Eye-Fi Pro reviewed. Verdict: "The best keeps getting better"

Sean Fallon reviews the new Pro edition of Eye-Fi's Wi-Fi-equipped SD cards. The hook is that it has RAW support and ad-hoc connections, which means it no longer needs a router: it can transmit photos directly to a computer.

In a nutshell, everything worked great. As always, setting things up with the Eye-Fi manager was a breeze and within minutes I was sending images and video to my desktop and to various sites across the web. Plus, the addition of selective uploading means that I could pick and choose which photos I wanted to send over the network instead of sending the good and the bad en masse.

At three times the price of a basic model -- $150 will buy you a decent Canon point-and-shoot, even -- it's still tempting to wait and see what the cameras that include it built-in will be like.

    Hmmmm… I wonder if there will be a Palm Pre / iPhone app now that allows ad-hoc uploading through your phone?

    Instant good quality seizure-proof photos with no huge clunky equipment to tote around.

    I was actually thinking Eye-Fi should port its app to iPhone and Pre.

  5. Rob Beschizza says:

    i.e. so you could have a nice camera, uploading immediately to the net or flickr via the phone in your pocket.

    That would be really awesome.
