good item tested on 5D mkII – SDXC / Eye-Fi to CF Card Adapter - Black Reviews

Pros:
works very well with Canon Mark II and eye-fi card, despite Canon says it does not work! Most of similar adapters had a metal shield to protect from RF interferences, however this locks the wifi signal when using an SD wifi card. The lack of shielding in this adaptor, favors a much better reach of wifi signal.
Cons:
none
Other:
A bit afraid after reading Canon warning, but reeading some positive test in web help me decide. On top of that, I've found that I can save money also as SD card speeds are quite good now compared with CF cards normally faster. Latest models of Sandisk with 95mb/s are comparable with the fastest CF cards at much lower price. It helps not only in this aspect but also to reuse SD cards to your second (normally cheaper camera) that use SD. It helps also in passing data to computers without the need of a CF adapter, just the standard SD slot included is enouh.
Bottomline:
Vvery good buy, definively recommended product.
