I have a 7D and it only takes CF card.

I've read that you need to get the 1st gen. eye-fi card for it to work on a cf adapter...

anybody has success doing this?

While earlier models of Canons worked with some earlier models of Eye Fi in SDHC-to-CF adapters, the newest X2 version Eye Fi apparently do not work in adapters with the most recent Canons...see the Eye Fi web site for specifics.

I have successfully used a Eye Fi Pro in SDHC-to-CF adapter in a 40D.

My main intent was to be able to have an ad hoc connection with a laptop, so I could shoot and have the image sent to the laptop so that it could be projected with a digital projector, for class instruction. I ran into a wall with getting it to work with ad hoc connection to a Windows XP laptop in spite of Eye Fi tech support help, although connection to a router-connected PC worked.

I have previously posted that even Eye-Fi said it wouldn't work with their latest cards, well I got myself a copy of this since I needed it anyway: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/​370479897687 (external link)

Put the 8GB Pro X2 card in it, put it in my 7D, took a few pictures, and watched in amazement when the Eye-Fi transfer status windows popped up!

Range is well within the size of a normal studio, if a stud wall gets in the way the transfer speed slows (as seen in the transfer status window's progress bar).

Of course the adapter has metal covers on both sides, I'll try to peel them off to see if the range increases :) !!!

Puzzling, since Eye Fi and some users have confirmed issues with the 7D and the SDHC adapter used with X2 versions of their product!

I use the 2 gb classic one in and adaptor in my 1dsm2. My sd slot broke and I wanted to shoot tethered to my iPad. Works great. Different adaptive will work with different cameras.

Ohansen,

Thanks so much for this info. Bought the adapter you linked to and an 8Gb X2 card and it works great (through a router) with my 5D Classic, 40D and 50D. Very pleased with the results. Now if I could just get XP to cooperate on setting up an ad hoc network. :P

I never could get it to work, and Eye-Fi themselves said setting up Ad Hoc is easier to do in Windows 7. Someone else posted that the Ad Hoc worked in Win7, but he had to use Windows 7 Professional, IIRC.

[edit] Found the thread, yes it has to be Win 7 Pro to get Ad Hoc to work... https://photography-on-the.net …p?p=11795236&po​stcount=14

Yeah, that was the same response I got. However, I must say their tech support was quite friendly and helpful. I'll find a work around for the ad hoc issue. So far pretty pleased with this little card. Thanks!
