I've not run into any transfer issues using an Eye-Fi card on any of my cameras. And even if it did take more than a few seconds to transfer a photo, so what? Is this what we've become now, waiting more than 5-7 seconds for something to happen is too long? How long does it take to transfer and process the photos from your memory stick? With wifi, it's all done automatically while you do other things.

I agree, shooting events, it makes everything flow faster for me, plus having the ability to upload to my website the JPEG's as proofs puts me ahead of the curve for those that want to buy off my site instead of buying a print on-site.

I've used both the Eye-fi card and DSLR Controller for Android. The cool thing about the Eye-Fi card is that the card will upload the image to your ipad or iPhone. , whether or not you are connected to the the Internet. I use an app called Shuttersnitch which makes the transfer much easier. Once the file is in the app's gallery, you can do some basic editing and then send it off to where ever, once you have an Internet connection.
The dslr controller app allows you to control your cameras settings remotely through your Android phone or tablet. You do have to tether it with a cable. You will, however have live view, focus control, shutter control etc. the app is only $10.00.

In both cases you can check things like exposure, composition, etc. I think it's worth it.
