Is it the:
- Connect X2 4Gb+WIFI
- Geo X2 4Gb+WIFI
- Explore X2 8GB+WIFI
- Pro X2 8Gb+WIFI
Hopefully this works well with the Wireless N router i had at home...
AWESOMEAmazing , I got Eye-Fi Pro X2 8G + Extreme CF Adapter now ;-)
From my experience, that adapter will not show much speed degradation, whatsoever, over our normal 12MBps write speeds.And YES , it works properly on my Canon EOS 7D , one picture take at least 5-7 seconds upload into my macbook-pro .
Notice what I wrote exactly. I said it's UNSUPPORTED :-) I didn't say that it won't work.i don't understand why you told me that it doesn't work with CF Adapter ? I've also test the burst shooting 8 frames / sec , and it also works .
You found THE ONLY adapter that works with the Canon bodies. It is EXTREMELY hard to get, especially here in the US, and only works in UDMA bodies, like the 7D or 5DmkII. SO... we can't support it.
The other adapters won't work at all, in Canon bodies, so they're also unsupported.
Please share where you've purchased the Extreme adapter.
The summary on CF adapters can be found here:
The main difference between the pro x2 and the others is that it'll upload raw, and support ad-hoc wireless. Here is a nice comparison:Which one should I buy? There are so many typers of EYE-Fi cards? Which one is the correct/ compatible one?
Those that are able to get it -- will find that it works. I just need to say again that it's unsupported by Eye-Fi. We can't support a product that only works in a handful of cameras. That said, I'm glad that it works for you. I'm the one at Eye-Fi that has experimented with every possible CF adapter out there :-)
I can't make any claims that we will or won't do a CF product. We simply don't pre-announce our plans, one way or another. All I can say is -- stay tuned. Meanwhile, if we find an adapter that works, with a wide array of cameras, we'll let people know. Our forums are current, and so is our mailing list, twitter, blog, Facebook, etc...
My EYE-FI pro has arrived. Knowing our postmen who only knocks once and leave a attempted delivery note at your door step, I put my delivery address at my office. It took less than 2 weeks to arrive from the time I placed the order from Amazon, taking advantage of its free delivery and free packing within continental US and using VPost. Much cheaper than a clubsnapper who wanted to sell his for $280.
Setup is comparatively painless. The whole process of transferring files is fast enough, more so when you tweak your router's setting. But so far I am not able to upload to picasaweb using Eye-Fi menu as there is no feedback whether the process is hung or what. I use the other alternative by using my free Picasa application to monitor incoming files and having it synched to my picasaweb account. Its faster too. The files are geotagged but will turn this feature off for privacy reasons as googlemaps now show the file location which is my home.
The Eye-Fi pro pairs very well with Nikon D7000. I put the Eye-Fi card on slot 2 for all the flexibility I need. If I shoot raw but wants to transfer jpgs for viewing only, I set slot 2 to accept only jpg file. To transfer raw files, slot 2 is set as backup. 'Turning off' Eye-Fi is by setting slot 2 to overflow mode, an event which does not happen since I never filled up slot 1. This way, the slightly fat Eye-Fi card stays in slot 2 almost permanetly. I derived most of Eye-Fi time saving benefits when checking camera settings and testing lens, being able to see results and compare results without tethering the camera to the computer.
I'm unable to upload photos to mobile gallery... It's showing uploading status forever... Anyone encounter this?
Great news. My eye-fi pro x2 8GB just arrived.
Tested it out last night with the eye-fi center installed on my laptop. It worked well. It just always has a slow upload on my 1st picture (coming from idle). Otherwise, it worked great.
Has anyone tried out eye-fi's iphone app? Tried using it last night and wasn't getting anything? What is the app for anyway? Does it work like Shutter Snitch?
Btw, Shuttersnitch's priced went up to USD 16 from USD 8. What's with that? Still thinking if I do need it. Currently, the Eye-fi center is not good enough since it does not show the latest shot in full view (with details like Shutte Snitch provides ex. ISO, F__, etc.)
Do we have other options besides Shuttersnitch?
Too bad Direct Mode is not yet available.
Just got the CF adaptor a couple of days ago as what was recommended by biskandar. Thanks!!!
It worked with my 7D, will have to see if it works with my other digital cameras. Will also try with Olympus.
Though the upload speeds aren't blazing fast, but it does work. So I have another option in my bag of tricks now.
It took over 1 min to transfer a high res jpeg.
Now, are there any suggestions to help with the uploading speed?? I read somewhere that removing the metal covers help but not too sure if I want to expose the internals....just yet.
Updated latest list. So far seem like Samsung Ex1 not supported. When Eyefi inserted, it show "card not support" .. hmm .. was it due to SDHC Class 6 version? anyway... the supported list still goes on and on :P
