bought this WiFi card for use in my Canon 1D Mark III and I can say it works almost flawlessly. I say that because it's not yet clear to me what the conditions are for immediate synchronization to my smart phone (Samsung Galaxy 3). It seems that it can take only less than one minute to automatically synch up, but other times it can take longer (about five to ten).
Once synching occurs however, the pictures are transferred immediately with no problems. I chose to go with the smaller capacity (8GB) because my camera can support two memory cards (the other one being a CF card w/32GB of memory).
However, in case you're wondering about how the 1D Mark III manages the two cards, here's a tip: the EyeFi card can only transfer JPEG images, so set your CF card (slot 1) for RAW and your EyeFi card (slot 2) for JPEG, then set your "Record Function" option to "Record Separately" and the "Function" selection to view "slot 2." These selections will allow you to store all pictures on both cards, but transfer only the images in slot 2 to your smart phone. You can then perform a "deletion" of all pictures from slot 2 because that's the card your viewing based on your "Function" selection, while the CF card will continue retaining its images.
There are many other ways things can be managed, but this works best for me.

This product has too many restrictions. I definitely won't recommend it. If you want to buy a WiFi sd card for your camera, please go for Eye-Fi Pro or other brands. First, Mobi only works with one mobile device (PC/MAC is NOT supported) at the time. I installed Eye-fi app on my android phone and my android tablet. Both recognize my new Mobi but Mobi will only send new photos to my cell. Second, Mobi will automatically send ALL new photos to the linked device. You can not preview and only upload the selective photos (Selective Transfer is available in Eye-Fy Pro X2). And the connection is fast but not very stable. Sometimes the uploading will be interrupted. From my point of view, the only one pros of this product is its super easy set up. This product needs a lot of improvements.

      Comments about Eyefi 8GB Mobi SDHC Wi-Fi Memory Card (Class 10):

      I wanted to test out the card because of mixed reviews so I wanted to try it for a couple days and never had to return it because it turned out to great. I can be shooting on the street and have it on my social media in minutes while simply walking down the street. The quick transfer of videos and pictures w/o having to be in a wifi location is great. Just make sure when transferring that you don't have your DSLR set to sleep after 1min because once the DSLR is sleep the transfer pauses. Set it to like 2 mins and your good.

      When card connected and works, it works well. Easy to set up and transfers pictures easily. But when I turn the power off on my Canon Rebel 300D, it won't power back on without removing the card and then putting it back in. And the last time the camera didn't come back on at all. I had to recharge the battery. I think that even after you power down the camera the wifi on the card continues to drain power.

          Tried it on a Canon 5D Mark III and it wouldn't turn on once the card was inserted. Read some forums and found out you need to uninstall Magic Lantern to get it to work. So if you have this camera be aware of that.

              Received item from B@H in timely fashion. Set up, in one word, Simple. Add eye-fi app to your devices, put in activation code and go. Put card in my camera a Canon 7D MII and took off for a local park 5 miles from my home. I took approx. 20 images. Returned home and turned on my iPad, iPhone, and android tablet and watched as all the images came thru flawlessly. Worked like a charm. We'll see what the future holds. So far so good.

              Great for those who like to upload photos to social media ( FB, IG, etc..) but hate using phones for picture taking.

              This version of the card only transfers JPGs not RAW.

              The way it works - activate the memory card via eyefi's app which you download on the device of your choice. Each card has a specific code. Once authorized the card broadcasts a wifi signal. Use the device to connect to the card - same way you connect to the internet - and there you have it!

              Eyefi will automatically push all the photos on your card to your mobile device. You can view them on the eyefi app. From there you can send them via email, text, edit in vsco, etc and so on.

                  I shoot mainly RAW however I needed something to I could post my photos instantly to my Social Media sites. I purchased the smallest Eye-fi I could find because I was just going to have my camera (Nikon) save jpeg to the SD card while the RAW files went onto my CF card.

                  The packaging has a little scissor mark of where to cut the thing open. As I cut it I met with some resistance, turns out I was cutting the little card that has the serial # on it.

                  Setting it up was easy on my Android (Samsung Note 4), download the app, follow onscreen prompts, done.

                  On the nikon I had to play around a little to get the SD card to save JPEG and be used as secondary slot - all in the nikon settings.

                  The initial connection took a few tries, but once connected images transferred over very quickly.

                  A few days later, turning the camera on and snapping a picture, it took a little bit longer to connect and start to transfer images than the first time. However once it had "found" the phone and the phone found the card, it worked seamlessly.

                  Great product, I'm very happy with it.

                    Poor substitute for built-in wifi

                    By Wifi Dependent Traveler

                    from NYC

                    Comments about Eyefi 8GB Mobi SDHC Wi-Fi Memory Card (Class 10):

                    I tried the eye-fi app for a camera without built-in wifi and found it fell far short of my expectations. Unlike most apps you cannot select the photos you wish to transfer, instead all photos start to transfer when you connect. If you transfer the photos to a mobile device they will not immediately show up in your camera roll, you will have to select which ones you want and then copy them over. Once you download the app it also starts to act like a primary photo storage center and will make a copy of all your new photos, therefore using up extra space on your device. I also had difficulty maintaining a connection between the app and the memory card during transfer and would frequently have to reconnect. Finally I've heard that if you reformat the card then it may stop working completely. I guess that if you have a camera with no other wifi options then this may be usable, but otherwise go with the apps built for specific camera brands. I've used Canon, Sony, and GoPro and all are more user-friendly.

                      Setup was fairly easy, and it worked right from the start. Well, once I read the instructions...

                      It was a bit slow to establish a wifi connection while in Midtown Manhattan, but works like a charm in the boondocks.

                          With a somewhat complex networking product, you think they would give you SOMEONE to talk to if you run into trouble, which with networking products you usually do. Tried support via E-mail ONLY. Received an e-mail back asking me what my issues were after I told them the issues in a very lenghty description which apparently didn't get through to the support folks. Thank GOD they are building WiFi into the newer cameras so we won't have to use products like this.

                          A little slow but works well. Using it to check focus on my I-pad when I'm out shooting.

                              I used this on my trip and it was great being able to see my pictures on my iPhone immediately. I heard that keeping the wireless on would drain my battery so I only turned it on when I wanted to transfer and did not experience any issues with my battery life. My only complaint would be that my phone doesn't have adequate space to store all the pictures and I had to constantly delete things, but that's not a fault of the card.

                                  Was a gift for my sister and she is in love and very grateful. Might invest in one for myself.
