Hi all, sorry for just dropping in and asking a favour.
These Eye Fi SD cards, has anyone used them and if so how good are they?
What are the transfer rates, for say a full blown RAW image, down to a normal JPEG image?
Reason I ask is I would like to be able to transfer images from my D200 to my laptop 'in the field' and rather than pay £600-£800 for the Nikon wireless unit I thought these may do the job, at the fraction of the price. Is it to good to be true?
Thanks in advance.

I've tried them on my canon 60D and didn't get much joy (difficult to set up, unstable and slow to transfer)
With the EM-5 I found a different story, easy to set up, stable connection via an ad-hoc network with my Asus Transformer Pad and fast with full res jpg. Deadly slow with RAW though
You really need to hear from someone who has the same system as you I think, as it seems from my limited experience to be system dependent as to whether it works well or not.

Brian I think you can configure those cards to leave the raw file and only upload the jpegs.
I have mentioned before on many threads of a similar nature, from experience, the best way is to shoot Raw + jpeg, set the jpeg to the smallest possible file size, somewhere around 2mb, then they take about 20 seconds to ping to a Tablet
I use this option frequently to show a sitter, whats been shot during a portrait shoot, ideally when there's a break ( change of lighting / clothes etc ) gives the unit chance to catch up.

Yep its all you need, it would be a waist of time uploading Raws to a tablet.
