I am looking for a way to share my pictures from my NIKON D50 with my ipad/iphone4 just as explained in this video.

How to Wirelessly Connect Your DSLR to Your iPad

I want to be able to view the pictures as I shoot them instead of waiting till I have a computer available. There is a 2GB Eye fi available in Amazon but it is being sold for 129$. I find this ridiculous. I know they have been discontinued but I want to know if there is any card available for my NikonD50 that does the exact same thing.

Many thanks!

This is getting good reviews

Transcend 32 GB Wi-Fi SDHC Class 10 Memory Card (TS32GWSDHC10)


It goes for around $60

I am actually ordering one next month.

keep in mind that only the EyeFi Pro's let you download RAW files... the cheaper 'connect' versions are limited to JPG in firmware.

Hi Char, I use a 4GB Eye-fi card in my D50, and it works just fine. The 4GB Eye-fi Pro mentioned in the video is $45 at Amazon as of this post.

Hope this is helpful,

Thank you, @brunerww. I will check this one out. Have you had any issues with it? Edit: Is your card SDHC? From what I've read the Nikon D50 does not read SDHC.

I will keep this in mind. I want to be able to view my RAW files on my electronic device and not the JPEGs. Thank you for the input.

Char - I owe you an apology. I opened up my old cameras and found that I had given you bad information. My D50 only had a 2GB SD card in it and it was the GH1 that was recording to the Eye-fi Pro SDHC :(

$8897849558_57a9145c74.jpg

So you're right - the venerable D50 is not compatible with SDHC cards - which means it is not compatible with the Eye-fi Pro - so no wireless transfer of RAW files, and no ad-hoc networks with this camera.

Darned shame - it's still a great camera.

All the best,

Bill

No biggie! Thank you for clearing that up though! I contacted the seller on Amazon that has a 2GB Eye Fi Pro SD card and questioned as to why he is selling it for 129$.
