Last year, November 2010, I had wrote up a quick blog on how to tether from Nikon D300s to the Apple iPad using EyeFi card (see blog link). The finding was an awesome first step for professional photographers and hobbyist a like. We no longer have to carry a large heavy laptop and long USB cable or expensive WIFI attachment for our camera. We can just carry a simple Apple iPad, take the picture we want, and immediately being able to show our client a sample image in under a minute.
This year, Android users can also join in the fun. With the recent release of Motorola Xoom, using Google's Honeycomb Android OS, we can now have similar functionality as Apple folks. This method should work on other upcoming Honeycomb devices and current Android Phones (i.e.: HTC EVO and Samsung Galaxy S).
Before we start, make sure you have your portable WiFi is up and running. If you have a Verizon MiFi Card, make sure it is on and ready to accept new connections. If you are using your Android Phone, make sure the tethering software is installed (note: Tethering Software requires the phone to be unlocked. See XDA forum on how to unlock your phone. Unlock at your own risk)
Step One - Setup Eye-Fi Pro X2 Card
Step Two - Setup MoPhoto App
Now for the test. Start taking a few pictures. If it was setup correctly, you will start seeing message at the bottom right of the device and the image in 20 seconds. I recommend stick with JPG on the transfer vs raw file (i.e. Nikon NEF). The file are smaller and quicker to transfer. On the Nikon D300s where it accepts both CF and SD, you could set it to store NEF on CF and basic JPG on SD. This could be used as your proof pictures while you are on a photo shooting.
