Has anyone used on of these??

Eye-Fi memory cards: wireless photo and video uploads from your camera to your computer and to the web.


I was just thinking that I wish my camera had a Wi-Fi connection.

Interesting idea, but exorbitantly priced with respect to SD cards. Of course, you do get the wireless ability, but, man, $150 for 4gb? And what's with a $50 bump for wireless RAW file transfer? Why does it matter what I'm transferring? I personally don't like the idea of a product restricting it's abilities based on what type of file I'm transferring, and I'd choose not to support such product, even if it cost the same as a regular 4gb card.

I concur - data transfer is data transfer, and if you can move a jpeg, you can move a raw file just as easy - just trying to milk money out of the "high end" market.

I wonder if there's a hack...

seems overpriced for what you get, i'm sure 2 years from now it will be half that cost
