I am ecstatic! I’ve tried several SD/CF adapters to try to get the Eye-Fi Pro X2 to work on my 5Dmkii and none have worked. But a few days ago Adam Pendleton left a comment on a post earlier this week that the Extreme CF Adapter works on his 5Dmkii so I immediately ordered it and and today I got it and it works beautifully with the free Eye-Fi iPad App. It also has an Android App.
This is fantastic, for the cost of the Eye-Fi Pro ($90) you get to see every image you shoot show up on your iPad, iPhone or Android device with in a few seconds. It’s perfect for letting a client see what you are shooting, just getting a high-res look at what you are shooting or using the Eye-Fi Pro X2 for a camera on a elevated pole or remote situation.
I have no idea if this Adapter works with other DSLRs that take only CF cards but I suspect it might. If anyone has experience with this adapter on other DSLRs besides the 5DMKII please leave a comment and let everyone know. Since this adapter is only $13, it’s not much of a risk to just try it out.
Thanks to Adam Pendleton for pointing this out to me. You made my week!
