SD card with WiFi - you don't need to take it out of the camera to get hold of the images - only 8GB but a good price. Delivery is £3 but still cheaper than Amazon.

Had a Eye-Fi for years, great device but Ive just discovered it no longer works as they sold out the company so anyone who spent a fortune on pre Mobi models it wont work unless you kept the direct wifi link on your phone but you will still be unable to use the cloud service or eyefi centre. grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

This is ok for older cameras but most newer(last 7 years?) cameras will have wifey builtin, otherwise its quite expensive for the size and Class ?? I actually have an older camera that could do with this , but I went out and bought a new camera instead, as Digicams have come on in leaps and bounds over the last twelve years. Also this has no rgb lighting options, so on that Basis, I'm out.

With the eye-fi I could set it to upload to my phone /laptop & cloud at the same time whilst on the go.
Do new cameras allow upload on the go as these cards do without having to manually transfer them ?

Yes I think so ... certianly to your phone, to cloud from phone or camera maybe? I'm still figuring out the instructions....

This seems to be a tool to do that to a PC http://dotnet.work/2016/05/flashairdownloader-2/ I've not tried it, I bought one of these ages ago because of the likelihood of losing the support but they're a pain to download from when they first came out.

I've got a relatively modern EyeFi card that was made obsolete, but they released a utility to work locally and download on these obsolete cards, it works on X2 and later cards, it doesn't work on my older EyeFi cards but the rebadged Sandisk 8GB card does work very well with the utility. So for the moment I'm still working with my old EyeFi card.

Thanks for the info, I will look into it as I have the X2 pro but I think I will also investigate how these new cameras work with wifi as my Canon G9 is feeling a bit dated and I tend to use my phone more these days but would like to go back to an SLR.

the link doesn't work

My experience with a 32g Toshiba card has been so so, it works but is slower than expected. The card itself is a class 10 and works OK in a camera, software side its an unavoidable annoyance if you have not got a WiFi camera. (Canon have a £500 adapter for mine)

​Here's a link to the official Eye-Fi desktop software, which allows local (non-cloud) setup & use of the X2 cards:

Thanks for the link. It first said my card was incompatible and took several attempts but it seems to be working now.

​If only I'd checked the NEW camera I just bought! I could have saved myself £19,what a fool.. Hang on, I did check beforehand and the one I bought, the #1 bestselling compact camera on Amazon, doesn't have WiFi, and this makes the package cheaper than an equivalent WiFi camera.. Phew, good job one of us checks our facts isn't it..

Great little card, not the fastest though.
Toshiba sent me the 16gb to review last year. My mams camera is well old, so now she has this it links to her tablet so she can view or download all her pictures.

I have the 32GB version of this card which has saved me a lot of grief when trying to get images from older DSLRs on to a laptop so I can review them and check focus, which I used to achieve by "tethering" (using a cable), but tethering (some older cameras) is no longer supported by newer operating systems. Using this card lets me download to a Win 7 laptop, and not having to connect any leads also makes things a little easier. It may not have all the features of tethering or boast super fast transfer speeds, but for me the FlashAir has been a life saver, extending the life/usefulness of my aging DSLRs.

FWIW - Card works flawlessly and is quicker than I expected - great product at a great price. Glad I didn't listen to all you gloom-mongers.
