I know the D800 manual say it will work with a D800 but I am wondering just how practical this is with the D800.
With a 12mp camera I can see this working pretty good but moving the huge NEF files from the D800 seems to me will take way too long to download.

To me using an eye-fi card to just use at home seems useless, you might as well plug your camera into the computer with the usb cord, it will be way faster.

Using an eye-fi card on location to use as an instant backup by downloading your photos as you take them to a laptop through wi-fi seems like a great idea ..... but this will only work if it is fast enough.

I have never used an eye-fi card but was about to go buy one when I realized that it might not be feasible with the D800.

Anybody here using an ey-fi card ? do you think it will be able to download the photos fast enough when using it in the D800 ??
