On Battle of the Wi-Fi Cards: Eye-Fi vs. Transcend article (179 comments in total)

Interesting. I’ve given up on both the Transcend and Eye-Fi cards.

I could never get the Transcend to connect reliably to my iPhone and the Eye-Fi card causes lockups in my 5D Mark III. I’ve read the “manuals” for both and the online FAQs and had nothing but problems.

The final nail in the coffin for Eye-Fi was when it got corrupted (luckily with no pictures on it). I put it into Lumix GX1 and a message flashed that the card was not compatible with the camera. Reformat the card and it still wouldn’t work in the camera. At least with the Transcend card I have a fast, reliable SD card.

Perhaps you could write more on how you got them to work reliably with your cameras and devices? Thanks.

As far as I’m concerned neither is ready for prime time.
