    It was the rebate from Olympus for buying the E-PL5. I got mine yesterday, but haven't had a chance to play with it yet.

    Hi, new here and just got my E-PL5 two days ago. Still getting acquainted with it and getting all the settings situated. So far, so good...way better iq than my point-and-shoot, but not as good as my Canon 60D...that's expected!

    Anyway, I'm mailing the rebate paperwork tomorrow for the toshiba wifi card, can't wait to get it and try out that feature. Thanks for all the info on this forum!

    Cheers!

    Yep, couple of weeks ago. I can't see it replacing my sandisk pro, though. It will likely stay in the bag unless I fill my 16gb card.

    How long did it take for you to receive it after you sent the form in? I'm expecting my EPL5 this week, and will also send for the Toshiba FlashAir card...

    Takes a while. Month or so.

    Mine was delivered about a month after sending in the claim. It works fine in my E-PL5.

    I like it so far. Disappointed you can't delete photos on the card though. I thought I would be able to review photos using a bigger screen and delete them. Makes the use-case for it less compelling.

    Disregard my previous message. Got home from work today and was there waiting for me. Just installed the thing and works flawlessly on my epm2. Will it work on my omd?

    Do read up on the compatibility list. I think epm2 is, but not epl5 n omd.

    However since epl5 works, I guess omd might also work?

    The E-PL5 is as well. From the Oly website under the "Mobile Connectivity" blurb:

    " the E-PL5 fully supports the new (optional) FlashAir SD storage/wireless card that turns the camera into a wireless access point".

    How does everyone like this card compared to others such as Eye-Fi?

    Of course it works well on OMD. I got my card from the E-PM2 promotion and installed it in the OMD instead. So easy to use. I will not stick it in my 5DII since I only shoot RAW there.

    I keep seeing some reference to the FlashAir not being compatible with the E-M5 or E-PL5. It clearly works on the E-PL5. What's the source of this?

    I've had my E-PL5 since early December, sent in the rebate forms right away, and still haven't received my FlashAir card...over 6 weeks. Now watch, it'll probably arrive tomorrow.
