Eye-Fi's Pro X2 card is the company's most capacious yet, with a capacity of eight gigabytes. It's also the fastest, complying with the SDHC Class 6 performance rating, and including support for the latest 802.11n wireless networks. Aimed at enthusiasts, the 8GB Pro X2 card is now able to transfer Raw files. It also now supports ad-hoc connections, allowing data transfer directly to a computer without the need for a wireless router - useful if you're away from home and have a laptop or netbook with you. Pricing for the Eye-Fi 8GB Pro X2 card is set at around $150 from the company's own store.
Alongside the launch, the company has also released its new Eye-Fi Center application. A replacement for the previous Eye-Fi Manager, which was web-based, the new Eye-Fi Center is a desktop application that only requires internet connectivity for certain functions - for example it's now possible to configure an Eye-Fi card to access a new wireless network without having an internet connection established. Beyond this, the Eye-Fi Center also includes a number of other new features. A redesigned user interface supports drag-and-drop, and allows browsing of images and videos by month or date of capture.
Eye-Fi Center also provides access to data on the computer regardless of whether it was uploaded from an Eye-Fi card, and the ability to upload data to multiple online services concurrently. Finally, it's also possible to view larger versions of images and videos in the Eye-Fi Center, and to view further information such as the geolocation at which the data was captured (when using cards that support the feature, which works only in areas covered by Skyhook's Wi-Fi Positioning Service technology).
Eye-Fi Center is available for download immediately for all Eye-Fi users, and once installed, precludes use of the previous Eye-Fi Manager application. An official Eye-Fi video on YouTube demonstrates the new features in a little more detail.
