you can choose your favorite images and simply transfer them to an online sharing site such as Facebook, Flickr, or YouTube--there are over 25 to choose from. Also, you can be automatically notified when the files are uploaded, so you'll be certain that your images have posted.
|Stores up to 2,000 Images |
The Explore Video card holds up to 2,000 images or 90 minutes of video with its robust 4 GB capacity. Now you can focus entirely on your subject matter without the distraction of running out of space.
|No Need to Remember the Location of Your Shots |
Each photo you take is automatically marked with the location of the picture, so you'll always know where the image was taken. The Explore Video card detects surrounding Wi-Fi networks to add location information to each picture. Just snap the picture and after wirelessly uploading to your computer, the photo will be labeled with the place where it was taken. It's that easy.
|Quick and Easy Set Up |
With the easy-to-read Setup Guide, installation is straightforward and hassle-free. Most users are up and running in a few minutes.

The geotagging works when there are Wi-Fi signals nearby, as the card uses those signals and a database to identify where it is. This feature seems to work well with that limitation. My problem with the feature is that the geotagging only works though if you wirelessly upload the pictures. Which leads me to the second issue.
The wireless upload is exceptionally slow. You get no indication on your camera that the upload has started or if there are any problems. You can sign up for email, SMS or Twitter updates, but it would be nice to see this on the camera. The upload is very, very, very slow. I had 100 pictures and it took over 2 hours. My camera batteries depleted themselves twice during this process.
It would be much better if you could still use the included SD/USB adapter to upload your pictures and retain the geotagging information.
With a 4GB SD card only costing $15-20 these days, you are paying at least an $80 premium for the wireless uploading and geotagging. I wish those both worked a little better.
The other, though less important, reason that I bought this card is because of its wireless upload capabilities. However, again, Eye-Fi does not make clear the specifics of how this is achieved, nor the limitations. Uploading from the card to either your computer or the web service of your choosing can occur in two ways: while you are in range of a network which you have pre-configured the card for with that network's credentials; or when in range of a Wayport access point (at a cost of $15 per year, 1st year is free with some Eye-Fi cards) or open networks. As it says on my Eye-Fi manager settings:
"Wayport, Inc. offers Internet access at over 10,000 retail locations, including McDonald's restaurants, hotels and airports. Open Networks offer free Internet access and do not require you to load a browser welcome screen.Read more ›
I have been using EYE-FI cards for a long time and love the features that they offer. There is no easier way to take a picture/video and upload it to your computer from a wireless network (both in your home, office, or at wi-fi hotspots). They utilize Wayport Hotspot Access for outside of the home/office and Skyhook Wireless for Geotagging.
The cards have been offered, without video, in the 2gb model for a very long time and have been my personal favorites...however 2gb is just not enough sometimes...considering the umpteen numbers of mega-pixels these days. I was very excited when the 4gb came out and offered video to boot.
When I say expectations - as in the title of this review - you have to realize that this is a 3rd party tool that works in all Cameras that accept SD cards. That being said it does not have the ability to interface with your camera's screen to give you updates as to what it is doing and when it is uploading. There is a bit of blind faith required to know that it is working....and worst case scenario is that if it didnt make the upload, the picture is still on the card and can be removed normally via the sd card adapter. Also, the fact that this card has wireless on it and does support geotagging is an awesome feature that will allow any camera to become gps aware...yes you need to be in an area that has some sort of wi-fi so that it can find where you are. Its not a true geo-tag feature.
Battery life will be an issue for most of the people that buy this card. Why? Simple answer is that it uses your camera battery to power the wi-fi portion of the card when it is uploading to your computer.Read more ›
This review is from a duped buyer that ordered this 4GB Explore card.
Upon arrival the card would not be read in my Nikon D90 (gave the infamous CHA message which refers to unreadable SD card media) nor my iMac nor my Windows 7 machine. So I went online and entered the Eye-fi website. There I found an email address for support and wrote about the fact that the car did not read. No answer after 24 hrs. 48 hrs pass and I write them again. In the meanwhile I enter their self-help forums and find to my surprise that there are quite a few frustrated posters on there dealing with non-working cards. I mean, hundreds of posts...
While I leave a post there, asking the forum moderator where I can get an RMA as support does not respond, I get responses from Eye-fi employees telling me to format the SD card. GREAT ADVICE, especially after telling them in the first place that the item does not READ on any device. I get no response when I retort that there is nothing to format if the card does not read. No response... time passes. I write again to the forum, posting my support query and asking for help on this expensive item. Again, there seem to be quite a lot of frustrated / duped consumers on there and by the number of posts these cards are POOR quality.
Finally, after 5 business days I get an email back: " we will close your support request as you have not responded to us". A total cop-out as I never received any response, nor did they show me one. It was also not in my junk-folder so a cheap way to get the consumer to take the blame "since I did not respond". The story goes on an on, but to make a long story short. THEY NEVER HELPED, NEVER OFFERED TO REPLACE THE ITEM NOR ANSWERED ANY QUESTIONS. And it took them 5 days.Read more ›
