Seeing that many devices are now going wireless I thought I would like to go down this route using an iPad to review my images as they were taken, more or less in seconds after pressing the shutter release. I bought and tried an Eye-Fi card and I used it in my G12. I found it to be very slow in downloading and if close to other networks, problematic.
Having purchased a WFT E5B Transmitter for my 7D I found it very unfriendly to set up in Ad Hoc mode. The Canon manual is so over complicated that I had to resort in looking around forums for answers, eventually finding a way of achieving a result which made things very much clearer and almost by accident I got it all working.
Perhaps a review by PhotoPlus with a run down on settings and meanings of network terms used would be a great help to the many people I came across having setting up problems, so many in fact I had to write this message to see if help can be given by the magazine to all those out there with setting up the WFTs from their cameras to an iPad or laptop.
