Re: Very positive experience with OMD + EYE-FI 16gb Pro 2X

I have nothing but good to say about my experience with the eye-fi card (and I until recently had the admittedly rather slow write x 8gb class 6 x2 card). I have virtually used no other card in my OMD since I bought the camera.

I shoot RAW+jpeg, transfer the jpeg to my ipad via wifi. Sort and tag the jpeg and then transfer the metadata over to my RAW files in Lightroom via wifi (which I ingest in the normal way). I have done this with over 1500 photos on a single trip.

The eye-fi does not transfer data over wifi particularly fast nor does any wifi fata transmission. It isnt really suitable for transmission of RAW files although it can be done. By my testing it takes approximately 8 minutes to transfer 1GB of data - this is approximately 300 jpegs but only 60 RAW files.
