How are people getting on with the FLU card?
6 months ago

I finally got my card up and working with my Nexus 7 and succeeded in retrieving the images from the card and today I thought I would try it out for real with some macro shots.  When I had remembered to switch the Nexus connection to the flu card, all went very well whilst using my Tamron 90mm.  I then tried a different angle with my Pentax 35mm and here things proved to be a nightmare - whether it has anything to do with card heating up, I do not know, but I kept losing the connection often at the point where I pressed the shutter button on the Nexus and then I had to go into the Nexus settings and check the connection again.  Even when both devices appeared to be connected, I got the flu card screen, but the image capture section was greyed out and only a series of re-connections by turning the camera on and off and rechecking and sometimes changing the Nexus connection, succeeded in getting the tethering back .  It all took a lot longer than without the flu card and although I will persevere, unless I can find a way of making sure that the camera and tablet stay connected with some reliability, I think I shall have to attempt to return the card. It may be that there are some tricks to learn about how to handle the Nexus in this environment.  I have to say that I do not find the Android system easy to use and rather regret not going for the mini ipad.
