so is the following setup supported by the pro card?
i want to take pictures and have them instantaneously tranfered to the laptop (not using the router). in this way the laptop can show the pictures that I take at the same time that i take them (maybe connected to a beamer )
how many Mbytes per second can be actually be transfered over the wi-fi with your Eye-fi pro?
I am worried that even the maximal theoretical data throughput of the 802.11g wi-fi connection being 54 Mbit/sec will not be enough to transfer at the rate of typical prosumer cameras (in my case up to 4 pictures/sec and each picture 9 MBytes roughly)? Is there any experience in such a set-up?

Nowhere near what you're describing, but the card functions like a normal memory card, so they don't have to transfer at the rate you shoot. Once you're done shooting the photos will continue to transfer as long as the card is being powered by the camera. Note that the card doesn't delete the photos after they transfer, so you'll have to either change cards (and put the "down" card into something that powers it so the transfer can continue) or stop, wait for the transfer to complete, and then wipe the card every so often.

MikeV wrote:Some of the "Eye-Fi Connected" cameras that have additional features for Eye-Fi cards may keep the SD card slot powered while the card is transferring, even if the camera is off. It will then power down the card once all data has been transferred. If your camera is one of these models, you may want to read through the manual to see if this is supported
