Yes; I have an EyeFi card and my battery doesn't even stand 50% of its performance. Fortunately I can turn EyeFi-wireless-mode off in my Nikon's D3200 menu. It's described in the user manual here:

You could turn your device into a Wifi hotspot and then EyeFi can connect to the internet via your phone (or tablet). I don't have any experience with Eye Fi specifically, but presumably its programmed to scan for a list of known wifi hotspots. I would imagine you could program it to find your phone consistently and then once your device is enabled as a ...

The cards are considerably more complicated electronically. Additional power would be needed to drive the ARM processor vs. a typical SD controller. Once you add in Wi-Fi radio and the encryption requirements that come with it you should expect an impact on battery life (though most cards now shut down Wi-Fi when it is not transmitting which helps.) The ...

I am with Eyefi and I would like to see if we can get this sorted out for you. It sounds like you may have a standard Eyefi Mobi card. What color is your card and what is the GB capacity? If it's an orange 32GB card, its a standard Mobi card, which only transfers JPEG files via WiFi. If it's a black 32GB card, then it is an Eyefi Mobi Pro card and I would ...

You can get the same result by doing the reverse using a Toshiba FlashAir card because a FlashAir card is a WiFi hotspot. So you can connect the laptop or other network-enabled device such as a phone or tablet to the Flashair. Sorry to hijack the brand you are looking for but I think it will serve your purpose.

There seems to be some evolution on that point. Eye-Fi seems to be willing to offer CF support, by certifying CF adapters for their SD Eye-fi, starting March 2015. More infos on their website: http://www.eyefi.com/lp/cf You will find a how-to guide and a list of compatible cameras. And also some words on possible drawbacks, like slower transfer times.

From the Eye-Fi web site: Folder Management In the Eye-Fi Center software click the "settings" icon next to the Eye-Fi Card icon and choose "Photos" then under "Manage" choose "iPhoto" from the dropdown.

Yes, this is what they (can) do. https://x2help.eyefi.com/hc/en-us/articles/200410368-Upload-Photos-and-Videos-to-an-FTP-Server "An Eyefi Card with Online Sharing enabled can upload photos to a publicly-accessible FTP server instead of a typical online sharing site ("publicly accessible" in this instance is defined as an FTP server that can be accessed over ...

I haven't seen this happen personally, but I have a couple of notes: Maybe I could try to 3D print a new housing Why bother? If you're having issues with the card why not throw it away and buy a new one? Storage is getting cheap these days... this isn't the first time this happened with my Mac's SD card reader You either have something drastically ...

The Eyefi card can be setup to automatically upload photos to a PC or Mac - if your camera supports the Eyefi card. I use it for wireless tethered shooting with the images going directly into Lightroom. Eyefi does not automatically clean up/delete photos - they will be both on the card and the PC until you delete them. Transmission should happen ...

According to EyeFi's Mobi Pro support article and discussion forums, you can configure a Mobi Pro to connect to existing networks (called Infrastructure Support), rather than your computer connecting to the Mobi's own network (Mobi Pro only; this is not possible with Mobi). However, according to this discussion at the Mobi Pro support site, it appears the ...

Rather than 3d printing a new housing (which has tighter tolerances than many 3d printers can do) you could try taking a scalpel or razor blade to an old or cheap SD card (e.g. I hoard camera kit and could probably lay my hands on some 256MB cards). I would try to split it into two flat halves. Then see if you can extract the contents in one piece. There ...

Try Lightroom. Basically configure your Eye-Fi to transfer photos to a given folder, then configure Lightroom to watch that folder and automatically import new images. I haven't tried with an Android, but this is the basic setup for a laptop.

SDHC cards can be formatted back to FAT format below the 2GB partition size and work in many SD cameras. The limitation will be if the Eye-fi functions will work or not. Delete was not an operation available to early models so you'd need an SDHC version even if you could find the original 2GB SD version 2nd hand. Best option is to buy a card online and ...

In regards to paragraph 4 where you ask: Can I use my phones wifi and cellular data to upload data as photos are also being transfered? The answer is yes you can with an iPhone 6. Possibly others too. In paragraph 5 you mention concerns of photos at your phone being uploaded to a remote service: This will happen unless you choose to disable the feature ...

I would suggest to look at the scripting capabilities of Magic Lantern (http://www.magiclantern.fm/). Magic Lantern runs on the 6D. The degree of automation (e.g. rename after each shot or bulk rename when script is manually run) depends on the abilities of the corresponding scripting engine. Unfortunately, this is no out-of-the-box solution, but at least a ...

Firstly, the Geo and Explore are the names of older Eye-fi cards that are no longer in production. Because they are no longer in production the rest of my answer will disregard them. Now if I understand your question correctly you are asking if you can connect to an ad-hoc network where an ad-hoc network is a network that is in existence without any ...
