Disable RAW transfer to iPad when using Eye-Fi

The Eye-Fi is a great match when paired with an iPad. My wife uses her Olympus XZ-1 with an iPad 3 (or ‘New iPad’) and the combination is quite capable 🙂 However, by default if you shoot RAW+JPEG the Eye-Fi will transfer both to the iPad. This is a bit overkill for our purposes, since if we are going to edit RAW we are going to do it on a full blown laptop or desktop PC rather than an iPad. It took me a while to find the applicable setting so here is some info to make it easier for you:
