Re: 5D MK3 with Eye-Fi card

I used the Pro X2 (8GB) which worked flawlessly. I mainly used it to transfer images on the fly to my iPad (2012). It transfers photos through a wifi network, but if you did not have one, it acts as a wifi hotspot where you can connect the iPad.

problems:

1) to change where the card sends photos (iPad/iPhone or PC) you need to access their website, which means you need internet access. So you should check the setup before you leave home.

2) It drains battery fairly quickly if you did not pay attention. In the field, make sure you deselect Video transfer as when I forgot to disable the wifi and went on receding video, the card kept transferring those videos to my iPad, the auto off will not activate when the card is transmitting.

unfortunately I had to return my 5DM3 as I want the "enhanced" version (the one with stronger LCD light shield!)
