New Gear Preview – Eye-Fi Pro 16GB

It’s no secret that we love the Eye-Fi cards in these parts; Giulio even shared how you can overcome some of the limitations of shooting with a camera that doesn’t have a native solution to tethering your camera to an external (larger) display. While at the PhotPlus Expo this past weekend, we got a chance to chat with Ziv Gillat, founder of Eye-Fi, and got a first look at Eye-Fi’s latest storage solution.

For starters, the new Eye-Fi 16GB Pro card is the very first Class 10 Eye-Fi product giving it a significant boost in write speeds – something that you burst-mode shooters can appreciate. In my chat with Eye-Fi founder, Ziv Gillat, the Class 10 rating was among the most popularly requested upgrade from other photographers; simply put Eye-Fi is listening. Like other Pro cards, the 16GB Pro allows you to wirelessly transfer both JPEGs and RAW (the non-Pro cards can save RAW but not transfer).

Ziv was kind enough to demo the new card for us at the PhotoPlus Expo, check out the video below. Due to the 16GB hassle-free packaging, you can only score one online; hit up this link to order one from Amazon. (Disclaimer: We get a commission from sales generated through Amazon.com; this helps us bring you the stories you love and we appreciate that.)

    Sounds great ! I bought the 8 gig after reading about it on this site and love it. I have used it for an event assignment and also to send casual pictures via my iphone . Good to see lots more cards being launched.

      Thanks for checking out the video Glenn. I love my Eye-Fi as well. Tons of fun. I use it with iOS and Android but of the two it works much faster and smoother to connect then iOS. Not sure why that is.

    So, just to get this straight, if I am doing a studio shoot and really want to download raw files can I do this to a laptop as well? I guess I could use an ipad and maybe just use jpegs, the idea is to have something to show the client and maybe use to help coach them and also for them to make selections from
