ez Share Wi-Fi SD Card Review
I have been using the ez Share Wi-Fi SD card for about a year now and absolutely loving the experience. Infact more than me it’s my clients who love it. Simply because it lets them review and select the photos while I am shooting live onto iPad Mini Retina. I bought this card from Future Forward for Rs. 2700/- after a good discount from them. It took me barely 5-10mins to set it up with my iPad Mini Retina.
I use my Canon 5D Mark III the the ez Share Wi-Fi SD card tethered to my iPad mini Retina during product shoots. While the RAW files (15mb each) get saved up in my CF Card, the small/medium format files (800kb) get transferred to my ez Share card for quicker uploading for my clients to review the shot. The iPad Mini Retina obviously takes the overall photo reviewing experience to the next level. Even my clients find it amusing that they get to review the photos wirelessly and that too in a fraction of a second. It’s takes away from the tradition of cable tethering to the MacBook or PC which more or less bounds to a place. With the ez Share Wi-Fi SD card attached, you can move around the 25-50 mt range of the studio room while I am shooting moving around the space for angles.
