What Eye-Fi cards support adhoc networks?
On the Eye-Fi website, there are not many details of the cards and there are three types listed:
In addition on Amazon I see:
- Eye-Fi made be SanDisk?
Itai pointed out that there is also:
- Toshiba FlashAir
However it is currently not available in North America
My idea is to use one of the cards and some custom written software on a laptop to setup a "mobile" studio without needing to rely on a network. Being able to display the images I take instantly for the subject on a nice screen anywhere with the least amount of gear would be awesome!
I just received a Pro x2 and can confirm that there are several ways to connect to the card:
- Connect over a wireless network [card -> router -> computer]
- Set up an adHoc network and connect the card to that [card -> computer]
- The card does broadcasts its own network, allowing devices to connect [card -> computer]
I have had the best performance over an adHoc network with images transferring quickly, although not instantly. I have yet to try transferring RAW files. The software allows you to pick a folder on the computer to save the images to.
