Hi Wilt

I normally run it through my wifi networks, but if I am out of range of any wifi networks, I run an AdHoc connection to my laptop, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

Thanks. EyeFi emailed that WinXP and Vista ad hoc connections were a bit problematic, but Windows7 was much better. I just wanted to hear about success by someone with Win7 before I upgraded. I guess it's time!

Can anyone recommend a specific SD-to-Compact Flash Adapter, or are they all about the same? I definitely want to get the fastest one that I can afford, if there is much difference in speed.

Also Scuff, if you run it through your wi-fi networks, is this done using your router software, or through Windows 7 on your laptop? Thanks for your help!

I think they're all pretty much the same; at least I don't know of any comparative tests on them.

Be sure the adapter is SDHC-to-CF

I've got my Eye-fi card, and I used it with a P&S, so I know it's funtional. Now I am trying to use it with the SDHC to CF adapter, and my 5d and 50d are both flashing CF ERR, saying the card is not formatted, but when I go to the format function in the menu, it says it's unable to, and to switch cards. Any ideas?

Thomas, which specific model of EyeFi did you purchase? Mine is the EyeFi Pro (for RAW support), and it works fine with my 40D in the SDHC-to-CF adapter.

And which SDHC-CF adapter (side note - you're sure it's an SDHC-CF, not SD-CF)? Does the adapter work with other SD cards?

I used one of their original Eye-Fi cards on my MKIII and really liked it when I was shooting around the house. As I was taking shots, it was uploading them to my laptop. When I was done shooting, they were already there waiting for me. The same would happen if I were on the field with a laptop. The slow speeds never bothered me, because as Jon stated, the upload was happening the entire time.

Their support was outstanding too, because a card became really mixed up and stopped responding, their support team priority shipped a new one to me, and I sent the old one back.

So don't necessarily crack on the transfer speeds because it is very handy to have this transferring while shooting.

Thomas, which specific model of EyeFi did you purchase? Mine is the EyeFi Pro (for RAW support), and it works fine with my 40D in the SDHC-to-CF adapter.

Wilt, I have the Eye-Fi Pro X2 (8Gb) card, which claims to support RAW. It works with my Panasonic Lumix P&S via an ad-hoc connection with my computer, so I know the wireless aspect of it works. However, my P&S only shoots JPG, but I don't think that's the problem, since I have tried it with my 50d and 5d in JPG only, RAW only, and JPG+RAW settings

And which SDHC-CF adapter (side note - you're sure it's an SDHC-CF, not SD-CF)? Does the adapter work with other SD cards?

Jon (and Wilt), I appreciate the tip regarding the SDHC adapter, and I am using a JOBO SD/SDHC to CF II adapter. It says it takes both SD and SDHC, and one of the reviews from the B&H Photo website (where I bought it) had a reviewer who stated they used it with their 50d for an Eye-Fi card, although they didn't say which Eye-Fi card they were using. The adapter works with my Eye-Fi card to open up pictures on my computer via a card reader, so I believe the adapter is working, or at least the part that reads the storage is functional. The adapter also works with a regular non-Eye-Fi SDHC card.

When I had the card in the adapter, and the adapter was in a USB card reader, the Eye-Fi Center didn't recognize the card unless I slid the little plastic tab to the "Lock" position, which I thought was odd. Once I did this, I could make any changes needed, since some changes are only possible if you have the card inserted, as it now recognized the card. Unfortunately, my 50d still says Err Cf, and the big LCD says card not formatted. In the menu, I select the "Format card" option, and it says it cannot be formatted, "Change card"

Any ideas anyone? I was hoping to have it working in the next few days, since I've got a shoot on Sunday, and I wanted to be able to look at the pics on my monitor during the shoot. Thanks for everyone's help.

thomas,
In view of the content of your last post, I am puzzled and have no more to offer on this issue, particularly when you make the comment, "The adapter works with my Eye-Fi card to open up pictures on my computer via a card reader, so I believe the adapter is working", so why it does not work in your camera is puzzling.

Well, I used a Jobo SD adapter with my original SD EyeFi and it worked in my 20D. I suppose that the heavier metal chassis might be interfering with the signal, but other than that, I too am at a loss.

Well, thanks for the input. I did notice that this one is the PRO X2, and I did find a 4Gb Pro, so I think I'll give that a shot.

Guys,

The Canon 1D mk IV is Eye-Fi Connected. You can just insert the Eye-Fi Pro X2 card into the camera, and it will stay on, as long as it needs to, for the JPG's or RAW images to upload. Once the card is done, the camera will turn off :-)

Here is a list of our Eye-Fi Connected cameras, but it's not complete. We keep updating it, on a weekly basis:

http://www.eye.fi …-compatibility?postTabs​=1 (external link)

Please DO NOT use a CF adapter. It will ruin your range, and corrupt your files. Just put the Eye-Fi Card into the SDHC slot.

The X2 cards are all Class 6 cards. They will sustain 12MBps write speed, so they're only about 1/2 the speed of the fastest CF cards. There are really fast CF cards that will sustain 90MBps, but no camera can handle them. Most cameras can only handle 30MBps.

Thx --

Ziv.
