I thought that getting an EyeFi card for my camera would make blogging easier. I mean, just snap a picture, and then it’s transferred to your computer automatically? Result!
But the range of the wifi in the EyeFi card is pitiful. You have to leave the camera less than a couple of meters from the access point to have it discover the wireless network.
That’s not the worst bit, though. If you snap a picture with the camera elsewhere, it’ll try to create its own ad-hoc network. And then … it apparently tries to connect to it? Or something? This is what the screen says:
Man, that’s pitiful. It would be faster to yank the card and put in into an SD-to-USB card manually.
Like an animal.
In conclusion: EyeFi sucks.
