Anyone using this combination? I just got a X2 Pro card and since the G12 has transfer settings it seems to ignore the card settings which are setup to only transfer photos which I've 'protected'.

Thanks

Adam

I have the Explore X2 and it works fine. In the past I set it up to transfer only those photos that I have protected. I found it annoying to pick through each photo and protect so I changed it to transfer everything that I shoot. That mode works also.

You changed the settings in Eye-Fi Center, under the Transfer Mode screen? Not sure what else could be the problem.

Thanks, I was using Selective Share and it seemed that photos would get transfered to the computer, but if I went back and protected them, nothing would get sent out online (flickr in this case). I've switched to Slective Transfer and this seems to work as intended. Once I protect a photo it get sent to my computer and Flickr.

Thanks

It would be great if Eye-Fi users could post to tell us the approximate useful range for these cards in the G12 and how using one of these cards affects the camera's battery life. I have seen posts where some say a range of 4 feet, some say 40 feet and some say 100 depending on their camera (these weren't specific to the G12). I know a lot is going to depend on the environment and router type (e.g. G vs. N) but some general insights would be helpful.

If anyone can comment on ad hoc connections used directly with a windows laptop in terms of speed, range and functionality, that would be great. The Eye-Fi site is not good at describing their product and my understanding is that the "direct connect" feature only works with Apples IOS and Android apps, therefore, you have to use ad hoc with a windows PCs (and that ad hoc cannot work with WPA2 security which is a bummer).

I see the Eye-Fi has released a beta firmware that will now attach the geodata to RAW files.

Thanks!

Well, the Eye-Fi card only supports B and G, and not N. It can also only operate at 2.4 Ghz.

I have a G12 with the Pro X2 card. I think the range is pretty good, but I'm not performing any empirical tests. With my wireless access point I can get 100% when next to the WAP, and 25% when 10 feet away. I have no idea what the range is on an iPhone or other types Android device, but I assume it would be substantially less at that range. The Ad Hoc networking features of connecting it to an iOS or Android device I think is more of a gimmick. I've been able to successfully get it to work, but its far too difficult for on the go wireless shooting. If really want to go down that route, get a device with a real Infrastructure mode WiFi (i.e. MiFi) and get your pictures to upload that way.
