NEX-7 Wi-Fi Capable (With Optional Transmitter) ???

OK....Looking back over the specs on the NEX -7 there's the statement: Wi-Fi Capable (With Optional Transmitter)

Are they simply referring to the SD cards that are Wi-Fi capable? Or are they referring to another device? Thanks in advance for the information.

I can't seem to find it... where did you notice this?

When the -7 was first advertised, Sony had a hot-shoe mounted wireless trigger which has since fallen off the face of the earth. But that wasn't WiFi.

I have the NEX-7 and a wireless SD card (Eye-Fi). Although I have not seen it advertised the way you mentioned it, the NEX-7 does show an icon with arrows indicating transmission of content (upload and download). I think this is what it means.  I'm not aware of any other devices that enable the NEX-7 to be Wi-Fi capable.

Look under the performance tab as you scroll down... I am looking in other media sources as well including the ebooks...

OK... found it at B&H:

Performance

Continuous Shooting: Up to 10 fps
Self Timer 2 sec, 10 sec
Connectivity HDMI C (Mini), USB 2.0
Wi-Fi Capable (With Optional Transmitter) Yes
Software Requirements Windows: XP (SP3), Vista (SP2), 7
Mac: OS X 10.3 or later

I haven't seen this at the Sony Store where I searched for "WiFi" in Overview and Specifications. Must be a B&H typo.

It means that the NEX-7 can display whether the wifi antenna in an Eye Fi is on, and can turn th antenna off via the menu to save battery.

Does this set up enable transfer from NEX7 to iPhone while out in the field?

Thanks

Bruce do you mean you found another actual accessory for wifi on the NEX7? 
Would you mind including a link to what you did find? thanks!  I'm trying to locate options for my wife as I'm upgrading to the a7II and will be handing off my beloved little nex7 to her.  I'd appreciate any feedback you have. I hear the eye-fi technology is still extremely frustrating.

I have used the eyefi card a few times but found it cumbersome and slow. It does use wifi to transmit your shots to your ipad also in the field without with direct wifi from the Nex7 to the ipad. I stopped using it a long time ago. To slow.  Peter.
