What brand/model of WiFi SD Card?
How do you charge the battery?
How long does the battery last?
Do you turn off the wifi when not actively in use to conserve the battery?
Any other gotchas or issues?
I purchased a Toshiba FlashAir. I have the 8gb slightly older version. I think I paid about $30 for it.
The card receives power from the device. This is the reason most of the wifi cards automatically turn off, to prevent draining digital camera batteries.
The main gotcha right now is the web interface is too slow to download the files practically. It's faster to pull the card and walk to the next room. I haven't had time to attempt browsing to it using samba (since I assume it runs on linux of some sort).
Everything works at this point, I just a more practical method of transferring the files across.
edit: I just confirmed that ftp and samba are a no go. To automate the download someone will have to make a program to transfer via http using the flashair api. I haven't spent much time on the dev forums. I'm hoping someone has already tackled this issue.
