Does anyone here have any experience with one of these type of devices?

At $4.99/month, sounds expensive for a photo organizer.

It is basically just a cloud storage business that links all your devices that are connected to the internet.

Wasn't looking at the cloud system or monthly service fee (which is included), just the ability to transfer photos from my camera without moving it, and/or wiring it with a USB cable.

Moving the camera from the tripod to download  and edit photos can be a pain, especially if you need to redo something.

I just pop out the SD card and connect it to the computer.

My laptop has a port to do this, makes life real easy.

For my desktops I went through a pile of readers until Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register. There is a Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register which sells for what I paid for the older version. I have no idea how well it works.

I just picked up a Nikon 5600 which has a built in bluetooth and it transfers images nicely to my TV or Laptop.

I wish my camera had bluetooth, this is about the closest alternative I can find.
Thanks Ron

My older D40 died on me and the lens could be used on the 5600, so all I had to purchase was the body, which I got for half price on Labor Day so I jumped on it.

I don't know how the batteries are on your camera or if you take large images (as in RAW), just a heads up that this product will put a drain on your battery while transferring data and even when not in use.

you can purch wifi cards for your camera that don't require the cloud storage. Here's a link

Thanks Richard.

I know there are other brands out there that perform similar tasks, but always at a price. On the "eyefi"  the cloud storage feature is optional, you don't need to subscribe to have the card work.
Another reason for my choiceis that I have a Canon, and if I use am "eyefi" brand card it will appear in my on-screen menu, while others may not.

My wife and I own a photography business and we purchased one when they came out for sale. We haven't used it because you need to have the computer open and on for it to work properly. I would suggest not wasting the money and getting a higher class (10) is best. The higher the class the faster the card will record the photos and the better quality. High class cards work well for us when we shoot a wedding and take 2,000+ pictures haha.

A:) Let's take roll call to see if we're all here.
B:) Well now, it could be that we are all here, then some of us aren't all there.
A:) Right, let the record show that we are here.
C:) Who?
