    I know the p4 comes with its own sd card so this shouldn't even be in here but figured I'd ask to see if anyone has switched over and used the EYE FI brand ad cards.. I'm already assuming videos transfer to iPad during recording but curious as to if anyone has used these b4, buddy has it on his Nikon and transporting pics/vids to his phone/iPad is a lot faster when you don't have to pull out the sad card..

    Just a curious post is all.

    Was also told that video saved to iPad isn't as clear as sd card versions.. As far as the p3 is concerned...

    Thanks on any input, can't wait to get mine in a few weeks!

    EYE FI cards are SD...Phantoms use a micro SD.

    No ... video isn't transferred to your iPad during recording.
    Video and stills are recorded on the SD card in the camera.
    The videos cached on the i{ad are only 720p and subject to whatever interference there was in the Lightbridge transmission.
    They are preview quality and not the high-res videos you are trying to take.
