5.0 out of 5 stars Eye Spy With My Eye-Fi, 30 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eye-Fi Connect X2 4GB Wireless SDHC Memory Card (Accessory)
I'd recently been for a weekend away and came home wondering if there was a product which would allow me to transfer photos from my bridge camera to my phone so I could upload photos to Facebook or send them to others. I found this card and a different brand, similar product. I opted for this one as it had an app for Android which you download onto your phone, so I figured this would probably be the easiest to use. It's probably good to know that I'm not technically/computer minded. I've got a good spec HTC Android phone and a laptop and I use a FujiFilm Finepix S4200.

It arrived in a box which fitted through the letterbox and comes with a USB cardreader, SD card and a simple instruction guide of how to set it up (with PC and Mac instructions). It took less than ten minutes to follow all the instructions and download the app to my phone. Everything was super easy and I just followed the prompts and didn't have to change any settings or anything complicated. After about ten minutes of taking the card out of the box I'd taken a photo of my computer, this had magically appeared on my phone (in the Eye-Fi app) and then I'd emailed it to a friend. You can choose whether to send it to a phone or a computer and I've opted for my phone.

The real test was a party we recently attended in a pub. I'd been taking photos all night and just needed to check my phone- all my pictures had been transferred to my phone throughout the night! The battery on my phone was low, so this would be something to think about if I'd have needed my phone later in the night, but that was after it had transferred over 100 photographs. In the morning I start up my laptop and sitting in the Eye-Fi program is all my photographs. Perfect! This stops my photos languishing on my camera for months on end before I get round to transferring them to my computer.

This card also comes with Endless Memory so if you are running out of space it will upload to Eye-Fi's cloud storage (I think you get 1 month free, ie you can keep any photos in there for a maximum of 1 month, as opposed to 1 month from the time you get the card). So because of this I opted for the 4GB instead of the more expensive 8GB card.

After seeing mixed reviews I was a bit dubious about this card but it's fair to say that I love it!!!
