I'm honestly not sure the best section to put this question, so mods, feel free to move this thread around.

Here goes. I'm a photographer. I take a lot of shots using my DSLR. I'd like to be able to share some pics right away using my Lumia 1020 or my Surface RT. The thing is, I'd need to either bring an extra SD card reader for the tablet, or wait until I'm home to share them. There's also the convenience of being able to take a pic, bring it up on a larger screen, and show it to a client, or tweak it on the spot.

Now, I know many of you are all "You have a Lumia 1020, just take a shot with that", but that's not really going to be the best way to get a shot in most cases, and I have a lot more flexibility with my DSLR while I'm out for a shoot than I do with my 1020.

I want something like the Eye-Fi, but that card requires a special app, and they don't support Windows RT or Windows Phone 8. Does anyone know of a good Wi-Fi enabled SD card I can look into for use with my DSLR and Windows devices? Thanks!

I think the most interesting thing is, I dug all over EZShare's site before posting this thread and didn't see that. Thanks for the links, I may try out Transcend's and let you all know if it goes well. I wish someone would give these proper support on Windows Phone and Windows 8/RT.

I have been using Eye-Fi since Android 2.2 and have asked the company if they will make one for my then HTC Mozart and they said no. Nothing has changed today.

Thanks for that heads up! I'll gladly not support them if they don't want to support me. Blarg!

I have now tried the transcend eye-fi card together with the app NC SDWiFi and can confirm that if works. There are some features that I miss though, like automatic pairing, but that might come in the future. It works well enough to be usable though.

I have used an eye-fi card with my dslr with an android tablet, windows PC and a hacked seagate satellite drive. problem is, these tend to be low powered wifi cards and unless you monitor your downloads/uploads, you may or may not know when the downloads are done. Now my DSLR, a canon T5I, has eye-fi card support, so it will not auto power off until it's done, but it was a bit unreliable and SLOW. Even worse if you shoot raw.
