As for wireless... Wireless is still extremely slow but very convenient for file transfers. Have a look at http://www.eye.fi/
So we won't need wireless adaptors on the camera... The memory card will have it :)

Except EyeFi cards are SD-format only, and many higher-end Canon bodies use only CF cards - including the 1D X.  So, your talking about an EyeFi card inserted into a SD-to-CF adapter which seems like a potentially problematic setup.

As mentioned when I refered to the EyeFi card, it is not near what is expected in a PRO market and I am fully aware that it is only an SD card and that a CF adaptor will be required. I was only pointing out that EyeFi has an idea with potential. They are clearly marketing for the typical family camera where mommy can take photos and it get's send immediately to facebook etc.

Eyefi going to an iPad 3 4G.
Then that's syncing iCloud or an app.

Or AirPlay the pictures afterwards via an Apple TV.


If Someone could get the wifi grip to hook up that could be a good
Way also.

You could always use the eye-fi card in a 5D MkIII. :)

Tethering via LAN or Cat 5 cable use allows for a really positive lock to the camera and cheap and common cords in endless lengths.  I just received my new 1D X (2/2013) and I have tethered every opportunity previously with the 1Ds MkIII etc. 

The problem always was the weak connection to the camera and even a small tug can lead to a disconnect and at times requires a whole reboot of the computer to get the software/camera to talk again.  I actually like EOSUtility for all it's functions and that it's free.  It's much more than a shutter release.

The speed of transfer via Cat 5 from the 1D X seems to be comparable with a USB cable to the Mac,  But the  connection of camera to computer via the Wizard is taking 2 minutes 20 seconds - an eternity during a break to reconnect for any reason.  USB can take 10-20 seconds and that feels bad but 2 minutes?

I'll most likely continue using USB unless I can speed up the connection initialization.

In time I'll figure out manual settings which might speed things but since little exists on the subject of how to and settings up outside of the Wizard I'll post here anyway.  I know it's an old topic.
