Eye-Fi Pro card brings RAW, peer-to-peer

updated 09:05 am EDT, Wed June 10, 2009

Eye-Fi Pro Card

Eye-Fi this morning launched the Eye-Fi Pro, its first SDHC card geared towards owners of entry- to mid-range DSLRs and semi-pro compacts. The 4GB card can now transfer RAW files over Wi-Fi directly to a computer or to one of the multiple photo websites the company already supports. It also adds a unique ad hoc mode that creates a peer-to-peer connection directly between the card-equipped camera and a Mac or Windows PC, bypassing the need for a network router that might not be available at a live photo shoot.

A third key addition enables transferring specific photos from the camera rather than uploading the entire batch. The Eye-Fi Pro supports most common RAW formats and should be available today for $149 both online and at both Apple as well as Best Buy retail stores.

On top of the new card introduction, Eye-Fi has also begun an Eye-Fi Connected program that certifies cameras as working with and optimized for Eye-Fi cards, including notification of enroute photo and video transfers. The initial roster includes Nikon's D60, D5000 and D90 as well as Casio's high-speed Exilim FS10 and FC100 and regular speed S5, S12 and Z29.

    With this, what, exactly is the point of the SD slot in the new MacBook "Pro"s??? This makes the trade-off between the ExpressCard Slot and the SD slot more ridiculous.


    Don't just vent here, let Apple know that we want our Pro laptops to be Pro and not just "Pro".

    take a deep breath

    While the eye-fi card is cool, the the transfers are fairly slow and there is no user interface to keep tabs on the progress.

    The built-in SD slot will be MUCH faster for pros.
