So, here you are… my first video blog! I don’t know if I’ll be doing more of these, but if I do I promise to put some make-up on in addition to styling my hair!
Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB SD Card
In this video, I show you my latest gadget, the Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB SD Card with WiFi. I have always wanted one of these, but could never bring myself to pay close to a hundred bucks for one. Last weekend, I caught a “last call” deal on a Woot sale where they were offering refurbished units at about half the price of what I’ve seen them for new, so I jumped on it and got one for me and one for my husband. The video is just a brief introduction.
As you can see from the video, the packaging is just like a new unit despite being a refurb. It does have “refurb” stamped on the UPC code of the package and on the SD card itself. I’ve only been playing with it for a half a day, but it was pretty easy to set up and worked well to automatically send files to my computer. I am still figuring some things out, like how to send JPEGs to my iPad and RAW files to a computer when I shoot RAW+JPEG. I’ll post a follow-up after I’ve spent more time with it, but I have a feeling it is not as flexible as I’d hoped.
The Amazon link to the right is for the Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB version. It is also available in the 4GB Connect and 8GB Mobile versions which are available from the style selector on Amazon. The main feature of the Pro is that it supports RAW files and geotagging. You can look at a comparison chart on the Eye-Fi website.
