Hi, has any body tried the Eye fi pro x2 16 gb card on the em5. How doe it works? The transfer speed is emough?


I use one but there are many wifi SD cards on the market including Transcend, Toshiba and EZ Share. The 16 GB pro x2 Eye fi is Class 10 so it is fast enough in terms of data read/write times. In terms of 'wifi' data transfer rates ALL SD cards are not really fast enough to transfer RAW files and are good enough for jpegs. The 'wifi' data transfer rate is about 100mb a minute.

The main advantage of the Eye-fi card is that it can be turned on and off in camera and it can do 'automatic' batch downloads as well as integrate with various smart device apps. It is quite expensive, quite difficult to set up and 'unreliable'.

The Transcend is cheapest, I think fastest, it offers tethering to smart devices and is impossibly easy to setup.
