I recently got one of these card to put in my camera to see if the hype was all it was cracked up to be, I’ll have to say that it truly is. I can now shoot completely wirelessly and not have to worry about cables being strung all over the place and get my photos straight up on the computer and access everything on the fly. I enjoy having a much larger screen to confirm my photos on before proceeding to the next shot in the series for the shoot. What a pleasure it is to not have to be tied down with a USB cable sticking out of the side of my camera and having to finagle with it to get it out of my way when I change positions.

If you are shooting with a “Pro Camera (DSLR)” and want to be able to transfer RAW files you will need to have the “Pro” version of the cards, as the other models will not transfer RAW files. Other “Point and Shoot” type cameras have the ability to shoot RAW and you will also need the “Pro” card to be able to transfer those RAW files wirelessly. It’s unfortunate that they make you pay more just for RAW file transfers but it is worth it in the end. I now have 2 of these cards due to the fact that I thought I could use just the standard version for RAW files but that’s okay, I just made my mother happy because now she has the other card.

The bottom line is that if you are looking to upgrade to higher performance or just don’t want to have to run a cable to your camera every time you want to transfer photos then this is your solution. What a great solution it is as well!
