Eye-Fi - WIFI SD card

Postby MagWeb » Sat Oct 16, 2010 8:32 am

Hi everyone,

I got an Eye-Fi card and checked out its usability for structured light purposes, here are first impressions:

I ordered it for I saw a possibility to get an (almost) universal solution to get images from a digicam to a PC (without switching the cams mode to a PC mode, that happens with many cams, if you connect them to PC via USB).

Once set up, the card sends new shot images to a defined directory on your PC automatically. This works....
- to upload a 12 image serie takes more time than you´d need to remove the card from the cam and to put it into a card reader (or to switch the cam's mode to PC and connect it via USB);
- the card does not send the images at once (after you did the shots) but waits some time ( seems it waits whether you´ll do more shots);
- the card seems to need some battery power (I´ve the feeling that my battery runs only about 2/3 of its usual time using this card);

This card is an option for difficult setups where you do not want to touch your cam, but I think at its current speed it is somehing for patient guys.

Thanks for testing. I liked the idea as well, when I heared about this card, but my DSLR takes CF-cards, so this was no option. Which card did you test. I thought, that different capacities have diferent speeds, right? Or do I think about another producer?
There is also the flu-card and I think at least one other producer for those cards.

Anyway good to know your results.
