I haven't encountered Eye-Fi. They claim it is compatible with the Nikon D800/E. Is the point that this card works in the SDslot of the camera without problems and also provides Wi-Fi connectivity to a cellphone or other device. Can you just put the card in a card reader as you would a normal card to transfer images?

Can you recommend something I can read to get a good understanding of how it works?
