Post Eyefi with Canon 5D mkII
I have a friend looking to use the above combination with a CF adaptor. There is conflicting information on various websites as to whether or not the Eyefi card will work or not. I have been using it successfully with my cameras but am not sure about the 5D mkII

Is there anyone out that is using this combination and can confirm that it works or not. Range only needs to be approx 10M

Thank you

I use it in mine. The older non pro card and it works.
Although range can be very short. 5m-10m with very clear line of sight. But put people in the way and transfer distance is down nothing almost. It does not seem to travel through more than two/three people.

Having the router on the background high up might help. But have not tried it an event since.

If it helps - I use one in a 7D with a router with no problems. Has transmitted over 30-40 ft with line of sight to router. That's using a Cf adapter with a 'mark one' eye-fi card. Tip - if the adapter has a metal casing, remove as much as you can CAREFULLY, this will improve range.
