There is a current thread on CR discussing the pros and cons of CF vs SD with the 5D3. Rather than take that thread OT, here's a new tangent on the subject.
What interests me is the potential to stream small JPEG files to an iPad using the SD sized Eye-Fi and Shuttersnitch, while saving RAW files to the CF card. Rob Galbraith sounds impressed, but there's a scent of advertorial about this particular reporting. It's important to get real-world user experience feedback.http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/content_page.asp?cid=7-11663-11812http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/content_page.asp?cid=7-11663-11812
This would be very cool checking files on a decent sized very high res iPad screen vs the camera display. Also good for assistants keeping an eye on things or give the iPad to a client to stop them hovering over your shoulder and to deliver the client another all-important bit of "wow-factor".

don't necessarily paint a picture of trouble free use of Eye-Fi. Wouldn't it be cool if it was a seamless, low anxiety setup? It's completely mystifying why Eye-Fi doesn't produce a CF wi-fi card, but that's another story.
So here's my question. Who on this list uses Eye-Fi with Shuttersnitch & iPad and is it a simple matter to set up as a reliably useful accessory?
