An Wifi SD card or any other Memory card with WiFi helps you upload photos, videos and other files wirelessly to your MacBook, iPhone, iPad or other device without having to take the card out of the camera, camcorder and the like. So you can just leave the camera on the tripod, especially in cold climates, or leave the action cam (e.g. GoPro) in the waterproof housing. You can theoretically read photos and videos with a WLAN SD card when the camera is out of range, in the water or on the drone.

Toshiba FlashAir, eyefi Mobi or TOOGOO: these apps are necessary

In addition to the hardware, you also need accessories made of bits and bytes in order to be able to use the WLAN SD cards. Here I have listed the sources for the respective app for the WLAN memory cards:

Update November 2017: As can be read in the corresponding comment (see below), a WLAN memory card does not work per se in every device the way you want it to. For example, in a game camera not always the pictures and videos are transferred from the card when the device is in recording mode. Changing the modes or setting the right mode for the transfer can be so time-consuming that it would be easier to remove the SD card and read it directly on the Mac / MacBook. With many devices, however, it is not possible to say immediately whether and how well a WLAN SD card can be used - that's why the proof of the pudding is in the eating. (Update end)

Conclusion on the topic

Simply take a photo or several pictures, add one or the other video, record the relevant notes or travel diary with the dictation device or do something completely different - and then: the data on the Wifi SD card conveniently from your smartphone, tablet or laptop Read out via WLAN. The output devices (even one or more cameras at the same time) remain in their holder, case, bag or wherever they are. But you can get the data. Top!

  1. I find the post interesting. Then I bought such a card (Toshiba). I put them in a wildlife viewing camera to watch animals.
    I installed the corresponding Flashair app on my mobile phone to transfer the pictures. That goes quite well so far.
    BUT to connect the card to the app, I have to set the camera to replay mode, to do this I have to open the camera. You could easily swap the card and look at it on the PC or on the camera display. In this case, a WiFi card doesn't make much sense. Unfortunately this fact is not described in any of the numerous articles on the topic.

    1. Hello! Oh, that was new to me too. I know that the wifi SD cards do not work in some cameras. For example, with my Sony NEX 7, all models have so far been on strike because the housing is made of metal. But that also applies to Wild cameras not working, I didn't know yet. I suppose this also depends on the model. Which trail camera do you have?

      1. Thanks for the reply.
        The wildlife camera is from Victure HC400.
        The recordings work and the card works fine. Viewing and downloading to the app also works great. BUT the camera has to be opened and switched to replay. That is unfavorable or meaningless. One should have known.
        Kind regards, K. Hofmann

        1. Ok, that's good to know. I think that with most wildlife cameras it should work without opening the lid. Mine, for example, didn't have a replay switch ... but you probably have to try that out from model to model. LG! Jens

    2. Hello!

      Thank you for pointing this out, I'll adjust the post accordingly.

      Certainly, the possibility of using a WLAN memory card varies from device to device - as well as the corresponding user-friendliness. And devices such as game cameras are often not really designed by the manufacturer to be used with such a memory card. This can lead to the fact that the Wifi-SD either has to work very well itself and must be able to transmit in every mode, or that a special (and not always logical) setting has to be found on the device that enables the wireless transmission of the data.

      Best regards

  2. So don't be serious now! If the article had appeared 11 or 12 days earlier, I would have thought of an April Fool's joke, admittedly quite original, without hesitation and with absolute certainty! :-O
    WIFI SD card?! WHAT?! HOW?? LoL impossible, where would the technology be for radio etc.!? Never never not, at least not until good WLAN CABLES are finally available to buy... -.- Dude. Sir Apfelot: I take off my hat! 🎩 Truly unusual, but strangely also unusually nice to experience/discover/learn something completely (!) new! Thank you for that, and thank you for your strikingly friendly way of writing and reporting - it obviously also rubs off on your followers, who also seem to me, at least so far, to be extraordinarily nice and sophisticated! Really very pleasant with you :-)

    1. Hello Fritz! Thank you for your praise, which I would also like to pass on to Johannes, who now writes most of the articles. 😊 But this one is a bit older. That's right... the readers here are really very nice, and you can tell by looking at them! There is always one or two trolls, but Johannes has already described, how to best deal with trolls. 😂 I think that's why they quickly get bored here and look for another platform where there is less moderation... So have fun here with us!
