Faster, bigger and better networking, what's not to like?
Also check out the new "Eye-Fi Center" software.
Looks great. I couldn't find an expected shipping date - any one seen one?
That sounds good.
I've been using an older model with the Leica M9 and getting pretty good results. I'm hoping that the 802.11n and ad hoc will work as well (or hopefully even better) on the new one. Amazon pre-order placed.
WOW, doesn't the M9 have that massive metal plate at he bottom of the camera? We heard that the range isn't that great and that you need to be very close to the router... N should help. It's also a true class 6 card so RAW writes will be much faster, ad-hoc will work well, and overall -- it'll be a great experience.
I'm not sure if ad-hoc will give you more range than a solid N router. It really depends. I know that my MacBookPro's airport is phenomenal, but other laptops my not have a better built-in Wi-Fi card, than a router.
But play. You'll have fun :-)
30-40 feet with the M9 is very impressive. May I ask which router are you using, and what settings?
The only reason that we list the M8 and M9 as unsupported is range. But we'll do more checking. We don't have the M8 nor the M9 in the office :-)
I see that Sony is finally making some SD compatible cameras. Any word on them for eye-fi?
End of Feb - it seems the 8gb isn't shipping yet.....
For Eye-Fi or for the Sony camera?

I know you said to not hassle you, but I would definitely get one if it was a cf card... unfortunately my D300 doesn't support SD cards... So I guess I'm putting in my vote to hurry along the CF card research and development!

I recently had some trouble setting up the Eye-Fi 8gb Wi-fi Pro X2 card on a new camera.
Have to hand it to the Eye-fi folks - their customer support in getting the issue resolved was as good as one could hope for.
We did trouble shooting at each step of the problem, they were frank about the challenges of the process and in the end all is working well.
Thanks Larry, Nicki and the other folks who have made this such a good product. Can't wait to see what new tricks are coming down the pipe.
A cf eye fi card would sure make syncing to my new iPad very nice... Nudge nudge...
Seriously, there are hundreds of thousands of pro and semi pro photographers that have cameras... That don't accept sd cards. You're company is totally missing a majority of the market! I've been wanting one of these for a very long time now.
You know what you should do? Develop an sd to cf converter that is guaranteed to work with your products. I know there are some off brand ones on the market, but why not take advantage and bring in the people that are on the fence about purchasing one. You'll not only get the pro photogs off your back, but you'll gain them as clients. Aka more money.
