Hi Team

I am looking to get a 32gb SD wifi card.

My one main purpose - to get photos instantly onto my phone / ipad / nexus tablet onto a photo editing app which i can tinker with, and then store it.

There are a few brands in the market - Eyefi, Transcend, Flashair

Can you pls shed some light on what you have , how easy ( or not easy ) it is do what i want to do,

Any any other comments , additional features / brands to stay away from tips,

Be wary that some (possibly most) of these do not appear to do direct peer to peer to a local device as easy as one would hope, but rather to its own software, and then cloud upload to the online account the services they have you create. Giving you access to that.

I thought AWESOME when the eye-fi come out, until I found that hitch

I dont mind using a specific app to get the photos, but once its in there, i should be able to 1 ) download it on to the device or 2) share ( triangle it ) it to any of the apps sitting within android - like say whatsapp, photoshop, collage maker, etc.

would this be feasible easily. any tips on brands etc?

Hi - I've used Eye-Fi cards in the past... but these were generation one and a little flaky. Eye-Fi were first on the market I believe and have come a long way since 1st gen - with what I've read online I would recommend the latest of their cards which should do everything you want. They do not require a separate network and can transfer images directly to a mobile device when out & about (but may need to be initially set up with access to computer/internet.
I have since changed to cameras with built-in wifi capability for my business as a photographer, but understand that quite a few photographers are using the Eye-Fi cards for image transfer.

Just a general comment that full-resolution jpeg or raw file transfer may be very slow indeed (even with the new generation "X2" cards), so you are either stuck with this slow speed, or set the camera to save in small size / low quality which is probably fine for phone/tablet/web viewing - but you won't have a full-resolution copy of the image unless you have a camera with two memory card slots and the ability to record and save ie - full resolution raw on the primary card, low quality jpeg on the eye-fi card.
