    Why didn't nikon just put it in the body with a nice big antenna like Canon does.

    I annoys me having to wait for 200 10Mb RAW photos to arrive via USB 2. Surely wifi would be painfully slow by comparison? It would work out much quicker to find the cable and plug it in and then tidy up again later.

    Although I suppose that's not really the point. Wireless > wires.

    the current wireless system can get to 125Mb/s....... the N type can get to 250Mb/s iirc

    a 133x SD card can get 20.0MB/s..... 160Mb/s i think....
    a 66x like i have in my camera can get 10MB/s, 80Mb/s. i think wireless is very capable compared to the media the camera is writing on....

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't 802.11b, as described in the Eye-Fi blurb, limited to 11Mbit/sec? How are they claiming 125Mbit/sec?

    I'm aware that 'some' manufacturers uses non-standard extensions to the 802.11g specification, in order to reach 108Mbit/sec speeds (requiring a compatible AP, of course) but the article specifically mentioned 802.11b.. :worried:

    i was remembering the values from the top of my head, lets see what i can dig up....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11
    802.11g
    typical = 19Mb/s Max = 54 Mbit/s

    now for the 125Mb/s part...... the asus WL-520gC apparently can do 125Mb/s and it is a very basic router, the buffalo WHR-G54S can do the same thing.... again a basic model..... i think one can work with the other, i really don't know about the capabilities of this card.

    edit: ow wait, wireless b? what the hell?

    G after all, there is no logic in using B, its to slow.
