In a word: No. The interface with the adapter will slow the SD card down even further. Also, many report camera errors when attempting this.

uSD to SD adapter is nothing more than a housing with realign pin connection. So this adapter does NOT slow down the card in the protocol sense. If anything, it will be a signal integrity issue.

SD to CF adaptor on the other hand has a controller circuit, converting CF front end protocol to SD protoca. Now, the question is what kind of CF and SD protocol the adapter supports. I doubt this information will be spec'ed. If I have to guess, the interface will be the slower protocol. It will work, but you sure won't get very high speed from it.

I use one all the time on my 7D, so that I have SD media compatibility with my 70D. Works well.

Same here. My 7D has a 32GB CF and a 16GB SD inside an SD-CF card adapter als backup.
I never had any problems with the SD-CF card adapter.

Given that storage is so cheap these days, why not just go and get a proper CF card?

I picked up a compact flash adapter for my 7D so that I could use a Eye-Fi Mobi Sd card to transfer photos to my iPhone.

I picked up this one and it works great with the card.

If you are just going to use regular SD cards, you're better off using the money to buy a dedicated CF card.

I bought this one:

Eye-Fi or FluCards might not work with this adapter.I do not use them so that is not an issue for me.
I had a 650D (Rebel T4i) which used SD Cards. Sold the body and kept the SD card, hence the adapter.
