iPad + Eye-fi Card + SD-CF Card Adapter + Shuttersnitch App = Wireless Camera Tethering
show user profile  nm8r
I've been shooting with my camera wirelessly tethered to my iPad, and I've been so happy with the setup that I just wanted to recommend it to the photographers here who also own an iPad / iPhone / iPod. My clients are also happy to be able to review photos quickly. It's such an indispensable tool too for checking my photos for focus, clipping, exposure, etc. in a much larger format (iPad's 9.7" screen) than the back of the camera alone. Also, not having to lug around and be wired to a heavy laptop in the field is such a plus.
People with cameras that take SD cards would NOT need the SD-CF card adapter like I do.

UK residents:

If you do use the SD-CF card adapter, make sure to take out both back & front metal cover plates for better Eye-Fi connection and transfer speed.

The SD-CF Adapter isn't officially supported by Eye-Fi right now and if your camera uses a CF card it won't be listed as a compatible camera on their website.
Here are the cameras that work with the SD-CF card adapter as per the Eye-fi forum:

Canon EOS 7D (some users have been reporting ERR 02's, even with the latest 7D firmware)
Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and EOS 1Ds Mark III (both of which have Eye-Fi capability already, so the adapter is not necessary)
Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon EOS 50D
Nikon D3X,
Sony Alpha DSLR-A900, A850 and A350

I have my camera configured to shoot RAW + Small Jpegs and have ShutterSnitch transfer ONLY Jpegs so the transfers are faster. I transfer all the RAW images to my desktop after the shoot and Eye-Fi is configured to work with Lightroom.

I use an iPad Wallee case and Wallee Connect on my tripod-

Is there anything for the reverse of this? Being able to control your DSLR remotely through iphone or ipad?

The idea of only transferring the small jpegs to the ipad for viewing by the client during the shoot is a good one. Never through of just doing that and dismissed the idea as I'd hate to know how long it would take to transfer a 24mp raw file from my sony a850 :S
