EZ Share Wifi SD card on Pentax K-X

I want to make my k-x dslr wifi compatible with an SD card. I have an option to use either a Transcend or EZ-Share. EZ Share is half the price of the Transcend but I don't know if it's compatible with my K-x. (I know the Transcend is)
I don't really care about the app and all that. I just want to transfer RAW files to my smarphone.
Does anyone have any experience with an EZ Share card on a K-X?
Thanks.

I use EZ-share cards with my K-r and have also tried them in my wife's K-x. No problems at all. I like the fact that the E-z share card has a physical switch on for turning the WIFI function off so you can quickly disable it to save battery. Transfering to phone is easy using either the dedicated app or a just the regular browser (Opera mobile and Safari both work forJpegs, haven't tried others).

Remember to disable the camera's auto power off, or at least set it to 30 minutes, so that the connection stays alive when you're transfering the photos. Raw transfer is pretty slow but I understand that's the case with all such cards.

Thanks a lot Suzhouren! That's why I love this forum! That's very kind of you for giving me such detailed information. What kind do you think are the best SD cards from EZ-Share?

You're welcome, glad to be of help.

I'm not sure about their current range (I bought mine over a year ago), but mine are 16GB class 10 cards and I find them more than adequate for use in the 12 MP bodies.

Make sure you buy from a reputable dealer though as there may be fakes out there.

Hi,

I'm in the process of moving from the Eye-Fi X2 cards to Flashair III (note the "III" ... the "II" and "I" are older and you should probably avoid them. Look for the "W-03" on the card). As part of that, I am switching to using the Keenai desktop app on Windows 10. I am using the cards with several cameras including my K-r and K-x.

They work fine. The W-03 (which is the "III" and is the only version that works with Keenai Desktop, I think) are Class 10 cards, so they are much faster than the X2 cards that I had (a lot of them). If you want to get the Flashair III, I think get it quickly, as they seem to be disappearing).

EDIT: You were asking about using with K-x and K-r: I have used the Flashairs (I have 7 of them now) with my K-x a lot, but I don't use my K-x now much, but I am like 100% sure it would work with the K-r, as I use it with several of my Panny P&S cameras and my mirroless Oly and Panny. I think it would be more the exception that doesn't work.

Thanks so much for the information. I ended up buying the EZ share But I will definitely try the others (like FlaashAir) in the near future.

If you do ever try Flashair, make sure it is "Flashair III" and has "W-03" on the label on the card. I think the Keenai desktop app only works with the W-03 cards (and not with the W-02 cards), or so I was told. Also there is some help on the Eye-fi forums (yes, the Eye-fi forums, Toshiba is now apparently supporting Eye-fi cards, or something like that).

With the Flashair cards, they expose a web server at Pentax Forums - The Ultimate Resource for Everything Pentax, so you can get to the pics on the card as long as you are on the same WI-FI channel, I think. Then, if you use the Keenai desktop, they can also act like the old Eye-fi cards, which is the way I use them, i.e., when I turn on my camera in range of my PC, it automatically sends the new pics to the PC.
