Are you using an eye-fi SD card?

Hi all:

Any of you guys using this grip? I ordered two, for my two bodies. They seemed to function perfectly.

Today I grabbed one body and went for a walk. I went to take a photo and the batteries were too dead to focus.

I thought maybe I had left it on in storage, maybe something was up against the shutter button or something.

I came home and took out my other body. I noted that the main switch was off and the grip switch was also off. I turned on the body and the batteries were almost dead in this body also.

Both grips contained two ea genuine Canon batteries. All batteries fully charged in the last two weeks or less.

So, it seems that one of three things is going on:

The 5D Mkiii has a problem.
The Canon batteries have a problem
The grips have a problem.

I've emailed them to see what is going on. I had a Meike grip for my 5D mkii and never had a problem.
