Eye-Fi or FlashAir?

New-to-me E-5 is arriving in the next week or so, and I'm considering a WiFi SD card. I was going to get an Eye-Fi, but I notice that Oly are pushing the Toshiba FlashAir cards with some of their cameras. Which would be better in the E-5?

Lightbulb Re: Eye-Fi or FlashAir?

I use the Flash-Air card. It works really well up to about 3m, so ideal in a studio

You can either use an APP on a smartphone/tablet or simply connect to it with a laptop.

Very simple

Re: Eye-Fi or FlashAir?

Thanks Graham. Does it send RAW files successfully?
